This popped up on Eurogamer a few days ago.

Gang Beasts is a multiplayer beat-em-up, in which you play as fighting jelly men of some nature. The ultimate goal is to be the last "Beast","Jelly Baby" standing.
This is an alpha/beta version thats been released as a demo of some kind for PC.

A more complete version of the game is due later in the year.

More on the game below and video :

Its not trag3dy. It REALLY isnt. Couple of pads and couple of mates and this becomes hilarious!!

Its still a bit rough and the odd wee bug slips in, but honestly one of the best wee gems ive found this year.

Like I say grab a buddy and a pad or 2 and play.

It looks funny as hell, if rather unfinished at the moment. Might be worth checking out!

Its pretty basic Neo.

On the xbox pad. You have top L/R buttons as each fist, tap to punch. hold to hold on. X once you have a hold picks others up. And as far as any of us can tell Y just makes you flail your arms wildly.

Had a 4 player other day on the Wheel level. So much hilarity ensued!!!

Not to mention that once we figured out how to grab and hold onto stuff it soon became a battle of wit and endurance.

Its useless on your own playing it, NEEDS FRIENDS.

I read Gang Breasts...I need some rest for my eyes.

Game looks strange. Could be hilarious as you say, but not much is shown apart from characters behaving strangely.

Gonna have to take your word for it. Nothing in that video says to me this is a game I absolutely have to play.

Hahaha it looks like it's just as Coli says, something to enjoy with people while possibly otherwise augmented and/or enhanced. Coli had me at "jelly men of some nature".

Pretty much Neo.

It sat on my desktop for weeks and we even loaded it up and didnt play it a few times, just kinda went "ooft looks crap and the control schemes weird to setup", (turns out you dont need to it has been setup for xbox pads after the main start up screen). So eventually a couple of weeks ago we gave it a 2nd chance when I had some buddys up.

Then the madness ensued. Along with Bro-Force and Goat Sim, Gang Beasts is just one of those brilliantly simple little games.

No big budget, no bs, no redfining genres, just a simple, fun, addictive bit of gameplay. Brilliant!!
