You are 4 friends. On a couch. You have 4 controllers. All you need is a post-apocalyptic excuse to duke it out. Only you never thought you’d love a fungi spewing gun that always leads to the same end result: glorious dismemberment. Moribund is a local multiplayer game that takes place in a post apocalyptic world where a highly aggressive fungus strain has devoured most of the life. The gameplay is fast paced and has an "easy to learn, hard to master" approach. Two to four players can play simultaneously.
Each player has a gun with two firing modes. The first mode is used to immobilize the enemy. While the enemy is immobilized, you can charge you harpoon (your second firing mode) and shoot it against the helpless enemy. If he hasn't escaped then his gory, splattery death is guaranteed. Simple right? But when you add 4 players, a couple of hazards and power ups in the mix everything becomes much more exciting.
Moribund is an early access 2D arena battling game that supports up to four players in local multiplayer matches. Each character has a gun with a firing mode to trap an enemy and a mode to charge up a shot to kill them. Stages are made more interesting with different hazards such as firing harpoons, explosives, spinning blades, etc and, while they might not look very interesting, they have some good backgrounds. Unfortunately, like many enjoyable arcade style games released on Steam, the game has no multiplayer component and is meant to be played with controllers so you will need to be able to have your friends over, own four controllers, and have you computer able to use all four controllers at the same time (either requiring a lot of spare USB slots and wired controllers or owning a wireless receiver). In a recent update (1-13) they mentioned being unable to add multiplayer with their current resources and that is why they need a publisher, their previous update was in September so, while the game might be in Early Access, they seem to be in need of more support to update and ship the final product. It can be fun to play with friends, as most things can be, but the game isn't that interesting and I don't know if the developer will get the assistance needed to add multiplayer or to further improve on it.
