Outbuddies is a deeply crafted 16-bit style Metroidvania for Windows-PC and a story of teamwork and friendship between two very unlike heroes. It was our natural desire to integrate a local Co-Op option, so you can explore, enjoy and even speedrun this game together. Outbuddies´ story unfolds in Bahlam, a sunken city of the Old Gods, located deep in the South Pacific ocean. After a shipwreck, our main protagonist John, a marine biologist specialized in deep sea life forms, wakes up 36.000 feet under the sea. He´s severely wounded and unwillingly connected to a supernatural Buddy-unit, which can be controlled at will to manipulate his surroundings using various abilities like hacking, scanning, and telekinesis. On your journey home, you will be supported by a friendly tribe of mining creatures, the Wozan, who fear the Old Gods and strive to get back to the surface since they´ve been enslaved 5000 years ago.
