Mojang’s First Third-Party Title Will Be Cobalt

on August 18, 2011 8:00 PM

Minecraft developers Mojang have been looking to get into the publishing racket recently, and I guess they’ve found their first game: Oxeye Game Studios’ Cobalt. It’s not a bad game to start off with either, as Cobalt’s been getting quite some buzz lately for its gameplay, graphics, and potential greatness.

A platformer centered around a robot-cyborg doohickey named Agent Cobalt, the game looks to be an extremely action-oriented Metroidvania-style game, with striking visuals and a fantastically appropriate upbeat soundtrack. Check out the new trailer after the jump, and prepare for another possible winner from Mojang when this comes out soon on the PC.
