Indie Game Spotlight: Blacksea Odyssey

Written by: Blacksea Odyssey
Overview
Blacksea Odyssey is a top-down shoot ’em up about ripping colossal space creatures to shreds with a harpoon and rune-infused spears. Play as the cybernetic Old Man who has entered the deadliest competition in the galaxy – the Blacksea Odyssey! Four of the bravest huntsman compete in capturing bounties for the largest space creatures that exist! Only the sole champion of the competition is awarded the honor of encountering the Titan of the Stars! Legend says no one has ever lived to tell a tale about the Titan. Will the Old Man be the first?
Inspiration
Blacksea Odyssey‘s core concept drew inspiration from the classic arcade game Asteroids and the novels Moby Dick and The Old Man and the Sea. However, it has since evolved to draw from numerous other sources: imagine, if you will, Shadow of the Colossus’s massively scaled bosses, Geometry Wars extremely crisp and fluid control scheme, Path of Exile‘s deep RPG-like rune system, and Binding of Isaac‘s insane replayability.
Current Status
We have an Alpha Demo available on our website: blackseaodyssey.com. We plan to release Early Access on Steam in late February followed by the PC launch in May and a console launch in June.
