Tetrapulse Certainly Is Strange And Pretty And Co-op

Tetrapulse looks like it might be rather wonderful. Developers The Amiable explain that it’s going to be “a two to four player, single screen co-op game where you and your friends join forces to battle a swarm of alien robo-bugs using the only weapon you have left: your own life-force. Every shot of your laser drains your health as you work together to protect the Heartstone, an ancient battery that powers you and your friends.” The announcement trailer (below) makes it look like a great deal of fun, and I notice that they’re currently asking for just $15k on Kickstarter to get it finished. Seems like they should get that, eh?

    I noticed this the other day and thought it looked neat. $15k seems a bit low (especially give the portion software licenses takes up). I suspect it might be as much an advertisement as an attempt to get funding.

    If anyone’s interested, we’ve been trying to start a Kickstarter Ketchup on the forums.

    There are two mechanics I dislike immensely in video games: having your health and offensive power meter being the same (i.e. those arcade games where a special move costs life) and escort missions. This game looks to be proud of the fact that it’s combined those two.

    I hate being overly critical of small companies, but I just can’t see the appeal. :(
