DigiPen USA students David Scamehorn and Alexander Baard are preparing to launch Super Space ____, "a couch co-op arcade shooter about competition, cooperation, communication and the democracy of physics."
Named as a finalist title in this year's IndieCade, Super Space ____ bills itself as "a loud and wild pickup and play party game" in which two players pilot an oddly-shaped spacecraft and shoot incoming asteroids throughout a series of randomized waves. The twist: each shot produces recoil that propels the ship, and players must carefully coordinate in order to avoid asteroids and collect power-ups. It looks fun, in a friendship-straining sort of way!
Super Space ____ will be released for Windows this winter.
