Let's talk about Cobalt.

Hello readers!
I just got home after my first university week, I just can tell you that it feels AWESOME! I mean, living with friends and no parents around is something really worthy, never felt this indipendent.
But anyways, new weekend, new posts and today I'm going to talk a little bit about Cobalt.

What is it?
It's a platformer indie game that is going to be released anytime soon!
It's developed by Oxeye Game Studio, in collaboration with the well known Mojang (creators of Minecraft and Scrolls) it has some juicy 2D graphics and an really interesting gameplay, it includes also an enjoyable multiplayer mode that in my opinion is going to be the strongest point of the game.
But more in general, as the developers would say, this game is all about: "jumping, rolling, shooting, t h r o w i n g, dancing, HACKING, rolling, flying, sliding, climbing, looting, deflecting, racing, pinata-ing, passing, scoring... and even more rolling!"
Here is the last official teaser:

Did you listen at the music when the title "COBALT" comes in? if you did, isn't it an incredible soundtrack? I fell in love with those few notes there!
In fact Cobalt was nominated for the "Excellence in Audio" award at the 13th annual Independent Games Festival; you can find the musician on Soundcloud or Twitter, just search for "Anou".
At the end of this month the alpha's pre-order is going to be up BE SURE NOT TO MISS IT! :D
