Kickstarting Thursday with Cashtronauts!

Castronauts is pretty much a four player Asteroids, with great competitive and single player play! The aim of the game, as you may have guessed, is to get the most amount of money! You can do this by mining asteroids (AKA shooting them!) or by killing other players and stealing their money! It may seem simple, but it's got elements of strategy, and if you want to do well, you've gotta be a quick thinker!

 So far, there are two modes. Venture mode is single player or co-op, and the aim of the game is to get as far away from the start point as you can by earning money so you can pay the fee to warp to another galaxy! There are enemies in this mode though, so expect tension and frustration as you and your friends scramble together enough cash! The second mode is Skirmish, where you and up to four other friends battle it out to get the most cash as possible in three rounds, buying powerups and bettering your ship as you go along. Unfortunately, it will only be local multiplayer.

The game needs $10,000 Canadian dollars, and, at the time of writing, just under a quarter of it has been funded, and it's still got 20 days left! You only need to pay 10 Canadian Dollars (£5.53, $9.04) to get the full game, so it's pretty cheap! You can play the Skirmish alpha for free on PC, MAC, Linux and OUYA (Link on the Kickstarter page.). There are two stretch goals. $12000 Canadian Dollars nets the game support in Poland, Russia and Portugal, and $15000 gives the game online multiplayer, just what this great game needs!

Go and fund this great game at!
