Coilworks teased us last year by announcing Cloudbuilt, a single-player, old-school 2D action platformer crossed with a modern Third Person Shooter for PC. The result seems like a high-speed Mirror's Edge with guns that I very much want to play.

The most recent video shows off richer-textured graphics and various gameplay mechanics, including the multiple paths players can take to progress. I imagined Cloudbuilt to have a level-up system, but the developers state on their Greenlight page all the skills are unlocked from the beginning. The game is said to be hard enough to master on its own, and I'm ready to start practicing now.
