[MUSIC] We're here at PAX Australia 2014, checking out some of the independent games that are happening in the indie pavilion. What's your game? Okay, so, Crawl is a local multiplayer dungeon crawler. And your friends control the monsters. So you've got one player controlling the hero, exploring all these dungeons. And, and the other players control these ghosts, and it have a trap, then all try to kill the hero. And if they succeed, they become the next hero, and it instantly like swaps around. And everyone's against them. And they've gotta try and reach level en, and fight the boss, and beat the boss. And that's how they win the game. Yeah, so it's sort of dungeon crawler party game, really. Wow. So, four players? Yep, four players. All right. Excellent. And if people wanna get their hands on this, how and when and where? So we're already at steam level access for PC, Mac, and Linux. And we're hoping to like, we're adding huge features at the moment and we're going to try and release early next year as the full thing. But yeah you can get your hands on it right now. Fantastic, thanks so much. Yeah, no worries. Great to be here, yeah. [MUSIC]
