Two early Awakened trailers plus 15 minutes of Hero

Is it morbid fascination with the deceased Midway and its not-quite-swansong Hero that makes us so interested in Awakened? Not, it’s that is sounds bloody brilliant. Two trailers have turned up, in their rough-and-ready pre-alpha state, and you may gaze on them through the jump.

Both of these trailers come courtesy of Destructoid, and as the game isn’t even at the point of securing a publisher, should in no way be taken as indicative of final quality. But you get the idea.

Underneath that, you’ll find a 15-minute walkthrough of the canned Hero.
