@Game Development Championship, Thanks for the link, we'll check it out.

As for solo-play, we do have toggleable AI bots in the demo, which we'll improve on further for the final game. Though, you can never beat the reactions you get from your friends when you make their head's explode!

Love the artstyle, it's cute! However, what kind of single-player playability will you have? It's really important, even in a couch co-op/versus game.

We are running the Game Development World Championship and would like to see you participate. It's good for your visibility and won't cost you a penny.

You can check it out at .

Good luck with the development!

Hey there, @Auros @Veskaida and @Izark

Thank you for taking the time to comment on our page. We really appreciate your feedback, we are going to make some definite improvements to the page as we think we have not communicated some aspects of the game enough.
A variety of game play is something we're currently working towards with new interactable objects and gamemodes. We really want to solidify that KYA is a quick and casual game so will be priced accordingly.
However this will not stop us from making more in depth content, improving the combat and art.
Please stay tuned for more and thanks again for taking the time to comment.

this looks amazing, up!

I like the cartoon a lot!

The animations in the Description are excellent, and the game looks very good graphically. I like the character customization!

My biggest gripe with the project though, is the lack of gameplay depth. It looks very simple mechanically, and I'm not seeing a lot of variety of content. It feels very repeditive ATM.

Uh..... I'm all for violence, but that's just too limited for my taste. You're limited to smashing into other astronauts and random debris, from what I can see from the video. It looks like a basic physics simulation with completely random violence.
