New Blip: Panzer Paladin

Tribute Games is the studio behind Wizorb, Mercenary Kings, Curses ‘n Chaos, Flinthook, and technically Ninja Senki - all of which are chunky retro-style action games - and they're back with Panzer Paladin... a chunky retro-style action game. You take the role of the titular paladin who clunks around the world in power armor, slashing baddies with a sword, but it wears down as he deals damage. But he can collect weapons from fallen enemies and swap between them, or sacrifice them to cast spells or activate checkpoints, and he can block incoming attacks with his sword. The pilot of the power armor is comparatively small and is able to eject and run around on his own, reaching areas that the armor cannot fit, and even doing a bit of grappling along the way. He's not all that handy in a fight, but fortunately, he can teleport his armor back to his location using special devices called launchers.

The game is coming to PC in Spring of 2020.
