Pinball Platformer Skeleton Crew Announced for PC, Launches Fall 2020

Skeleton Crew

Modern Wolf announced their upcoming game Skeleton Crew, during the Guerrilla Collective showcase.

Developed by Cinder Cone and featuring platforming “with a pinball-like twist,” players control a squad of adventurers that can kick allies and enemies into one another. The pinball mechanics are used to solve puzzles, do damage, and defines much of the gameplay.

Skulls, zombie brains, and debris are all able to be kicked across the stage. Identifying objectives and mastering angles when launching objects around the stage will be critical to success in Skeleton Crew.

You can watch the official trailer below.

You can find the full rundown (via Steam) below.

Welcome to the crumbling world of Karpathia where humans are the endangered species. With legions of monsters trying to decimate what’s left of mankind, only the Yeoman Eldritch Extermination Team (Y.E.E.T!) can protect humanity against the hordes of chaos.

Whether you choose to face the journey alone or join forces with your friends, you’ll have to weaponise everything to stand a chance; skulls, brains, demons, witches… chickens?

Skeleton Crew is a frenzied platform brawler set against the backdrop of a gothic hellscape, where you can use everything and everyone to smash your way to victory. Line up trick shots and give a good hard kick to launch anything (including your enemies and friends) at high speed, wreaking havoc on the environment, causing carnage to your foes and solving puzzles to boot.

Of course, if that’s not enough you could always use your sword, I suppose.


— Use the unique launching mechanic to defeat enemies and explore the farthest reaches of every map.

— Explore the vast and crumbling Gothic world of Karpathia with its fortress ruins, desecrated graveyards and hellish caverns.

— Unlock 11 playable characters like Cowl the Liberated Lich and Tristesse the Weeping Paladin, each with their own distinct abilities.

— Venture into Karpathia alone, or with up to 3 friends in local or online multiplayer.

Skeleton Crew launches Fall 2020 on Windows PC (via Steam).
