“Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime reminds me why I love video games.” 10/10

– Destructoid

Explore a neon galaxy in your very own battleship in Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, a thrilling 1- or 2-player couch co-op adventure. Only through teamwork can you triumph over the evil forces of Anti-Love, rescue kidnapped space-bunnies, and avoid a vacuumy demise. Deep space is a dangerous place, but you don’t have to face it alone!


1 or 2 Player Co-op Gameplay

2 players, or 1 player plus a loyal AI space-pet, need to work together to man the different battle stations, dashing back and forth between weapons, shields and engines. Both players fill important roles at all times, and nobody gets left behind.

Simple Controls, Deep Challenge

Controlling your spacenaut is so simple that anyone can jump in quickly, but getting both players to work together like a well-oiled machine, battling a galaxy of evil robots and constellations — that’s the tricky part.

Upgradeable Ships

Find and combine powerful space-gems to customize your ship’s load-out. Each gem provides different abilities, letting you learn the right tools for every situation.

New Experience Every Time

Randomized level layouts mean that both players will be exploring fresh areas every time you play.

Frequently Asked

What platforms is it for?

Xbox One, Steam (PC/Mac/Linux), and also via the Humble Widget (where you can pre-order it now).

How many players can play?

There’s a 2-player local co-op mode, and a 1-player mode where you also command a loyal AI space-pet!

Does it have network support?

No. We’re a small team with one full-time programmer, and we had to choose our battles. Rather than offer a half-baked online experience, we chose to focus on delivering the most awesome 1-player or 2-player couch co-op game we could.

Do I need a gamepad to play on PC?

We recommend gamepads, but the game is fully playable with keyboard. You can even play with two players crowded around one keyboard (assuming your hardware supports lots of simultaneous keypresses).

Do we need to be lovers to play it?

Uhhh... no... This game is certified fully compatible with roommates, siblings, parents, children, friends (and lovers too!).

Does it support other languages?

We currently support English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Japanese, Korean, Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese.
