The Nightmare Cooperative is an upcoming title from the folks at Lucky Frame, the developer behind Gentlemen! and a selection of other popular titles. The new app, however, is something different, offering gamers a roguelike experience with a couple of interesting twists.
Outlined in a recent article from PocketGamer, the app sees gamers sent off into the wilderness to bring gold coins back to the local council (which has ran out of cash after a bout of overspending). From here, players embark on randomly-generated levels featuring treasure chests ready and waiting to be looted. However, bringing coins back to the council isn’t that easy.
Levels are full to the brim with enemies, there are “deadly holes in the ground to dodge,” and in true roguelike fasion, death means “starting over from the beginning,” PocketGamer explains. The publication adds:
It [the game] also has grid-based movement, and the catch is that you control your whole party (up to four) with a single set of controls.
In other words, when you push up, they all move up unless they hit a wall or an enemy. This means that every move you make has to be contemplated if you want to survive.
This, combined with the fact that opening chests of gold in The Nightmare Cooperative sees even more enemies spawn, means players are going to have to work hard in order to succeed.
According to the developer, we’ll see The Nightmare Cooperative launch for PC next month, after which point the game should make an appearance on both iOS and Android.
Here’s hoping we don’t have long to wait until The Nightmare Cooperative launches on the App Store. We’ll keep you updated with further information as we receive it.
