Black Future '88

Entrant 2019



Welcome to the future of 1988! Black Future '88 is a drug fueled and synthed out rock opera rogue-like where 1-2 players only have 18 minutes to climb and destroy a procedural tower before their heart explodes. Everything matters, but you're going to die anyways.

While you're having a rogue-like experience, so is the tower, Skymelt. Items left on the ground will be consumed and the tower will upgrade, forcing you to adapt or try to force your way through. Many weapons have horrific side effects, like shooting your money, or even using your time to live as it's ammo source.

Black Future '88 is an in-your-face and unsubtle experience, the unholy lovechild of Nuclear Throne, Prince Music Videos and RoboCop2.
