PQube announces International Space Banana for Steam
Who are you? Who are we? Who are any of us, if not bananas floating in space?
PQube, the international publisher known for its interesting selection of indie titles, chose April 1 as the day to unveil International Space Banana, a game it says is "probably coming to Steam at some point." We're about 60% sure this isn't all some elaborate April Fool's Day prank.
Developed by Cool Scooter Software, International Space Banana's claim to fame is that it perfectly captures the reality of bananas living in space, something few other games have attempted. Just check out this list of features from the press release:
The game stars an aerospace scientist who has been turned into a literal banana, albeit one with the ability to move about dangerous environments and encounter "painfully accurate physics simulations."
"All you really have to do is generate enough applied force to worm your way through a maze of literal junk," explains the press release. "Don't even worry about drag because you know, it's space, so that's one less mountain to climb, just get yourself to the control station. It really could not be simpler."
We didn't even add the bolded text at the end. That was included right in the press release.
So what do you think? Is this all some holiday ruse, designed to make fools of us all, or is International Space Banana well and truly on its way? A bit of research shows the game does seem to be available on Steam already for a mere $4.49 on sale, but so is a soundtrack priced at $199.99 and that doesn't seem quite right. It's all so very confusing!
