Update: StarCrossed is now fully funded on Kickstarter. Thank you for you help!

This year at PixelPop Festival in St Louis, MO – we had the pleasure of playing a multitude of incredible Indie Games. One of our absolute favorites of the show was a game called StarCrossed – a Cooperative arcade action game with wonderful mechanics and colorful space girls!

StarCrossed has you and a friend on either side of the screen throwing a projectile back and forth and taking out enemies as you go. The projectile will track your movements, so you have a chance to throw it directly at an enemy, or have it rebound back to you in the path of an enemy and utilize both methods to help clear the screen. The more in sync you become with your partner, the faster things get, and you can built up crazy, screen clearing ultimate abilities. It’s an absolute blast to play!

So check out the video below and if it looks like fun to you, consider hopping over to the official Kickstarter page to donate and help them reach their dream!

Games and developer teams like this are the whole reason we do what we do. Please consider supporting this and other indie developers to create unique and wonderful new games to keep our favorite entertainment medium fresh and exciting for years to come.

What is Bombfest?

From the Devs: BOMBFEST is a local-multiplayer, physics-based party game where players battle with bombs to be the last toy standing. It’s a lot like sumo with explosives! Use bombs to blast away your foes, but be careful that you don’t get caught in a chain reaction of your own creation! Battle in different environments, and take advantage of destructible towers, cardboard traps, and speeding toy cars!

BOMBFEST features 2-button controls and simple mechanics that are quick to learn and fun to master. It doesn’t matter if you’re an expert gamer or a party game novice – anyone can pick-up and play BOMBFEST!

My Thoughts: Bombfest looks like a perfect co-op game for people of all ages. Whether you’re 5 or 75 it looks like a game anyone can pick up and play and have a blast. It harkens back to the days of the N64 where 4 friends would gather around a tiny tv and do anything to get an advantage. The developers were kind enough to give us a code for the game so we’ll hopefully have a better rundown of the gameplay for you shortly.

Bombfest is expected to launch on January 8th, 2019 on PC, Xbox One, Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch
