Really enjoying this singleplayer/2-player co-op roguelite FPS at the moment. It's in Early Access on Steam (no console plans as yet).

The movement and shooting feels a lot like Quake or Unreal. Enemies hit pretty hard from the very first level, so you have to do a fair bit of projectile dodging to survive. The XP orbs they drop disappear after a very short time and they heal back some of your lost health if you pick them up quickly enough, so you're always being actively encouraged to press forward into combat rather than playing things slow from the back. This means things get ridiculously hectic in the later levels.

 

You start the game with a double jump and there's a lot of verticality to the levels, which opens up even more when you unlock a certain item. There's a reasonable selection of guns, classes, and unlockable items which encourage a good variety of play styles and builds. There are branching paths unlocked via key pickups, and the outlines of a story told through comicbook-style cutscenes between levels. It also has stuff hidden behind waterfalls, which as we all know is the mark of a Good Video Game.

 

Highly recommend it, it's a lot of fun. Having sunk untold hours into Gunfire Reborn with a mate, I imagine this is going to be our next time sink. 

 

I found this decent video review delivered in a refreshingly non-obnoxious way which gives a bit more detail:
