    lol what the fuck? Not gonna lie I’m kind of interested.

  • OldPalpy

    Looks cool but being tied in to that film will drain that cool right out of it most likely.

  • InfectedAI

    Agreed. Interested only because I like WayForward.

  • sanic

    Do you have to be tom cruise?

  • Fenrir007

    Interesting, but hopefully its better than the movie.

  • ChaoticPesme

    So it’s a metroidvania of some sort, judging by the GBA style minimap.

  • bgrunge

    A wayforward metroidvania? Yes, please- I dont care about what it’s tied into.

  • Guest

    It’ll be good because it’s WayForward, but goddamn what an unfortunate property to be tangled up with.

  • Mr0303

    WayForward are awesome, but I’m not so sure about the game.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    WayForward are no strangers to making decent licensed games based on shit licenses.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    Yeah, and the final boss is Brendan Fraser.

  • RichardGristle

    You mean do you GET to be Tom Cruise.

    Yes and he has all the powers of Xenu.

  • Lea Pastillaroja

    The Mummy?
    wich is it the one with George of the Jungle and the scopion king?
    is it gonna be a Metroidvania? that map on the lower right looks promising

  • NukeA6

    And of course this is gonna end up being better than the movie. I’ve yet to see a bad game from WayForward.

  • Neojames82

    No the Tom Curise one

  • tetrisdork

    It will be funny if the game saved Universal’s Dark Universe project.

  • sAy_YaS

    2d, side scrolling, sprite, run-n-gun, (possible metroidvania going by the mini map on the bottom right of the screen)??? I’m in!!!!

  • Nagato

    There’s worse inspirations for a Metroidvania title than a generic monster franchise, especially one that brings together just about all the classic movie monsters that once featured as bosses in Castlevania.

  • No offense, but… this was announced like… over a week ago? It even says so in the tweet you linked to.

  • Zanard Bell
  • So not only is this a movie tie-in, it’s a tie-in to a real shitty movie.
    I don’t know if even WayForward can save this.
    The sprite work in this screenshot looks pretty decent though.

  • OldPalpy

    That is true just feels like this is a very intensely shit license due to being attached to their desperate attempt to create a cinematic universe after DC made it mainstream to be tired with them last year effectively ending it’s reign as the cool thing that everyone has to do in cinema. This game would be brilliant but anyone saying that will either follow it up or preempt it with how shit the movie was this could either give it a cult like status or make people ignore it.

  • TheOnceAndFutureKing

    The graphics look amazing, and Wayforward are good at Zelda 2/Metroidvania type games, so I’m optimistic for this one.
