Twin Stick Shmup Mayhem
If you love blasting the hell out of everything, today’s news is for you. Curved Space, developed by Only By Midnight and published by Maximum Games, is out on nearly all consoles today. That includes the PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Series X|S, as well as PC. But fret not if you want to blast things on Switch. That version of the game will launch on July 13th instead.
Those that are intrigued should read the following key details:
Curved Space is an intense arcade-style twin-stick shooter that takes the classic formula and plunges it into the weirdest reaches of space. Battle cosmic space-invading spiders across curved landscapes where bullets hug the terrain while the horizon drops sharply out of sight.
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. 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.
It all sounds like raucous fun to me. If you want to see why Curved Space looks so good, please watch the trailer below. And feel free to pick the game up on everything but Nintendo Switch today. It’s pretty affordable at only $19.99.
