British-based developer Inertia Game Studios has revealed their debut console title, space party game Catastronauts
. Before anyone gets any ideas, that's a portmanteau of catastrophe and astronauts, not Cat Astronauts. Apologies to any feline fans out there who got their hopes up at taking some cats into space.
The game is a fast-paced multiplayer game that will task its players with keeping their spaceship alive against various obstacles, similar to Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime
, but instead with a top-down view and art style more reminiscent of the equally chaotic Overcooked
. You can see what that looks like in the game's announcement trailer below.
is currently scheduled to launch later this year, and will be playable at EGX Rezzed in London next weekend.
