Hello worlds



Hey guys, Adam from Cosmocat here. I'm excited to announce our newest game: Cosmic Ray!

Cosmic Ray is a game about exploring space in search of hospitable planets for colonization. It's pretty easy to pick up--dare I say casual--and features fairly short rounds, so we think it's a good option for killing a few minutes.

Despite the simplicity we try to keep things challenging and interesting with permadeath, randomized galaxies, ship upgrades and alien artifacts to be found with each run.

We're hoping to launch next month. In the meantime, feel free to follow along with the progress on our devlog.

Last but not least, we have a Discord! Stop in and say hello, learn more about our previous games, and our upcoming closed beta for Cosmic Ray.

About This Game

Dateline: Earth, 1999. An unprovoked alien invasion is underway. You, a total badass, don't really appreciate it. You won't stand for it. You're downright outraged. You pack up some essentials--guns, cigars, whiskey--and head out into the night. Little do you know that tonight you will make history. This is: Operation Hardcore.

Operation Hardcore is an action-packed 2D side-scrolling shooter inspired by classic twitchy action games of yesteryear, but with modern touches and conveniences.

  • fight your way past enemies using a range of weapons
  • double-jump your way around obstacles and hazards
  • activate your traditional plasma-based shield to deflect enemy fire
  • drink some whiskey to slow time and increase damage (...at the expense of mental clarity)
  • strap on a jetpack and get airborne for some classic forced-scrolling challenges
  • collect coins to purchase items, weapons and upgrades between levels
  • meet or beat level par times to earn yourself a brag-worthy Badass Rank(™)
  • grab a friend for some friendly and/or competitive 2 player local co-op
