Equip and survive


Climb an always evolving procedural tower and fight for survival through a constant onslaught of death by fire, lasers, and slashes.

Play through a unique take on a retro cyberpunk dystopia, and survive through 5 distinct zones each with their own challenges.

Play as one of 5 characters, each with their own unique buffs- and weaknesses.

Test your reflexes with a friend in couch co-op.

Bring a gun and laser sword to a fire fight by arming yourself with a selection of the 50 unique weapons available in the game, each with their own unique effects.

The only way to survive when everything, including your own heart, is trying to kill you is to carefully boost or curse yourself by strategically choosing- and combining from 30 distinct buffs and curses.

Black Future ‘88
is an intriguing,
challenging but
also supremely fun
and rewarding game.
