Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime is a frantic 1- or 2-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-friends, and avoid a cosmic demise. Deep space is a dangerous place, but you don’t have to face it alone!
You will assume the role of a member of the League Of Very Empathetic Rescue Spacenauts (also known as the Lovers). Disaster has befallen the galaxy since the Ardor Reactor, the greatest source of energy in all the universe, was destroyed. The forces of Anti-Love are spreading throughout our spacetime, kidnapping innocent creatures and infecting constellations along the way. You must recover the four pieces of the Ardor Reactor to restore peace to the universe.
Starting a new Save File will automatically lead to the tutorial level, so you can learn to use your ship. You’ll need to make good use of all your ship’s control stations -- Turrets, Shield, Engine, Map, and Yamato Cannon -- to achieve victory.
As you progress through the constellation campaigns, your goal in every level is to locate and rescue space-friends who are trapped in enemy prisons. If you rescue 5 friends in a level, they will open an exit so you can progress to the next area. At the end of each constellation campaign, you must do battle with a physical manifestation of the constellation in order to obtain a piece of the Ardor Reactor.
In your travels, you will come across powerful gems that can be used to upgrade your control stations. Experiment with them to learn their effects!
