Penarium, the soon-to-be-released “madcap platformer” from Netherlands based Self Based Miracle, has new trailer for us today. And it’s all about its lead character Willy dying… over and over again.
That’s kind of the point of the game, though. Penarium is a frantic platformer where the arena based levels are hard and the fails are spectacularly gory. Willy, our young, pudgy, farm boy antihero, is kidnapped and forced to compete in a murderous circus side-show. Willy must navigate his way through 30 single-player challenge levels – or become a pile of bloody goop. His choice. Here is Self Made Miracle’s official description:
“Penarium is a frantic, 2D arena arcade game in which you take on the role of our quirky antihero; Willy. Willy is trapped in a crazy circus show where he needs to run, jump and avoid an array of killer death-traps while being cheered on by a sadistic crowd that’s out for blood; his blood.”
Also included in Penarium is a “crazy” single-player Arcade mode that spans 3 levels, as well as couch co-op Versus and Co-Operative multiplayer modes. The game is releasing September 22nd for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC at $9.99. A trial version is being offered too if you want to give Willy a whirl before purchasing.
