Announcing Bashtronaut

Announcing Bashtronaut

Hello Spacewalkers! You may be wondering, “What’s with the new opening greeting?” Let us explain. You know how you work really hard on something for so long, but just can’t shake the itch to work on something else? That’s sort of what we’ve been feeling lately, and we’ve decided to just give in.
First off, we’re happy to report that work on the Project Nyana vertical slice is going well. Our second full-scale production continues to excite the entire team, but development cycles are long and tough roads. So, we’ve decided to develop and release a bite-sized game, something that has excited all of us at the studio.
Many of us on the team grew up during the retro, 8-bit era of games, and so we thought we’d try making a title with some of that DNA and spirit. What we’ve come up with is Bashtronaut, a top-down, arena-based hack-and-bash experience where you play as an employee of a “pest control” megacorp that is hired to “deal with” hostile forces that invade planets, colonies, commercial space shuttles, and asteroid belts.
Once Bashtronaut took hold of us, we knew we just had to make it. Production on the project is proceeding swiftly, and it is our sincere hope to be able to ship this silly little game that has captivated our creativity this year.
We’re working on perfecting our game loop and ensuring that the gameplay is fun and feels satisfying. We’re weaving in narrative and other storytelling elements into the world. We’re producing earworm music tracks. It’s all very invigorating to us!
As always, we plan on sharing our early gameplay concepts with members of our Discord, so please use the link below to join our growing community and be among the first to experience Bashtronaut. We hope to share more details and first-looks of this project in the coming weeks!
