Bloober Team developed this game as a maze-based action game with some strategic elements. They were inspired by Spy vs. Spy and Bomberman to develop this game. Basement Crawl is a 2.5D game with a lot of dynamic characters mechanics and game modes. Basement crawl will feature 4 player console multiplayer as well as 8 player online multiplayer and even a mixture of both. There will be 4 available characters at the start each with their own unique skills and perks.
Bloober Team said they designed Basement Crawl to eliminate the luck factor of the game; they made Basement Crawl a very skill based game. It is designed for hardcore players instead of casual gamers.
