*** Update: The Kickstarter for Boom Company has now started – you can find it here ***
If you’re looking for a space shooter with some roguelite twists and a nifty control scheme, Burt’s Games’ Boom Company is definitely for you. And the game is about to launch its Kickstarter campaign.
The game is set in the distant future, in a hypercapitalist star cluster where money and lasers speak. Boom Company has double stick controls that set it apart from other space shooters, so you can fly in all directions and shoot at the same time. There are also sprint and 180-turn moves to make sure you are always one step ahead of your enemies.
Add in a range of fascinating characters and some beautiful graphics and you have a winner. Here’s a trailer that shows what to expect from the game when it hits its Kickstarter goals.
Supporters of the game can choose from many different levels and there are some great rewards available. These range from stationery sets to the possibility of designing your own level. There are exclusive t-shirts, art compendiums, and more, depending on how much you donate to the project.
You can even get exclusive access to a closed beta that lets you get your hands on the game before anyone else, or say thank you in the game credits. The levels start at HK $ 10, which converts to about $ 1.28.
The game has been in development for a year and has caused quite a stir. It took second place in the PC and console category at the Global Games Pitch 2021.
