When the Joystiq crew gets together in person, things get intense. We need somewhere to channel all of that pent-up editing rage and story-scheduling mania, and thankfully we've found our outlet: TowerFall: Ascension.
TowerFall is an archery combat platformer for up to 4 players. It's a local party game centering around hilarious, intense versus matches. The core mechanics are simple and accessible, but combat is fast and fierce. The focus is on player mastery and friendly rivalry. It’s best played competitively with friends, crosslegged on the floor within punching distance of each other.
