Back this on Kickstarter!
"Ravensdale is based on classic arcade shooters like Contra and Metal Slug, but focuses heavily on co-op interactions between players. For example, while you rapidly pull yourself towards and past your buddies, they block projectiles heading your way and feed an overdrive mode to boost the entire team! We’re also pushing for strong interactivity between player characters, enemies and the levels to provide a wider range of tactical options to both solo players and assault teams."

Ravensdale is an awesome looking 2D Orc kill-fest that blends elements of Unreal Tournament and Killer Instinct... which is to say, what I took away from the Kickstarter video. Ravensdale is the next game by Black Forest Games, the team that created The Giana Sisters. I like the direction they are taking this one and its nice to see a game keeping the awesome but doing something a bit different in terms of visual and play style.
