20XX Steam Early Access BETA Review Video

20XX is a roguelike action platformer that you can play with a friend. Jump and shoot your way through ever-changing levels, collect awesome new powers, and battle mighty bosses in the name of saving the human race maybe.

Batterystaple Games started making 20XX in the middle of 2013. Studio founder Chris King is a huge fan of the Mega Man X series, and wanted to reimagine a modern version of the game with procedural, roguelike gameplay and multiplayer co-op. The result was the (then named) Echoes of Eridu, which ran a successful Kickstarter campaign in May 2014. After renaming the game 20XX, Chris joined the Fire Hose Games accelerator program in late 2014, and is now on track to launch in 2016.
