Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime Works Alone Too

By Mark Delaney, 2 years ago
Palahniuk once wrote in his book Invisible Monsters, "The one you love and the one who loves you are never, ever the same person." Perhaps you agree and have resigned to committing your heart to no one but your pet. If that's the case, you might find Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime especially relatable. Though the game is billed as a frantic couch co-op puzzle platformer, it still allows for you to go at it with no one to love but your cat or dog. This gameplay demo highlights how one needn't be the loneliest number as long as your +1 is a furry friend.

Depending on when you read this, Lovers might already be available for download, as it releases on the 9th. We've reached out to the developer Asteroid Base to ask if the game also allows for play with friends with benefits, ex-lovers, it's-complicateds, and/or baes. We'll update this story if we receive word.
