Description
Release date: Available now
WE ARE DOOMED is a twin-stick shooter where you zap polygon baddies with an absurdly overpowered laserbeam.

Dive head-first into the action with reckless ambition, charge the SUPERBEAM, and zap everything out of existence in an instant. Chase high scores or just enjoy the beautiful explosion of geometry, colour and light.

  • Pure arcade action. No cutscenes, storylines, or lengthy tutorials.

  • An overpowered laserbeam weapon, and the more ridiculous SUPERBEAM.

  • Waves mode: 30 waves that range from chill to hyper-intense.

  • Endless mode: An endless barrage of baddies. How many zones can you survive?

  • Quick to start, and quick to restart for "just one more" game.

  • A vibrant world of neon colours, bold shapes, and glitching geometry.

  • A beautiful, chill, and occasionally glitchy soundscape.




EXCITING FUTURE PLANS

WE ARE DOOMED is making its way to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in April 2015. I'd love for it to be on Steam at the same time.

Steam gets me leaderboards and achievements, both of which make arcade-style games like this one oh-so-much-more fun. Also, if possible (and I don't see why it wouldn't be), Steam keys for everyone who has already bought the game on Humble or itch.io.


Present-Day Status

WE ARE DOOMED is available today, in a v1.0 form that doesn't quite include all the features listed above. All outstanding features will be included in a free update soon after the console release.

Humble Store[www.humblebundle.com]
itch io[mobeenfikree.itch.io]

The excellent soundtrack is available on Bandcamp[robbyduguay.bandcamp.com]

One of the best arena shooters ever made

Your own laser – which is more like a flamethrowers than a laser – elicited so much joy in me that I was rendered speechless for the first few levels

A perfectly-paced arcade challenge that imprints its own unique style

Friends on Greenlight

Death Ray Manta by Rob Fearon: unapologetically colourful, loud and just plain daft. Videogame with pop song feelings.

Leave Home and qrth-phyl by hermitgames: A pair of abstract, glowy, atmospheric and beautiful videogames.
