Cobalt: A New Third-Party Indie Game Being Developed By Mojang Studios, The Creators Of Minecraft

Mojang, the developers behind the ridiculously successful Minecraft announced that they're going to be working with Oxeye Game Studios on an indie title called Cobalt.

"We wanted to find studios who have our philosophy of developing games, which is staying close to the community and treating it as a service," said Mojang in a statement. "Today we're announcing our first game developed by a 3rd party: Cobalt by Oxeye Game Studios."

Cobalt follows the story of Agent Cobalt as he tries to learn about the Space Exploration Foundation's lost colonization ship The Seed at planet X9CSEC5.5B-blue, Trunkopia. Apparently the ship has disappeared after its subspace jump, and Cobalt has to figure out what happened. I think.

Check after the break for a teaser trailer that Oxeye Games released for Cobalt.

The developers describe Cobalt as an action game that you can play cooperatively with friends or against your enemies in a death match, loot match, race match, or Capture the Plug Match. Cobalt's gameplay is described as a lot of, "running, jumping, rolling, shooting, throwing, dancing, hacking, rolling, flying, sliding, climbing, looting, deflecting, racing, piñata-ing, passing, scoring... and even more rolling!" said the developers.

Cobalt is scheduled for a Q4 2011 release and is being developed for Windows, Mac and Linux, with the Windows version coming out first. The game will come with a map editor, and will be moddable.

The first time we'll get to check out Cobalt wil be at Mojang's booth at PAX Prime later this month. As we get more info on this interesting title we'll be sure to let you know all the details.
