Fancy blasting your friends away with insane weapons as you slowly destroy the planet around you? Well look no further than Nova Nukers – the insane, local multiplayer shooter from Space Orange Studios. You can see the game in action in the trailer below:
Nova Nukers hits PCs next year, but is seeking your votes on Steam Greenlight first. Like what you’ve seen so far? You can vote for the game through this link.
“Up to 4-players can dish out destruction in Nova Nukers split-screen multiplayer combat. Choose from an array of characters and costumes to take out your decked-out pals in fashionable form.
Utilizing weapons from a bomb laying robot chicken to a “Sharkzooka,” Nova Nukers supplies the appropriate amount of craziness to your everyday weaponry and planned destruction.
Catching your opponent in Nova Nukers is integral to victory, and pulls on both players to use their dexterity and skill to outwit the other in a near-death duel. Elimination isn’t the end either, as players can enact revenge with orbital lasers to help add to the battle unfolding.
With a completely destructible playfield, players can use their environment to take down fellow combatants in more than a few ways. Unearth the planet’s molten core by blowing craters wide enough for a deadly pitfall or incinerate strategically placed defense mounds; Nova Nukers lets you fulfill your destructive dreams and constantly changes because of it!”
The game looks like great fun to me – I love the weapons and Mario Galaxy-esque environments. Here’s hoping it gets through the Greenlight process – don’t forget to vote for it if you want to see it on Steam!
