30XX ‘Mega Mode’ trailer, screenshots

A new permadeath-free game type.


Batterystaple Games has released a new gameplay video for cooperative roguelike platformer 30XX introducing “Mega Mode,” a new permadeath-free game type.

Here are the details, via Batterystaple Games:

30XX will introduce a new permadeath-free game type called Mega Mode alongside the returning roguelike Arcade Mode.

Mega Mode generates a series of levels for Ace and Nina to tackle without worrying about losing progress.

Should they fall in battle, 30XX’s heroes can try other stages or revisit them with newfound knowledge and boss powers to overcome obstacles, which remain consistent during each Mega Mode playthrough.

Mega Mode harnesses procedural generation to construct levels with an assortment of layouts, themes, difficulty tiers, and more. This allows Ace and Nina to return to the journey for a new experience each time.

30XX is due out for consoles and PC via Steam in 2021.
