Yes friends, the dream of sharks with frikkin’ lasers on their heads is now a reality. At least, as far as videogames it is.
The game (which was just kickstarted and signed by Reverb publishing) is a 2D platform/action affair, but with a healthy bit of sandbox too. Edge actually allows for level customization out there in the great unknown through terraforming, which just sounds like it has all kinds of potential.
Having recently reached successful funding on Kickstarter and set in the vast reaches of outer space, Edge of Spaceinvites players to explore a dynamic open-world sandbox, building, creating, molding, and working to survive in the deepest, darkest, weirdest, and possibly most interesting part of the known universe.
So what’s it about? Where do space sharks with lasers fit in? Well…
As one of the few, proud, and lucky men and women of ArkCo, players must go where no one has wanted to go or was technically “meant” to go. After an indeterminate time in cryo-sleep, they awake to find themselves in a lonely, Bermuda Triangle-like area in the depths of space. So get ready to explore, scavenge, build, survive, and fight rocket-powered, cybernetically-enhanced laser sharks.
Weird? You bet! But that’s not necessarily a bad thing. I love a good side-scroller and quirky isn’t exactly something I’d call ‘commonplace’ in gaming. In other Edge of Space news, the game has also been submitted for the ever trendy Steam Greenlight. So if you’d like to support the game, go ahead and make with the clicking.
