Super Rude Bear Resurrection
Super Rude Bear Resurrection is a challenging 2D platformer in the mold of Super Meat Boy, but with a unique twist: each of your deaths effectively makes the level easier to complete. This is primarily due to leaving behind a corpse. Your fallen predecessor can render a spike trap safe to step on, give you a boost when making a difficult jump, or block an arrow from being fired at you, among other things.
Conceivably, the entire game can be beaten without the assistance provided by corpses, and narrowly making my way through sections without a death was exhilarating. But much of the fun to be had with Resurrection comes from seeing how stacking up corpses allows you to approach an area differently than you would on your first run through. Combined with interesting boss concepts and a killer soundtrack, this is absolutely one for platforming fans to look out for on PC, PS4, and Xbox One this spring.
