The Bridge developer The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild has unveiled its next game as the competitive block-falling action-puzzler Tumblestone.
Based on the first gameplay clip below, the action seems pretty simple: blocks fall and you try to shoot them with the corresponding colour before your pile 'o squares hits the ground. Tumblestone will be compatible with up to four-players and will feature local and online competitive multiplayer, AI-based single-player and co-op modes.
"Local-multiplayer 'party' games are severely underrepresented on modern consoles," the developer stated. "Most modern multiplayer games tend to focus on networked play, with one user per computer/console, but people still have fond memories of plugging four controllers into their older consoles, in playing with three friends and/or enemies."
"We think the world is ready. Ready for the inevitable return of local-multiplayer games."
Tumblestone is due this autumn on PC, Mac and Linux with the possibility of moving to other platforms.
