Guacamelee, as mad as it sounds, with chickens

Sony's first Pub Funded game is hitting the Vita and PS3 soon. Developed by Drinkbox, the folks behind the fabulous Mutant Blobs Attack, its a Metroid-vania style action-platformer set in a magical Mexican inspired world. Check out the PSN blog post introducing the game.

The game draws its inspiration from traditional Mexican culture and folklore, and features many interesting and unique characters. Guacamelee builds upon the classic open-world Metroid-vania style of games, by adding a strong melee combat component, a new dimension switching mechanic, and cooperative same-screen multiplayer for the entire story. The game also blurs the boundaries between combat and platforming by making many of the moves useful and necessary for both of these.
