Vikings On Trampolines is an upcoming multiplayer battler about bouncing vikings around and making sure not to go splat on the floor. Two players boing around the arena and aim to land on the supplied trampolines so as not to die, while also trying to knock each other out.
It looks very silly indeed, which I fully approve of. There are power-ups that will give players the advantage over their opponent, and the first person to knock the other out five times is victorious. There's no word on when we'll be seeing it released, but in the meantime you can check out the official VoT site (Cheers again, Marcus!)
On a related note, D-Pad Studio are the guys behind Owlboy, a stylish vertical scrolling platformer that still hasn't seen the light of day. I did a quick scan of the entire world with my godly hand (aka I Googled it) and turned up this recent interview over at Achievement Locked, in which the developers says: "It's currently in the finishing phase... We're expecting to use no less than 1-2 months on finishing the game." Sounds like we'll finally get to play it!
