Curve Games and Triangle Studios delay indie shooter From Space

From Space, an upcoming indie shooter that supports up to four-player co-op gameplay, has officially been delayed without a new release date. The game was originally slated for September 29th, 2022. A new announcement today promises to reveal a new launch date sometime next week:

According to the statement, the delay applies to all platforms, and there is no clear reason other than the usual. Since the trailers and updates thus far have been fairly clean, it’s likely that the devs simply need to polish a few things up and don’t have any severe functional issues.

As such, the new release date probably won’t be pushed too far. Judging by comparable indies, the game can likely be expected either sometime in Winter or very early 2023. It’s really a shame, since the game looks simple but cute, despite the generic mechanics and well-worn alien invasion premise.

Besides, From Space was published by Curve Games, who has reliably supported countless hidden gems. Most notably, they published Human Fall Flat, which remains one of the most interesting, hilarious and creative ragdoll games in any genre. They also published The Ascent, another co-op shooter that blew up last year and has maintained almost unanimous praise.

Ideally, Curve Games must have found something similarly neat in From Space. Either way, this will be a big step for the devs Triangle Studios. They only have a couple of games in their library, and AereA was met with some pretty rough reviews.

So far, From Space does look promising, and you can check out some gameplay for yourself with this official trailer from Summer of Gaming 2022:

The co-op experience seems crucial to enjoy this one, since it feels more like a silly party game, but there’s nothing wrong with that. You can read more about From Space, Curve Games and other upcoming indies by following our news section!
