Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime looks thrilling, romantic

"Jumpman meets Asteroids meets Han saying 'Don't get cocky.'"

Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime has to be one of the coolest game titles I've heard in awhile and it looks like it's got the gameplay to match. Two characters - ostensibly lovers - must run around a tiny 2D space station manning turrets, lasers, shields, and thrusters in an effort to fend off nefarious aliens.

"In mish-mash terms you could describe it as Jumpman meets Asteroids meets Han saying 'Don't get cocky,'" said developer Asteroid Base.

"Death may be a given, but at least you don't have to face it alone," it added.

Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime is due on PC and Mac in 2013. Check out its chaotic, co-operative action in its debut trailer below.

Now the question remains, if they're lovers, why do they sleep in bunk beds?
