Lichtspeer is an ancient space-germanic word. Unfortunately, since it's a long dead language the proper pronunciation is unknown, so anyway you decide to say Lichtspeer will be fine. Seriously, don't worry about it.

Lichtspeer is a brand new action arcade game set in a mythical space world of AD 3069. It involves ancient germanoid warriors throwing lightspears (it's like a lightsaber, except it's a spear) at an army of bizarre creatures including: elegant zombies, hipster ice giants, deadly penguin vikings and more. The goal of Lichtspeer is to appease the Lichtgods by fighting with style, while travelling across long forgotten lands, clashing with powerful bosses and expanding your powers all to the sound of classical electro-war-march music.

Die a thousand deaths, become a Lichtspeer meister.

Upon release Lichtspeer will be the most complex and realistic Lichtspeer throwing simulator on the market.


  • Stylish, colorful vector based 2D visuals running at 1080p 60FPS.
  • Multiple lands each with it's own distinctive art style.
  • Boss fights - all of them crazy in their own way.
  • Tons of out-of-this world enemies and challenges.
  • A wide arsenal o upgradable powers.
  • High scores, achievements, combos and more!
  • New game+ and a Rage Quit Mode - for people who like to sweat while gaming.
  • Intergalactic space music by Marcin Sonnenberg.


We always enjoyed fast, action packed arcade games with simple but no simplistic design and instant gratification. We also loved the oldschool 2D aesthetics that were more of a inspiration to let your imagination wander, than realistic representations. So naturally, for our first game we decided to merge the challenge and wonder of old arcade games with modern day sensibilities and art. Also we wanted for it to have some sick music. That's how we started to work on a game about a space warrior throwing a German spear made of light.

Lichtspeer is fighting in the Pixel Awards finals this weekend. The competition is really though, a BAFTA winner, an IGF winner - keep your fingers crossed!
