StarCrossed is heavily inspired by classic "Magical Girl" media. Our mission is to provide an experience that focuses on collaboration and teamwork. The game is designed with 2 players in mind, and will test both players' skills as they work together.
This cooperative take on the classic shoot 'em up genre forces the players to carefully position themselves and take out enemies with a projectile that bounces back and forth between the players. Timing and teamwork are key!
Each player is able to fly around freely as a star automatically bounces between the two players. This star acts as your weapon, vanquishing enemies on collision. Completing levels and progressing through the game will require you to dodge enemies and projectiles while destroying them with the star!
By timing your button presses, you can "StarBoost" as your star bounces off your character. This increases its size and speed, and can be used to charge your Ultimate. Each character has a unique Ultimate which you can activate for a massive attack!
The game will feature both a Story Mode and an Arcade Mode!
The Nova Galaxy is an empire of unified peoples, physically pulled and held together through time and space with the power of the Harmony Crystal. Though it is constantly protected by the royal family, in past times of crisis the Harmony Crystal has anointed five heroes to defend it from harm and thus keep the galaxy unified. StarCrossed is the story of a new time of crisis and the new heroes chosen to fight.
In Arcade Mode, it's an all-out race for points against increasing waves of enemies. The longer you play, the harder it'll get, so it's up to you and your partner to play your hearts out and reach for the stars. Your scores will be saved for easy viewing, and even be visible on a Global Leaderboard!
StarCrossed is being developed by Contigo Games, a small indie team dedicated to creating multiplayer games and experiences to bring people together.
