Welcome to the retro future, where the technology is amazing but always breaks and misfires. Black Future '88 is a brutal cyberpunk roguelike where players must climb a procedural tower to kill its insane owner. Collect massively overpowered buffs and 100+ weapons to combat overwhelming enemies, and eventually die... horribly. You must balance your own curse stat and choose what you should leave behind as the tower will strengthen itself with items left on the ground. Original soundtrack by Tremor Low.


- A continuous procedural world built from 6 unique environments

- 8 unlockable characters

- 100+ weapons

- 25 unique buffs

- Online and local co-op

- Deathmatch

- Full controller support

- Achievements and Steam trading cards

- Original analog synth soundtrack

- Hard: It's a tower that hates you

- Infinite looping (NG+, NG++, ...)

- Secrets

- Branching paths and alternate 'win' conditions

- Goth-concert grade fog machines and lighting

After carefully weighing my options against the unknown Steam Direct, I decided the best thing for the future of my game would be to push it up to Greenlight and try to get it through before the program shuts down.

Take a look, and please upvote if you like it.

Thank you!

Even the sound engineering from the whitehouse sucks. The current live feed is phasey and scooped. How do you fuck up a vocal mic? SAD.
