Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime
It’s Valentines day, and that means you’ve just realized you forgot to make that fancy dinner reservation, or maybe after a few years together, you and your significant other would rather stay in and just spend time together doing the one thing that makes you happiest: playing video games. Surprisingly, video games can actually be a great choice for date night – it’s all about choosing the right game though!
The first game up is Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime. It’s all in the title: the game mixes excitement with a romantic theme. Without going into too much about trust-building exercises, this game does an amazing job of forcing partners to work together flying a spaceship through dangerous obstacles and enemies. It’s unlike any other co-op game because it matches its incredibly unique aesthetic with incredibly difficult co-op gameplay that isn’t very stressful. Best of all, the game actually supports up to four players, meaning this is also great for double dates!
The game forces you and your teammates to juggle turrets, engines, and shields to survive, well, dangerous space! The goal of the game, which is quite literally to “triumph over the evil forces of anti-love” according to the game’s Steam description, is very simplistic, and makes sure less time is spent working through plot, and more time is spent blowing up space aliens in the name of love!
Yeah, the whole concept around the game is really cheesy, but game has a ton of charm that ends up being much more funny than romantic, and having fun with a date is the best kind of date!
