Catronauts

Catronauts is a couch co-op action game for 1-4 players about spaceships, and cats!

Your ultimate goal is to lead the cats and colonize a new homeworld planet. But you are not alone. The evil cosmo-dogs will do everything to achieve it before the cats. You must collaborate with your friends to maneuver the mothership through space!

Players progress from avoiding stationary obstructions, to dodging moving obstructions, to fighting off malevolent Cosmopup spacecraft. As threats grow more numerous and deadly, players attain new tools to fight them. Player’s spaceships acquire new defensive abilities such gain the ability to push away objects or shield themselves from laser fire.

As players progress, they will collect tech points which can be spent to unlock upgrades and new abilities, allowing players to customize gameplay to match their play style.
