Play Cobalt, A Platformer Published By Mojang

Cobalt, the action game of "running, jumping, rolling, shooting, throwing, dancing, hacking, rolling, flying, sliding, climbing, looting, deflecting, racing, piñata-ing, passing, scoring... and even more rolling!" is now available in Alpha, developers Mojang and Oxeye tell Kotaku.

The game is still under heavy development, but as with Minecraft, willing gamers can pick the game up now at a discounted price and be guaranteed the final version at no additional charge. The full game is expected to sell for about $US26. The current price is about $US13.

Cobalt is Mojang's second game published and the first third-party developed game they're behind. In releasing this game, the company is also creating a unified Mojang account.

OK, enough with that. Go play Cobalt.


    $26 for an indie platformer? Really?

      Isn't it not an indie, because it is not independent, since it is published by Mojang?

      It looks interesting, but Mojang seem to be banking on a lot of goodwill to get people to buy it almost on trust.

        Good point - I don't consider them indie anymore, which really makes the whole "fund our development" approach seem pretty weird.

      Eh, so? Super Meat Boy I have seen for more than 50 retail here.

        SMB was a fun little game. In my opinion, its not worth near that amount. $10th max.
