Plant A Tree With A Naked Astronaut In Cosmochoria

We’re not sure how child-friendly a game with a naked astronaut as its main character really is, but developer Nate Schmold believes that his space-spanning, seed-planting shoot-em-up Kickstarter Cosmochoria has something on its hands worth flying around the galaxy for. The game is currently planned for PC, with stretch goals for the Wii U, PlayStation 4 and Vita.

Players are an astronaut who’s trying to revive a dying galaxy by replanting seeds onto dying planets. Sounds good, and doing so successfully with sprouted plants revitalizes planets and fills you with their undying love and affection and even more seeds to go plant elsewhere. Players then get to jet across the galaxy to another planet they can stumble across to repeat the process, slowly bringing life back.

 

Things are never quite that simple however, and as time goes on and more planets return to life, an alien race begins to actively assault you in their bid to stop the terraforming acts. Interestingly, it appears that each planet will also have a planetary layer with gravitational pull effects you could utilize in an otherwise free-jetting game.

As the game progresses and more planets are saved, bosses will appear to try and stifle your actions. But here’s the thing: You don’t have to fight them.You can simply fly off and away and try to escape contact. In fact, fighting the aliens might be a bad idea, since Cosmochoria is also a permadeath game. No do-overs, you start back from the beginning. Fortunately, it’s not all rogue-like doom and gloom once you’re dead, as players get to keep their upgrades and crystals for the next journey. As you get further and further into the game with each playthrough, more of the story will begin to unfold.

 

If the game makes it to $150,000 Canadian dollars, it’ll get a Wii U port, while a $300,000 stretch goal unlocks the PlayStation 4 and Vita as stretch titles. With about a month to go and already halfway to its goal, Cosmochoria is looking likely to make it to its minimum funding goals already. You can back it here.
