It Came From Space and Ate Our Brains is a twin-stick arcade shooter coming to PS4 in early 2020. Join up to three others in a beautifully stylized world overrun with snarling, pink, brain-hungry aliens.
Growing up in the late 80’s and 90’s, the favorite weekend pastime of my brothers and I was playing video games. Keep in mind that this was a time before high-speed internet, before 65” flat screens and before wireless controllers even. This meant we used to take turns or play at the same time, but always sitting right next to each other. Our friends came over to play games, and we even took our consoles with us when we went to visit family. Even now, my brothers and I share fond memories of beating difficult levels together, improving lap times, or finally saving the princess.
As time went on, I had a blast playing early online games like Quake and Counter Strike. The best memories from those times were of garage (or attic) LAN-parties at my friends’ houses. During college, we would invite people over to play games before our nights out. Party games, dancing games, fighting games, something for everybody, even those who always said they “didn’t play any games, really.” Those were usually the ones shouting the loudest by the end of each session.
Fast-forward to some fifteen years later. I’ve been running a game development company for the better part of a decade now and am the father of three wonderful kids. When we design and build our games, we aim to re-create that experience of many years ago — sitting side-by-side with your siblings, friends, or kids, enjoying great games.
This co-op experience is at the core of It Came From Space and Ate Our Brains. Make your way through six campaign missions, then challenge your friends to Survival, where you’ll collaborate while battling each other for the highest scores. Choose and upgrade your favorite weapon each round to make sure you’re ready for that final huge wave of aliens.
It Came From Space and Ate Our Brains is a true couch co-op experience that can be enjoyed by everyone and will be available on PS4 early 2020.
