Filter's gloomy rendition of "Happy Together" sets the perfect tone for the May 31 launch of inXile's co-op focused dungeon romp Hunted: The Demon's Forge.
In the latest behind-the-scenes video for inXile's Hunted: The Demon's Forge, the development team explores how they tackled crafting the game world, and how players can create their own bits of it using the game's Crucible map editor.

You may want me as a coop partner in Hunted: The Demon's Forge, because on day one, I'll be very familiar with the dungeon crawler's cooperative combat and puzzle solving.
It's hard to not think of Gears of War while playing Hunted: The Demon's Forge. It's hard not to assume the Epic's blockbuster shooter would be superior to the Hunted's upcoming fantasy riff. But Hunted adds a good spice: co-operation.
The head of Hunted: The Demon's Forge developer, inXile Entertainment, doesn't take comparisons of his dark dungeon crawler to Gears of War unkindly—even if you're labeling it Spears of War and Gears of Warcraft.
inXile Entertainment's Brian Fargo wants to update the classic dungeon crawler, popularized by MUDs and dark medieval adventures like Stonekeep and the Wizardry series, for the modern age, for the Halo or Gears of War player, with Hunted: The Demon's Forge.
