Inspired by Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, the upcoming Cloud Miners looks like it could be a fun blend of genres to play in some local co-op sessions.

"You and your shipmates have been attacked and your ship destroyed! A Cloud Corp ship was nearby and able to save the crew at the last minute, and now you are indebted to Cloud Corp. In order to buy a new ship, and your freedom back, you must toil away mining asteroids and planets of their valuable resources, running on suspicious missions for Cloud Corp and entertaining spectators in the C.L.A.A.S.H. Coliseum battle arena. Your lives now belong to Cloud Corp, and it's up to you to take your power back!"

Feature Highlight:

  • Playable with up to 4 people
  • Choose from 4 different characters with different abilities and tools
  • Use the crew's ship and venture out on foot to complete missions
  • Procedurally generated levels for varying gameplay

If you're after another co-op game, this could be it. We're huge fans of Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, as it's ridiculously fun and while this is inspired by it for the ship, overall the gameplay sounds and looks quite different so I'm thoroughly curious to give it a go. Speaking to the developer on Steam, they confirmed that not only will it see Linux support but it's actually developed on Linux too. A release should be due sometime later this year.
