Steam Demo Launch of Pyramid Plunge – a lighthearted cartoony action roguelike

Minecraft

PolyCrunch Games just launched the demo of their first game “Pyramid Plunge”, for Windows PC.

Pyramid Plunge is a Spelunky-esque lighthearted action platformer in pixel art with procedurally generated levels that offer a challenging experience every time you play. You take control of an odd cartoony couple, Giorgio and Felicie, who got separated from their tour group and are now trapped in the Great Pyramid. Worse still they’ve entered a cursed chamber and unleashed the curse of the pyramid. Your job: Escape the pyramid while protecting Felicie who’s scared of everything and paralyzed by fear. Use your partner as your weapon of choice by throwing your partner against mummies and other creatures. In the demo you get to control Giorgio. Try and be a gentleman and not get her killed! In the full version you also get to play as Felicie and she gets her revenge throwing Giorgio around! If you aren’t fast enough, you get to swim in a flooding pyramid!

Key Features:

Roguelike Platforming – Randomly-generated, fully-destructible levels are filled with traps, monsters and lots of loot. You’ll also find equipment from previous lost explorers who didn’t quite make it. Quick reflexes and quick thinking on how to use the environment to your advantage will go a long way!

Hilarious Local PvP – Enjoy comical battles with your family and friends, where the player who enters the exit with the most money wins! Throwing things at your opponent and hitting him in mid-air has never been this fun! Get out his collected loot Sonic-style and steal it outright. Taunt your opponent with the Carlton dance!

Play online – Invite your Steam friends on your virtual couch using Steam Remote Play Together.

Pyramid of the Day – Each day a new set of levels is generated. Get to learn the best path and brag your highest score on the online leaderboard which resets every 24hrs.

Lovable characters – The odd couple, Giorgio and Felicie are two complete opposites. She likes reading and visiting museums and old temples. He likes beer and farting! Will they put their differences aside and find their way out?

Learning by Dying – With each excruciating, hilarious, and surprising death, you’ll learn how to think faster to escape the traps and creatures lurking in the pyramids.
