Creative Director Peter Bielatowicz describes Basement Crawl as a skill-focused, maze-based 2.5D action game that focuses on setting traps for opponents. Bielatowicz wants it to be "as skill-based as possible" and is working to "exclude the luck factor and remove the dependence on leveling-up characters."
Blooper Games plans to offer 4-player local play, 8-player online play and combinations of both as scenarios to host the destruction of friendships. Stand-in bots will be available for a friend's absence during single player campaigns.
Basement Crawl is being developed for the PS4 launch window, but its release date is yet to be determined.
