Description

Cosmos Defenders is a 2D fast-paced revolving shooter about a group of unconventional heroes using the power of nature to stop chaotic aliens from taking over the universe. Cooperate with other guardians, protect the galaxy from the wicked, restore peace and make it prevail… or not?

History


The idea of Cosmos Defenders was born in Ludum Dare 38, Ludum Dare is a game jam in which developers can work remotely as individuals or in teams. The theme of the event was "A Small World" and at the time the project was called "SORLD".

SORLD's core mechanics and the general idea of the game were based on the premise of including cooperation and sending a simple but powerful message about noticing what people around us (neighbors, cities, countries, etc) are struggling with and try to cooperate to overcome challenges together.

We thought that this idead would be a perfect fit for the Nintendo Switch, the classic multiplayer game that people play with their friends or family at the couch of their living room.

Using comments and feedback from the jam plus careful planning and brainstorming, the game evolved from a small prototype to a 2D fast-paced shooter filled with unique enemies, remarkable galaxies, powerups, special abilities, bosses and secrets to discover.

Features

  • Multiplayer strategic cooperation, involved in a chaotic fast-paced universe
  • 4 different galaxies with 3 planets to explore and enjoy in story mode
  • Powerups, special abilities that will help you protect the universe
  • 3 different mini-bosses and one big boss per galaxy to challenge your skills
  • Millions of unique challenges every time you play with your friends in free battle/cooperation mode
  • Secret galaxies and planets with special prizes and rewards
