Powerhoof is an indie dev we fell in love with when they released the party game / dungeon crawler / roguelike Crawl, and now they seem to have revealed a new title in Acid Knife.
We’ve been following the developer’s Twitter account for some time now where it has been sharing videos and screenshots of a new project, but yesterday seems to be the first time the developer gave it a name.
This was shared in the tweet below which was meant to simply show off the menu and titles screens but, as far as we know, this is the first time the name of the game had been shown to the public.
Also working on a title/menu screen… most of my time has been trying to learn how to program the menu, sound component etc, but also lots of fun fiddling with shaders and stuff :)
The audio is a bit crummy, but it's THERE haha so my sound setup at least functions! pic.twitter.com/b1T90dpVLT

While Acid Knife may just be a working title and that may be changed when we get an announcement, it’s still nice to learn a bit more about the game we’ve been seeing snippets of lately.
As for gameplay we don’t know much yet outside of the fact that this is a sidescroller of some sort, which makes it noticeably different from both Crawl and their most recent title Regular Human Basketball.
