The developer of Furi is making a co-op RPG

Furi, 2016's stylish hack-and-slash-meets-bullet-hell cult hit, was actually too fast for my ageing hands to manage.

Check out the teaser trailer above.

The game already has a Steam page, which points towards a 2020 release date. It also outlines the premise very briefly: that you play as a pair of lovers who have escaped to a "lost planet". You can play it solo or with a "special someone" in local co-op. The studio has been working on it for two years, and musician Danger is providing the soundtrack.

Either way, it's deliberately a big departure from Furi, which we gave a mighty 86% back in July 2016. And like all sci-fi games now, it has floating islands for some reason:
