Criminals Within: A Third-Person Co-Op Action-Adventure From New Zealand [VIDEO]

Space Rock Games has secretly developed this project for a year.


The studio employs gaming industry veterans who previously worked on Fable, Path of Exile, Black & White 2, and Chivalry II. The managing director of Space Rock Games, Zsombor Pirok, supervises the development of the Unreal Engine 5-powered, third-person, co-op-only action-adventure title. “We are excited to finally share the game we’ve been working on secretly for the past 12 months. Thanks to our wonderful team and amazing investors—Hillfarrance and NZGCP—we get to create the ultimate co-op adventure we’d love to play ourselves,” Pirok wrote in the press release.

The game’s Steam page reads, “Join forces with a friend and embark on an epic journey through a medieval fantasy land inhabited by powerful, de-evolved dragons. Unravel the mystery behind “The Wither,” a deadly disease spreading throughout the kingdom, threatening its existence. Take on the role of Helena, a formidable royal guard with unmatched strength, and the roguish burglar Jarel reluctantly roped into this quest. Explore treacherous caves and cursed jungles, seeking the lost prince Felix and working to end the ongoing conflict.

Experience asymmetric cooperative multiplayer, where each player plays a unique role in the adventure. Engage in skill-based combat, where strategic thinking and quick reflexes are the keys to victory. Take on epic boss battles, facing off against formidable foes that will test your mettle. Work together to solve cooperative puzzles, utilizing each character’s strengths to overcome challenges. Enjoy Disney-style comedy that will keep you laughing and engaged throughout your journey. Customize your character’s appearance with a variety of player cosmetics.”

Criminals Within will be released first on PC (Steam), with console versions to follow. The release date and target platforms beyond PC are not yet transparent. We will hear about these details later.
