New Awesomenauts Videos Will Make You Want the Game

by on September 12, 2011

It’s okay, you can admit that you’ve not heard of Awesomenauts, but after watching these videos you’ll end up keeping a very close eye on this title, we can assure you.

Awesomenauts has a classic 2D action platformer style, but also has MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) leanings. Up to six players can battle it out in over ten different alien worlds.

To determine the next Awesomenaut to be showcased, Ronimo launched a Facebook poll a few weeks ago. The votes are in, and dtp and Ronimo Games are proud to present the clear winner: Leon Chameleon, the French assassin.

Leon’s life is one filled with crime, women, and borrowing without returning. He lost his arm in an unfortunate jeu de boules incident, and spends most of his time smoothly escaping debt collectors. He found himself becoming the most wanted criminal on the planet after accidentally breaking into the bedroom of the prime minister’s wife, while looking for the wine cellar. Knowing that no amount of charm could save him this time, he planned his escape from the system. This daring plan was eventually delayed because he refused to escape in anything else but a space yacht.

Leon joined the Awesomenauts to earn some quick cash, spending it on beautiful women and exquisite meals. In combat, he puts his natural reptile abilities to some good use, and slices up his enemies with great precision. Combat is a form of art for this green gentleman.

Awesomenauts does not yet have a release date, but is set for release on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
