The Game Bakers, best known for their boss-rush title Furi, have teased their next game, Haven.
Haven can be played solo or with a friend in co-op, and it looks like combat could be turn-based, judging on the image above.
It’s been in development for the last two years and is coming to consoles and PC, although there’s no exact release window just yet.
The Game Bakers will be providing more details in the near future, but in the meantime, you can somewhat satisfy your curiosity with the above images.

Publisher Blowfish Studios and developer Drakkar Dev’s “mech action” game, War Tech Fighters, is making its way to consoles later this year.
The campaign features 33 single-player missions and can be played from either a first or third-person perspective, while there’s also a survival mode which allows players to face off against endless waves of enemies.
Mechs come in light, balanced or heavy varieties and can be customised with more than 180 upgradable parts and systems, allowing players to build a mech that suits their playstyle. Thousands of liveries and paint options add further personalisation to your hulking machine.
“A War Tech’s agility and destructive capabilities shine in space as they launch brutal assaults from long-range and narrow the gap for up close and personal sword battles and stylish execution moves,” reads the press release. “But fighting isn’t everything when it comes to War Techs.”
“Performing high-risk stealth missions, navigating through radiation fields, intercepting coded messages and solving environmental puzzles are all in a day’s work for pilots.”
To celebrate the game’s arrival on consoles, those who buy the game on Xbox One, PS4 or Switch will be granted access to Archangel War Tech special set.
Available from the start of the game, it features the powerful Glory Sword, Redemption Halberd, and Faith Shield and can “turn the tides” of tough battles in your favour.
No release date has been announced just yet, with War Tech Fighters scheduled to arrive sometime in Q2 (April-June) this year on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.

Lince Works and Merge Games have announced a release date for the Switch version of stealth-em-up Aragami.
A Switch Signature Edition (seen above) will also be available for $49.99/€49.99/£44.99, and comes with an art book, soundtrack CD, two limited edition enamel pins, a numbered collector’s certificate and art card, plus an outer sleeve featuring alternate box art.
In Aragami, you play as an undead assassin with the power to control shadows, whether it's teleporting between them to avoid combat or summoning weapons and creatures from the dark to take down enemies.
The Nightfall expansion included in the Switch version is a 4-chapter prequel that is said to fill in important gaps in the main game’s narrative. It introduces two new playable characters and new shadow powers, and can be played in either single-player or in cross-platform online co-op.
Aragami: Shadow Edition arrives 22 February on Nintendo Switch, and is available now on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Hound Picked Games and developer Causal Bit Games have confirmed a delay for the Switch version of Battle Princess Madelyn, which released last week on Xbox One and PC.
“Unfortunately, the delay for Switch (and PS4 (NA)) was unavoidable, but these extra weeks have resulted in superb feedback from some top gaming media, and experts, which means some new and exciting additions to the game will occur over the next month via patches updated through all the stores,” said Causal Bit Games’ Creative Director, Christopher Obritsch.
“Due to the length of time it takes to get patches through the different publishers, we hope that the Switch version will be out very soon. We will ensure that all of the bug fixes and changes we took in from feedback are in the game on launch. Thank you for your understanding.”
While the Switch version remains unavailable for the time being, PlayStation 4 users in North America can look forward to the launch of Battle Princess Madelyn later this month, on 20 December. There’s no word yet on European release date, however.
Battle Princess Madelyn is an old-school arcade action game inspired by classic titles such as Ghouls N’ Ghosts and Wonder Boy 3: The Dragon’s Trap. Notable features include hand-drawn pixel art and a unique story penned by a professional children’s author.
Battle Princess Madelyn is available now on Xbox One and PC.
