MagNets, the TIGA award-nominated debut title from indie studio Total Monkery, was released on Steam last week with a 10% launch discount.

The product of an inter-generational family development team, MagNets blends 90’s console charm with 80’s arcade relentlessness and a unique gameplay mechanic. Described by the developers as ‘an arena shoot-em-up with no guns’, players must battle through 20 single-player story levels using their electromagnetic nets to circle rampaging robots and recycle their scrap. The game also includes time, score and scrap challenges and local multiplayer, where two players can test their MagNeting skills in battle.


Total Monkery’s Technical Director, Richard, says, “We were thrilled when we found we’d been Greenlit. We’ve been out on Itch.io, Desura, and others for a month or so, but it’s obviously very exciting to be able to bring our indie game to the number one digital distribution platform.”
