Is available on steam:

Forced is a one- to four-player co-op arcade action RPG with puzzle and tactical elements. You are cast as slaves in the toughest fantasy gladiator school of them all, condemned to fight to the death, all the while attempting to win your freedom.

  • 1-4 player campaign, carefully balanced for the number of players
  • Local and online co-op, it's easy to plugin controllers and play on one computer
  • A challenging Gladiator campaign with monstrous foes and tricky puzzles
  • Four Unique Character Classes, with very distinctive playstyles
  • Skill focused: all enemy attacks can be evaded, it's your job to figure out how!
  • The Spirit Mentor, an extra party member which players must control together to gain an upper hand over the enemy
  • Survival Arena Mode (more modes coming)
  • Mark Combat System. Apply marks to enemies with your basic attacks, to set them up for devastating special attacks from you or your allies.

Does this have a random dungeon generator? I'm pretty disappointed that NO console ARPG has one of those. That's the only reason I ever invested money in those games.

Right of the bat, no random dungeon generator. We doesn't really see ourselves as a dungeon crawler, and we want every map to be painstakingly designed and non-random, to allow for time trial competitions, like those in many racing games.

Yeah we've since pulled the demo, as we've included beta access in a Kickstarter Tier. We didn't want the people who supported the game for access, to feel that they were cheated, as there was a free version available on the net.
