StarCrossed, an action-arcade game with a magical girl aesthetic and a cooperative twist has now officially released for Linux shortly after the Windows version became available last month.

It plays something a little like a classic arcade shooter, except your only weapon is a bright star that you need to bounce between you and your partner to keep the momentum going. A very fun and sweet twist, something like a ridiculously action-packed co-op pong with bright and inviting visuals.

Developed by Contigo Games with publishing from Whitethorn Digital, this is another crowdfunding success from Kickstarter. The team managed to get $12,270 in funding back in October of 2018.
