Get The Game
Curved Space takes the classic twin-stick shooter formula and plunges it into the weirdest reaches of space. Battle giant enemy spiders across curved landscapes where your bullets hug the terrain while the horizon drops sharply out of sight.
Inspired by arcade classics, players will have to hunt for weapon power-ups and upgrades while dodging enemy fire, blasting interdimensional bugs, and wrangling some enormous boss monsters. Simple to learn as you fight your way through the branching story-driven campaign, but tough to master as you chase high scores in Survival mode.
Precision controls for mouse/keyboard and controller alike. Accessible but demanding.
Unique and Innovative Gameplay: Mapping 2D gameplay to any 3D surface is unheard of for most shooters. Climb ceilings, flip over to the other side of the environment, and experience breathtaking vistas in space with a unique gameplay experience.
Ride the Synthwave: Get in the zone with a high-energy soundtrack courtesy of FiXT Neon, featuring artists like Scandroid, 3Force, and Fury Weekend.
Out-of-this-world (literally) effects: Behold bizarre laser spiders that stab you with their faces and the glittering energy barrages that you’ll use to demolish them. Curving energy beams wrap around the level, missiles swarm your foes as you navigate impossible glowing superstructures.
Adapt & Exterminate
-A massive arsenal of high-tech weaponry. Equip two weapons at a time out of a pool of over twenty, from machineguns to beam lasers, exotic particle sprays and magnetic melee blades.
-Powerful ship abilities: Even before you go hunting for new guns, you can lasso spiders with your energy lash, dance around them with dash-boosters and just obliterate them all with Overdrive mode when you’re tired of playing with your prey.
-Customize your ship with your personal cocktail of ability upgrades through the campaign, or as rewards for clearing waves in survival mode – better than fuzzy dice!
Three Ways To Play
-Story: Step into the void and guide a multidimensionally jinxed energy-miner/spider-hunter through a multiverse of misfortune. Battle monstrous cosmic monsters, and choose which time-stream to follow the story down as reality splinters around you.
-Survival: Think you know your way around an energy tether? Prove it. Pick an arena and hang on to the bitter end against randomly generated and increasingly deadly waves of alien arachnids, customizing your ship as you fight.
-Daily Run: What’s best in life? To stand tall on the leaderboards and hear the lamentations of your peers. Tackle a fixed survival match every day, the same waves and challenges face every player. With lady luck on vacation, skill alone will carry you to fame and glory.
