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.
@stephBoisvert Funny though how the community-created content in TF2, DOTA2, CS:GO was always ok with everyone though.

@stephBoisvert No, but people instantly stole/copied and started selling free ones, only 25% rev for modders, no quality control, etc

@stephBoisvert Me too, I think it'll happen one day. The mistake here was just doing it so suddenly to an existing MOD community.

Obama's going to be the most interesting ex-President. "Fuck, you guys have no idea how shitty it was in there."

At the start of each campaign, each player rolls 5 characters. They must all hate each other and live in different lands. #GameOfThronesRPG

Following the TV series rule, you can only do one thing per session that would require CGI. #GameOfThronesRPG
