About Current Stage of Development
This is game is currently in the Pre-Alpha stage. Lot's of things have yet to be implemented, and lots of mechanics are still being thought up and being added weekly. Because all the game's mechanics have yet to be implemented, it is local co-op for now. Online functionality will be added for the release.
Currently, mouse/keyboard and XBox 360 (xinput) controllers are supported. Playstation and bluetooth and other Direct Input controller support is coming in later updates.
Why did I make this game?
SpaceJammers was created to fill a gap that I feel exists within the top-down rogue-like genre. While I enjoyed "The Binding of Isaac" and similar games, I wanted to be able to play these cooperatively with friends. I also wanted a game with a more visceral feel as well as arcade elements from games I played in the 90's. However, I didn't want a game like Diablo which had involved inventory management and large maps. Team members often end up either waiting around for someone to sell their loot or just plain losing sight of one another in such a vast landscape; I want to keep the experience as clean and tight as possible, so no one is ever waiting around. The whole team should always be moving through the game at the same pace, regardless of experience level or skill.

I am very excited for this game and eagerly await the local co-op mode - there is a noticeable lack of it on the marketplace and I'm glad to see indie games keeping it alive.
If you need any help making your ModDB look awesome or to help with community affairs, don't be afraid to send me a message. :)
Thanks TrotsTwats! I'll def be needing help in the future with community management as I haven't done it before. I'll keep you in mind.
Also, I haven't announced here yet, but Space Jammers got Greenlit after about 10 days! Thanks everyone who voted!
I'm very busy on the next update and will be posting a new demo within the next week. Stay frosty everyone!
