StarCrossed is a local co-op game heavily inspired by classic "Magical Girl" media. Our mission is to provide an experience that focuses on the importance of collaboration and teamwork, showcased by the two-player cooperative gameplay.

This cooperative take on the classic shoot 'em up genre is played by utilizing the positioning of the characters to take out enemies with a projectile that bounces back and forth between the players. Timing and teamwork are key!

We're currently in development, with an expected release date of Summer 2017. StarCrossed is being built for PC, Mac, and Linux!

The Story

The game will feature both a survival mode and a story mode. We don't want to give away too many secrets just yet! Stay tuned for updates!

How To Play

Each player is able to fly around freely. During the game, a star will automatically bounce between the two players. This star acts as your weapon, and will destroy enemies on collision. Completing levels and progressing through the game will require you to dodge enemies and projectiles while destroying them with the star!
