Description
Release date: 2015
Laser Lasso BALL
Beings from across the galaxy battle in the deadliest sport in the universe in this Local Multiplayer alien Deathsport.


Somewhere... there is the planet Nux. All sentient species are eventually drawn to Nux... to compete in the deadliest sport in the universe. LASER LASSO BALL

STORY
Nux exists as a drifting rogue planet. All sentient species feel an innate draw to it when it is near. It is part of what calls beings to travel the stars. Participating in the arena is a privilege, yet it is open to everyone. The world is dark and empty, but in the arena death becomes an act of creation and color. It is believed that each death in the arena births a new star in the sky.



FEATURES
  • Laser fast competetive local multiplayer
  • A living, breathing crowd full of hopes and dreams that react to the players.
  • Badass soundtrack by SLOTHFELLA.[slothfella.bandcamp.com]
  • Death as an act of creation.

Gameplay
When a player enters the game they are assigned a roster of 13 alien fighters from the crowd.  Fighters lasso themselves to the Pivot and leap into the arena, one after the other.  Each fighter is an individual, with a name and a history.  And when they die, they're lost to the stars.



The BALL
The game is played by hitting the BALL back and forth along a beam.  Each time the BALL is hit its speed increases into infinity.  Being hit by the BALL at any time is death, even when it's on the opponent's beam.

The Shield
When your opponent has the BALL on their beam, you control the Shield.  The Shield can be used to deflect the BALL.  Your distance from the Pivot controls the size of the Shield.  Dashing in grows the shield.  Dashing out shrinks it.

Charging and Stalling
Dashing in and attacking will Charge the BALL.  This increases the BALL's speed and causes damage to the Shield.

Dashing Out and attacking will Stall the BALL.  This reduces the BALL's speed and breaks up the pace.  While Stalled, the player can continually attack the BALL to Charge it, making it more deadly.  Or perform a Burst which breaks the BALL off of the beam and sends it flying at the opponent!

Weapons
Certain actions will cause random Weapons to spawn at the Pivot.  Dash to the center and hit the weapon to fire at your opponent!

Secrets and Sacrificies
The crowd wants to see a good match and may find ways to trigger the infamous DANGER MODE.

Player this game today at INDIE GAME CON, Very fun! Liked meeting the creator! One thing I would suggest is Online Multiplayer, would seem very interesting.

I'm pretty sure I wouldn't play it, but it looks too cool to deny others being able to play it ... a yes vote.
