Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime From Independent Developer Asteroid Base to Blast Onto Xbox One and Steam September 9
Toronto – August 18, 2015 – Commencing countdown, engines on, as the clock for liftoff officially starts ticking for the launch of independent video game developer Asteroid Base’s action, 1-2 player co-op game Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime. Lovers will launch on Xbox One via the ID@Xbox self-publishing program, and also on Steam (Windows PC and Mac) on September 9. Releasing for $14.99, Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime features frantic action that forces friends, family members and loved ones to work together while switching back-and-forth between manning the spaceship’s controls, weapons and defenses.
In Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime players will use an array of weapons to battle dastardly robots and monstrous creatures, while avoiding galactic forces of nature to rescue kidnapped space bunnies from a galactic-vacuumy demise. Don’t be fooled by the colorful universe, Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime features difficult gameplay that will challenge any player’s skills. Lovers will be available for pre-order on the game’s website and on Xbox One starting August 27.
“With Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime we had a goal to give gamers a true co-op experience where each person would always be involved in the action,” said Jamie Tucker, Co-Founder of Asteroid Base. “We believe the game’s fast-paced action and frenetic switching between the ship’s various controls creates not only a frantically fun environment, but also ensures players never have to wait on their companion in order to stay busy. That said, players still to need to maintain healthy communication or risk the possibility of turning lovers into old flames.”
