Here be dragons

We love a good four-player, action co-op game every so often to sit down and play with friends on the couch. Diablo III and Gauntlet: Slayer Edition are only two of several titles that we've conquered, and this particular author is instantly adding Stormcloud Games' Brutal to the games-to-be-conquered list with our co-op partners.

With the visuals primarily constructed out of ASCII symbols, Brutal is very visually arresting. As for the roguelike gameplay, you'll be traversing procedurally generated levels as a Ranger, Mage, Warrior, or Amazon to get to the 26th floor so you can claim the crown of this domain's ruler. With hordes of foes to defeat along the way and what looks like awesome, unique abilities to exploit for each hero, this is one indie title that we sure have our eyes on.

Do a lot of these four-player action titles feel the same to you? Are you looking forward to hearing more about Brutal? 1337 $P34K in the comments section below to let us know what you think about this particular title's graphics and gameplay.
