Proximity Alert: Monsters & Monocles

Monsters & Monocles, from developer Retro Dreamer, is a chunky arena shooter that can be played alone or with up to four players (with a single pool of lives) in online or offline multiplayer. The game is procedurally generated, leading to new level layouts with each playthrough, as well as new items, enemies, and bosses. Collecting relics allows players to unlock new abilities, and these items become more effective as they are used in successive sessions. Also, the game features music and SFX from Hyperduck Soundworks, the composers behind the soundtrack for Dust: An Elysian Tail.

The game is coming to PC, Mac, and Linux via Steam on August 16.
