Naked & Arcade: Cosmochoria

By John Walker on March 28th, 2014 at 8:00 am.

Lots of things are improved when done in the nude. Not least replanting the galaxy with life after a cataclysmic event sees all the tiny planets dying. Which is, impressively, the concept behind Cosmochoria. You play a little naked astronaut, seeding planets (ew, no, not like that) while fending off angry aliens. You can play the alpha right now. And the Kickstarter has just gone live.

Why are you naked? I have no idea. Why is the game’s character naked? Equally clueless. Have a look:

The game launched a Kickstarter today, and is looking for votes on Greenlight right now. And you can already play an alpha version embedded in its website. It’s a wee bit buggy, but you can get a good idea.

    The question, Mr Walker, is why are YOU naked?

    Watch out for shrinkage, yo.

      Hiya!

      You’ve got some annoying unclickables lying about, you know: the “demo” image on KS is not a link, and in the game, the “full screen” thing seems to do nothing…

      Anyway, cool stuff here, especially the art!

      Edit: Oh, just realized you might not be the dev, but just some guy who likes to talk about shrinkage.

    Dylan Rhymes ref spotted. :-)

    It should be a Elder God replanting the galaxy, the size representation would be more acceptable than a giant naked astronaut.

    I’m naked because it’s bedtime, not that it’s any of your business, Walker.

    • Wisq says:

      I’m naked because I just got out of the shower and apparently “check the latest RPS news” is of a higher priority than “get dressed and do some actual work”.

    Does wearing a space helmet and a jetpack still count as naked? How much are you allowed to wear before you stop being naked?

    • 3030 says:

      In my opinion, if your nips + twig and berries are flapping in the wind, you’re pretty much naked. Helmet + Jetpack, still naked. Thats just me though. I feel naked without my phone..
