It's been a wet and windy day here, so I blew the dust off my copy of Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime to share with the family and it's the single most bit of fun we've had all together with a PC game before.
It's an older game now, seeing as it release back in 2015 but don't let that put you off. There's a serious amount of fun to be had in this absolute gem of a game.
We got so insanely into it, that I never thought I would be shouting "GET THE BUNNIES" or "GET TO THE HEART" and things like that, while maniacally laughing as we utterly failed to pilot a spaceship together.
Here's a little cut of some of the madness:
We did have an issue with multi-screen support, although that was easy enough to get sorted in the games settings. Surprisingly, adding in an extra gamepad once you're already going didn't even cause a fuss (some games total crap out on that). We simply went back to the menu, added them in and off we went once again.
All of us were simply animated, constantly laughing at our own failure and pushing each other on. It's a real test of communication, but certainly in a fun way as there wasn't a single time any of us got annoyed at each other. That's a reason why it's so good, even screwing up is pretty funny for all of you. The gameplay is incredibly varied too, since a good 90% of the time you're on the move to the various systems inside the ship, as one of you (hopefully) shouts orders that will keep you alive.
Absolutely recommending this to play with friends, family and younger kids too—brilliant. Back when I briefly wrote about it in 2015, my son was far too young to understand any of it, but now it's happily going to be a game we regularly play together.
