- 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

Welcome to the future of 1988! Black Future '88 is an extremely juicey and visceral synthpunk platformer where 1-2 players climb a cursed tower to kill it's insane owner. You must move fast, because you only have 18 minutes before your heart explodes. It's an in-your-face and unsubtle experience, the unholy lovechild of Nuclear Throne, Prince Music Videos and RoboCop2. The game features explosion-based platforming, innovative co-op gameplay and an original all-analog synth soundtrack. BF'88 is still in development, and is targeting a mid 2018 release.

I decided to push the game up to greenlight before the program shuts down.
