Team17, best known for developing the Worms series, has a very promising 2016 as a game publisher as well, and the studio released a new trailer showing off some of the titles that it will be putting out next year.
Perhaps the biggest title it will be releasing is Yooka-Laylee, the spiritual successor to Rare's celebrated 3D platformer Banjo-Kazooie. The game plays exactly like the original game, except instead of controlling a bear-and-bird combo you have a bat-and-... whatever Yooka is (a gecko? The developer only refers to him as "the green bloke with no pants.") The game originated as a Kickstarter which had a £175,000 goal - and raised £2M.
The other is the hotly-anticipated Allison Road, which itself is also a sort-of sequel to the frightening horror game P.T. In the game, the player takes on the role of an amnesiac person who wakes up in a creepy British townhouse. In order to restore their memory, the player has to gather evidence in the form of letters and photos that provide evidence of a ghastly fate for his family.
Naturally, it wouldn't be a Team17 year without a Worms game, and Worms W.M.D., which was announced earlier this year, will for the first time give players vehicles to use.
The other two games include Sheltered, a fallout shelter simulation in which the player must manage the survivors of a nuclear war, and Strength of the Sword: Ultimate, a wild third person beat'em up action game in which the player wields a sword that doubles as a rocket launcher and a flamethrower.
