Outbuddies is a deeply crafted retro-inspired Metroidvania for Windows-PC. Enter Bahlam, an otherworldly sunken city of the Old Gods, located deep in the South Pacific ocean. Marine biologist John and his live support droid Buddy must combine their unique skills to overcome Bahlam’s hostile creatures, uncover its secrets and find their way home. Outbuddies can be played single or in local Co-Op.

You can dig about 20 minutes into the game and beat the first mini-boss Blackthorn.

The game starts with a tutorial section, so you won´t have to read any instructions in advance! Game difficulty can be adjusted in the start screen menu, standard setting is “casual”.
System requirements: For running the game in 60 FPS you should at least have a dual core CPU 2,4 GHz plus. The game will auto adjust to 30 FPS, if your machine can´t handle it. Windows 7 or higher only. The game runs windowed fullscreen and does a pixel perfect scaling of all pixel art to your native desktop resolution.
Outbuddies supports most controllers and can also be played with a keyboard, but I highly recommend the Xbox 360 USB gamepad!
Enter local Co-Op: Call the in game pause menu and choose the top symbol. You´ll then be asked to assign input devices for each character. If you go for local Co-Op I recommend to choose the “distant” viewpoint option in the display settings.
Thank you very much for playing ^o^ !!
