Munchkin: Quacked Quest Announced

Asmodee Digital announce Munchkin: Quacked Quest, a casual co-op action/RPG in the Steve Jackson-designed Munchkin universe coming to Steam and consoles this autumn (thanks Gematsu). Word is: "Dive into Munchkin: Quacked Quest and re-discover the parody, puns, and humor from the hit card game Munchkin by Steve Jackson. Gather gold, throw your foes (and friends) into sacrifice pits, collect ducks, eliminate the monsters—from reanimated skeletons to the Potted Plant and even the Plutonium Dragon—and reach the highest level to win the game! After all, there’s only one spot at the top and you just found a chainsaw…" This post has a Teaser Trailer with a first look along with a bunch of details:
A time not so long ago in a universe that mocks our own...

Welcome to the frenetic world of Munchkin, where those daring enough among you will defy the best wishes of your party and friends to become THE ULTIMATE! If you are someone who would backstab your allies to claim that epic new item, then Munchkin: Quacked Quest is the game for you...

Take on the role of one of four not-so-unique races alongside your frenemies to fight back the evil within the dungeon. Face off against terrifying foes, such as reanimated skeletons, The Plutonium Dragon, or even the dreadful...Potted Plant? Be careful though as in this parodic and quacky world, created by Steve Jackson, the worst enemies you will face may very well be sitting beside you!

When this trailer hits 88 quacks per hour, you're gonna see some serious stuff!
When Munchkin releases, you'll gather up your friends to start your dungeon—like myself and my three friends, Jim, Alan and Melanie. All you need to do to start your dungeon is load up the game, set your run duration and with the help of the Wight Brothers, your dungeon modifiers will be randomly chosen to create your unique run experience! Now you're ready to—quite literally—plunge into your first dungeon and have a blast...that is until someone takes your golden duck... Alan... If you let my duck go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and you will end up at the bottom of a sacrificial pit!

Remember, the aim of the game is to finish the dungeon as the highest level character. There can be only one Munchkin! To do so, you'll have to capture ducks, defeat enemies, claim loot and lose friendships along the way--kind of like Alan and Me... Remember that there are modifiers and different conditions that will help you to become the Munchkin; so pay close attention to everything that is happening, as you never know when the game or an Ala--I mean--another player will swoop in and steal the win from you!

Remember this now...They may take our ducks, but they'll never take our loot!
