Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime v1.4.2 now available!

Hi everyone, we've released an update to Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime!

1.4.2 (2016-07-12)

  • Better handling of unrecognized controllers
  • Better support for the Steam Controller on Mac

About This Game

LOVERS IN A DANGEROUS SPACETIME is a frantic 1- to 4-player couch co-op action space shooter. Explore a colorful galaxy in a massive neon battleship that you control together by manning turrets, lasers, shields and thrusters. Only through teamwork can you triumph over the evil forces of Anti-Love, rescue kidnapped space-bunnies, and avoid a vacuumy demise. Deep space is a dangerous place, but you don’t have to face it alone!

LOCAL CO-OP GAMEPLAY
2 to 4 players (or 1 player plus a loyal AI space-pet) need to work together to man the different battle stations, dashing back and forth between weapons, shields and engines. All players fill important roles at all times, and nobody gets left behind.

UPGRADEABLE SHIPS
Find and combine powerful space-gems to customize your ship's load-out. Each gem provides different abilities, letting you learn the right tools for every situation.

A NEW EXPERIENCE EVERY TIME
Randomized level layouts mean that all players will be exploring fresh areas every time you play.

SIMPLE CONTROLS, DEEP CHALLENGE
Controlling your spacenaut is so simple that anyone can jump in quickly, but getting all players to work together like a well-oiled machine, battling a galaxy of evil robots and constellations — that’s the tricky part.

Grab your controllers and a couch and fly, bounce crash, shoot, shield and rescue your way through a cute but deadly universe.

The best, most tense, yet highly enjoyable & fun local co-op game I have ever played. True teamwork that feels like you're flying the USS Enterprise, if the USS Enterprise was a gumball with guns and evey station was controlled with a single button and a joystick. BRILLIANT!!!

Hellagreat couples game. 3-4 players rocks. Rescue bunnies. Blow stuff up... with love.

Highest possible recommendation. Buy it and have a blast.

Love it. Hopefully there will be more stages. Online coop and competition. Competitions like racing for the most rescued animals in one campaign. Or most points. Etc.

the freaking bunny-scientist can not be interrupted. i hated it and then the game for being inaccessible and patronizing. dont like games in that spirit. i want to be able to jump right into the action.

also i want it to be multiplayer over the internet. i dont have any loved ones at home i can play together with.

but it is a good game in other respects.

BUY IT… it's worth every cent! This game is extraordinarily fun… but you should play it with four players in the same room if you truly want to enjoy all its flavour! It's truly a family (or good friends) game… and contrariwise to other games in which each one pulls his own way, this one demands absolute cooperation (and coordination) if the groups is to survive. I strongly recommend it, especially for parents to play it with their kids… but also for anyonw who wants to have fun with his friends. The Single Player + Space Pet is OK, as well as two-player games… but the real fun starts with three or, better yet, four players, all screaming and running about the ship to man the different stations! My congratulations to the developers… and just ONE suggestion: allow exchanging stones (for instance: two of one kind for one of another) between levels (or, if possible, within the levels).

I've seen a preview of this game years ago. When I found out it's finally coming out I couldn't wait. I bought it on release without thinking.
Oh man, did this game DELIVER.
I love coop games and this is pretty much the pinnacle of what I've seen. It is currently my No. 1 favourite coop game of all time. It dethroned Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light and that's quite an achivement in my book.
Most games have tacked-on coop modes that many times just don't work. This a true coop experience and everything is built around it. You can play solo but it's rather boring since you'll be flying the ship 90% of the time while an AI partner will do most of the more interesting stuff (like shooting !). I also didn't play 3 or 4-player coop so I can't tell how good that is. The core 2 player experience is insane though.
The game is so action packed you'll forget you had real-life stuff to do. Every level is a constant scramble to man the necessary stations. It's almost like there's not enough people on your ship, but that's what makes it so fun to pull off. You need to fly the ship, angle the shields and shoot 4 guns all at the same time and enemies just keep on coming.
There's a surprising amount of variation on subsystem upgrades (guns, shields etc.) and you can tweak your ship to fit your playstyle.
Levels are semi-randomized. You get the same opponents and similar obstacles but the layout changes. It's not the level of some other games but enough to keep the levels from becoming a chore to repeat if you fail.
Each campaing has a different theme and ends in a pretty cool and challenging boss fight. Each level also has a different twist on the theme.
There's 3 different ships (2 unlock later) plus the one you start with gets a few upgrated versions later on. One of the other ships is kind of weird and not everybody will be able to play it though. I don't wanna spoil here but is a little mind bending. Makes some people dizzy. I'd kind of like some more ships but it's not that big of a deal.

It is local coop only and many people complain about it. It's understandable and a valid point but I would like to add that I feel like this game would not be that fun if you weren't sitting next to your partner. Online coop is great - but it's not the same.
So if you have somebody to play with I'd HIGHLY RECOMMEND buying this. Worth every penny.

If you're looking for a unique local co-op experience, Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime may be what you're looking for:

With up to three friends (or alone with a remote controlled pet) you have to control the ship using multiple stations. The ship always has multiple weapon stations, an engine station, a shield station and one station for the Yamato cannon. Each station can be further enhanced with gems found during a run, which can change the way the station works entirely, adding to the experience.

The key lies within coordinating who uses which station at which time and which upgrades to put where, in order to safely travel through the universe, defeat enemies and rescue your "friends".

You can expect about 6-10h of pure co-op fun for one playthrough.

One of the best coop game I ever played. I played this game with four people and believe me it's chaotic. You can also play with keyboard + controller.

Great and highly recommended Couch Co-Op game for parties!

At first glance you might think this game might be difficult to play. But in reality the concept and controls are easy and very fluid. The only difficult/crazy part is how well you can coordinate with your fellow players in order to control each subsystem effectively. As it will have you constantly scrambling from system to system the whole time in order to maneuver the ship and successful defend it from enemies. The great selection of difficulties feel to be tuned fairly well to suit whatever experience you wish to engage with your friends. May it be a more relaxed sit back experience to one that will have you on the edge of your seat screaming at each other. The choice is yours.

The animation and art style is very well done for cinematics and gameplay. And honestly I don't think the trailers do a good job at really justifying how well it all comes together. So go watch a gameplay video on youtube for a better idea then what you see here.

Highly recommended for gaming groups that like to get together in the same room. As it will be worth every cent once you get into it.

Or if you are the sad lonely type. At least they programmed a alright AI buddy to assist. Even if its not the greatest at times. Though if you plan to play this by yourself. You might be a bit disappointed.
