Space Party: Space Captain

My game studio, Hot Trouble, is working on a local co-op video game called Space Party. It's inspired by Artemis, Space Team, FTL, and Puzzle Pirates. In this game you and your friends all take on different roles crewing a spaceship. Each role has its own minigame that you have to play to do your job and keep the spaceship running.

We're releasing each of the minigames as a standalone game as part of the initiative. The first one is out now and it's called Space Captain. You pilot a ship around different sectors of the galaxy looking for an Earth-like planet to colonize. Watch out for the other planets though, as they're inhabited by hostile aliens that will chase you down and destroy your ship. You don't have any weapons, so your only option is to run.
