ABOUT THE GAME
Cashtronauts is a local multiplayer space/combat trading game. Coming Spring 2014 to PC, Mac, Linux and OUYA. Built in Unity.
We've launched our Kickstarter, and our playable alpha demo is available for PC on itch.io! You can also download the demo to your OUYA.
Each round takes place in a randomly-generated solar system arena where players rush to collect cash. Money can be earned through a variety of means: mining, scavenging, piracy and more. Between each round, players use their money to bid on a limited supply of powerups, upgrades and traps. At the end of 3 (or more) rounds, the player with the most cash left wins!
Stay tuned for more updates, and please share your feedback and suggestions!
Cashtronauts is a "space capitalist" game for one to four players, available now as a free alpha on PC, Mac, Linux and OUYA!
It's been a while since our last update, so we've got a lot to say!
ALPHA UPDATE 0.03 RELEASED!
In this udpate we've fixed a bug that was happening to player 4's controller in a four-player game, decreased round time, and we've changed how the screen is split in multiplayer games to make it easier to see and navigate. The update is already live on our itch.io page and on the OUYA store.
This week we got our biggest press wins yet, most notable being an article on Rock Paper Shotgun and a spot on the local CBC show "Our Montreal"! How'd we get featured on the CBC? I don't really know, to be honest! Seems like they do a regular series of "local Kickstarter of the week" and they found ours. I've been a huge fan of the CBC my whole life, so needless to say this was super flattering and exciting.
LIVE CASHTRONAUTS TOURNAMENT AT FOONZO
Live in Montreal and wanna play Cashtronauts on a big screen in a sweet gaming-themed cocktail bar? Then come on down to Foonzo on Feb 20th for the big Cashtronauts tournament! It'll be a blast, we've already ordered some fun prizes and turnout already looks good :) Check out the Facebook event for details.
@SpaceBearDev Well if I'm going to feel bad either way...

@SpaceBearDev I guess you're right. It's something I'm considering but it still makes me feel icky for some reason, like I'd be using them

Is it ethical to dedicate a % of your revenue to a charity, expecting the word-of-mouth to give you more sales and revenue overall?

@xNECKx Seriously, I really like what I've seen of your doc so far. It felt wrong to watch it at lunch of Netflix so I'm saving it for home

Ever watch a movie and think "I should really be on drugs for this" and save it for later? That's "Jodorowski's Dune" T.co
