Avalanche 2: Super Avalanche Getting Free Demo for Greenlight
Beast Games’ Avalanche endless climber game captivated players in 2007, which lead to the creation of the newly announced sequel, Avalanche 2: Super Avalanche. The game is currently available for pre-order, but Beast Games needs the help of gamers to officially get the game on Steam.
Avalanche 2: Super Avalanche is currently in the Greenlight process on Steam, so the more votes of confidence it receives from indie gamers the better chance it will have of being available on the most popular PC gaming portal on the planet. To help encourage gamers to vote for it on Steam Greenlight Beast Games will be releasing a free flash demo of Avalanche 2: Super Avalanche this upcoming Monday (4/21) at approximately 12 noon est.
Not that you should need to play it before giving it a vote, because it is a pretty rad game with new roguelike mechanics inspired by Spelunky and Binding of Isaac. Now each level will dynamically generate, so no two games will ever be alike. Players can also upgrade their marshmallow hero thanks to the game’s many shops, which will be key in taking down the plethora of bosses that they’ll encounter in this creative endless climber.
Our very own Ray Porreca had a chance to check out the game while at PAX East, so make sure to read his preview to get a better idea of what Avalanche 2: Super Avalanche is about. Don’t forget to hit up the game’s website this Monday to play 30-minutes of the game for free to get a better feel for its controls. You should also head over to Steam and give the game a vote for its Greenlight campaign. After playing the demo myself I can tell you I had no qualms with pledging my support, because it’s highly addictive without being overly complicated. All hail the indie game movement!
