We Explore Space in the Co-Op Rogue Like, Pulsar: Lost Colony

Last night we took to the stars in a co-op sci-fi game called Pulsar: Lost Colony. With a crew of five at your disposal it's your job to explore the galaxy, repel invaders, and destroy hostile ships. What makes this game unique is that every player has a job to run the ship. The Captain organizes the crew, sets the goals, and upgrades the ship. The science officer makes sure the shields are properly tuned to defend and fights off incoming computer viruses. The engineer works to balance the ship's power while the pilot steers and maneuvers the vessel. Finally, the weapons specialist makes sure your crew is properly defended.

Pulsar Features Cooperative Space Exploration with a Side of Permadeath

Aside from voxel sandbox games, Flappy Bird clones and "gritty" first person shooters with muscular male protagonists, the new "it" genre everybody's talking about is the cooperative starship simulator. Ok, maybe it's not as mainstream as we'd like, but the idea is certainly catching on. Pulsar: Lost Colony is the latest addition to the budding sub-genre, and the developers have some great ideas at a rolling boil.
