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.
