Project Totem Launching on Xbox One Next Month

Project Totem (now titled Kalimba), the latest colorful title from developer Press Play, is a gorgeous co-op platformer that offers a unique single-player control scheme and weirdly comfortable couch co-op.

While far from a puzzler, controlling two characters offers an engaging and challenging take on traditional platforming mechanics, and emphasizes teamwork (as death is linked between partners). Levels in the game also have an interesting scoring system which amps the replayability by tenfold. Everything from the steps you take to the collectibles you accumulate is calculated for the scoreboard.

Players in search of an addictive adventure that can be conquered either solo or with a friend you’re willing to lose over a video game grudge should look no further. Xbox One and Xbox 360 owners can expect to download Kalimba next month, while PC gamers will have to wait until early 2015.
