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.

Black Future '88 is live on Greenlight

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

Yeah, but have you considered how well a meat-jam company called "HamJamThankYouMa'am" would do? The product comes up with itself.

What if penguins were poisonous but we didn't know because they've never bitten anyone because they would totally never do that.
