Mayhem Brawler

Doughlings developer Hero Concept has announced Mayhem Brawler, an urban fantasy-themed beat ’em up with comic book-inspired hand-drawn backgrounds and frame-by-frame animations. It will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam in 2021.

Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:

To Protect and Serve

While answering a routine call on a patrol, Dolphin, Star and Trouble—the most popular officers of the super-powered law enforcement agency, Stronghold—find themselves in a sequence of events that will alter the fate of the entire city.

Excessive Force

Let’s get one thing straight; if you ever think that a day in the life of a super-powered law enforcer is easy, you couldn’t be more wrong, as there are greater threats than street gangs in urban fantasy themed Mayhem Brawler. Using your arsenal of combos and special abilities, you and your co-op teammates should make life miserable for those super-powered criminals, fend yourself from the fury of werewolves, resist the hexes of street wizards and confront the megacorp led by vampire houses that enforce their goons to do their dirty deeds.

The Mayhem Universe

Comic book-inspired hand-drawn backgrounds and frame-by-frame animations coupled with a kick-ass soundtrack will deliver a jolt of adrenaline to your controller. With the choices you make, you will shape the flow of the story and finally reach one of the three different endings in Mayhem Brawler universe, where each corner has a story to tell.
