NEW GAME+ wasn't dead, it was only resting its pulse, and now the first footage of Lone Survivor developer Jasper Byrne's Zelda/Demon's Souls-inspired action RPG has emerged from the colourless fog, to show off the game's four-player Vs mode. Filmed at the London Indies night (hence the shakycam), the video shows three players battling it out as the Knight, Ranger and Barbarian classes. As with Demon's Souls, there's a hell of a lot of rolling involved, in a game that's come a long way since it was legally declared dead back in November.

Well, this sucks. Jasper Byrne, developer of accomplished sidescrolling horror Lone Survivor, has announced that NEW GAME +, the untitled RPG that was going to be his next project, has been axed. Byrne broke the news on his blog, with the reason that it was "too big for a single person to make".

Jasper Byrne, the sole developer behind atmospheric indie horror Lone Survivor, has revealed his next game on his website. Like Lone Survivor before it, the currently nameless (at least to us) project has gone through a number of different prototypes and art styles, but he appears to have settled on a gorgeous isometric viewpoint with detailed sprites, as evidenced by the picture above.
