Local multi-player gaming is something of a lost art these days. Asteroid Base is trying to change that with Death Star simulator Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime. Let's take a look at the release trailer, shall we?
Two players, or one player with an AI-controlled pet, pilot a fully-operational—yet seemingly under-staffed—battleship through space. The only way to attack the forces of Anti-Love and rescue the space bunnies (what?) is by scurrying around the ship to get to the controls of various weapons and defensive mechanisms. For players to succeed in this mission, the game requires teamwork.
Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime is available for Windows, Linux, Mac and Xbox One. The system requirements are pretty light, calling for a Core 2 Duo, 2GB of memory, and a DirectX 9-capable video card with 256MB of RAM. Asteroid Base recommends playing with a pair of gamepads. Lovers looks to be a fun couch co-op experience for ruining relationships with friends and family. The game is available on Steam and GOG, and it'll set you back $13.49 with a 10% discount until September 16.
