Release Day!



Astervoid 2000 has been released on Steam!

We'd like to thank everyone for their support while we launched this game. Also a big thanks for those that have already covered the game by writting a review, streaming on Twitch, or posting a Let's Play to YouTube.

This game is our love letter to couch multiplayer gaming. It's the way we enjoy games the most, sitting side by side screaming at the screen and each other.

Enjoy!
Chuck & Justin

Happy Tuesday! Build 2055 is go

So what's new?

- New songs
- Achievements!
- A few new environments

- Bots no longer kill each other
- Bots don't get as close to each other so they're harder to take down
- When a player takes the lead in versus, there's a new sound for that
- Team score are aggregated together, and all players on a team will indicate when they've taken the lead
- New music when a game is over, different tunes for both Versus and Survival
- Megasplosives all have a consistent radius / effect, no more randomly wondering how big an explosion will be
- Sparks fly off ships that have entered into critical mode
- Every ship you destroy in Versus is shown at the end on the score screen
- Updated gamepad & keyboard instructions, and you can now disable them entirely from Settings

- Bugfix: Sometimes bots would stop spawning in Survival mode. Not anymore! You can now play on forever (and ever)
- Bugfix: If a player's shield was down when they mélee, don't reactive it right away when they exit melee

And a bunch of other goodies. Happy space brawlin' !

Reviews

“When playing Astervoid 2000 I actually drew the comparison to Smash Bros.’ multiplayer, in that it starts to feel like a battle for positioning and trying to get your opponent in ‘the sweet spot’ where you can force them to lose a stock.”
8/10 – Link-Cable

“Astervoid 2000 is a finely crafted game that has quite a bit of quality work put into it.”
83/100 – Play Some Video Games

“At first glance, I thought Astervoid 2000 was the game Asteroid with a co-op deathmatch mode. You can use this as your elevator pitch to win your friends over to get them to frag with you, but Astervoid has much more depth than it first appears.”
Geeks WorldWide

About This Game

Astervoid 2000 is a 1 to 4 player local-multiplayer​ space brawler, combining classic arcade action with modern gameplay.

We've re-envisioned the 1979 hit Asteroids, but as a couch-multiplayer deathmatch game. Set your nav for the asteroid fields and your phasers to kill! Your goal is to blast your opponents into space rubble. Astervoid 2000 doesn't feature any power-ups, so it all comes down to your piloting skill. Explosive, indestructible, and projectile-ricocheting icy asteroids will slam against your ship, or can be weaponized against or by your opponents. Show them who's best!

(Perfect support for gamepads as well as keyboard and mouse.)

Original Soundtrack is also available on Bandcamp.

FEATURES:


Survival Mode
Fight against waves of AI controlled ships. The faster you destroy enemy ships the higher your score. Earn your place on our leaderboard!

Versus Mode
2 to 4 players compete head to head against one another in a free-for-all or team deathmatch. This is the way the game was meant to be played. Show your friends who the best pilot is by mastering the game's tight controls and turning them into space dust.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:


"Jousting in space! ... I could see this game being like massive, just like heaps of people playin' it." - Gamerholics Anonymous

"It's a tight game ... There's games that have just bad, sloppy controls. Then there's other games that have slightly better controls. And then there's this games like this that have extremely tight controls, where we can dash anytime we want instead of waiting on a cooldown and thus having this game be 100% skill based." -- Scythe Plays

"A very well put together game. If you guys have a weekend with downtime, with your friends or roommates and you guys are looking for something new to chill out on, this would be a really sweet drinking game. I could definitely see that." - Real Game Media

"Many of the sounds, which are not so retrospective, remind me of films like Tron Legancy and catch the futuristic charm." -- GameContrast.de (rough translation from German)
