Curved Space comes to most consoles and PC
You can't play it on Switch just yet, but that will be possible starting in another two weeks.
Maximum Games has made its newest title, a "rapid-fire schmup," available on most platforms as of today. The game is available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and PC right now, with a Switch version due to follow on July 13.
Developed by indie outfit Only By Midnight, Curved Space is "an intense arcade-style twin-stick shooter that takes the classic formula and plunges it into the weirdest reaches of space." In this particular case, "weirdest" means spiders, along with quite rigid gravity that causes projectile shots to hug the terrain rather than simply flying into the wild blue--er, black--yonder.
"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," reads today's press release. "Simple to learn as you fight your way through the branching story-driven campaign, but tough to master as you chase the glory of the leaderboards."
Only By Midnight is owned by a husband and wife, Andrew Czarnietzki and Jen Laface. Czarnietzki serves as Designer, Programmer, and Artist, with 15 years of experience in the industry, while Jen Laface comes from a strong background in storytelling, having worked as Publisher's Assistant at respected sci-fi and fantasy magazine, On-Spec.
Curved Space is available to purchase today, with an MSRP of $19.99 USD. You can find out more about the game at the official Curved Space site, if you're so inclined.
