REZ PLZ Rlsd

REZ PLZ is now available for PC and consoles, offering a platformer with co-op support where sacrificing and resurrecting one of the players is a key element. The Windows edition is available on Steam and there's a 20% discount if you pick this up in the first week. You can see the game's pixel-art gameplay in action in the Launch Trailer and find more details in the announcement:
Join apprentice wizard brothers Arcan and Zeph as they fight the forces of Dark Arcanum armed with little more than the Resurrection Scroll, a tool they can use to bring each other back to life. While traversing through platforming challenges and solving puzzles, the brothers will encounter dangerous monsters and traps that require one of them to die in order to advance. But thanks to the magical scroll, the brothers are able to resurrect each other from a multitude of one-hit deaths, ranging from being sliced in half, eaten by creatures, burned alive and more. While progressing through the game, the brothers will unlock new spells that grant them abilities to conquer the increasingly difficult challenges ahead.

“REZ PLZ has been a passion project for me and my brother, and we’re ecstatic to see it out in the wild,” said Nathan Pearce, developer at Long Neck Games. “Making a platforming game about brothers working together has brought back memories of passing the controller between the two of us as kids. Only with REZ PLZ, we can play together and no longer have to take turns!”

REZ PLZ’s features include:

  • Co-op Play – REZ PLZ puts a unique spin on the traditional co-op concept. Instead of trying to keep each player alive through each level, players must strategically kill one of the brothers to solve puzzles and defeat enemies. Use the Resurrection Scroll to bring Arcan and Zeph back to life.
  • Death Around Every Corner – Death is everywhere in REZ PLZ, and can come from a multitude of one-hit deaths, ranging from being sliced in half, eaten by creatures, burned alive and more. Death is part of the adventure!
  • Unlock Magical Spells – Unlock new spells to conquer the increasingly difficult challenges ahead, but be careful because these brothers are poor at magic and one bad spell can mean death!
  • Unlockables – Explore and find a bevy of unlockable cosmetic items and unlockable challenging gauntlet levels to customize your gameplay.
