A nifty-looking game has been shared on our forums, entitled Lastronaut. This endless runner will have you trying to make it as far as possible while blasting aliens, trying to reach the last rocket ship leaving Earth. Darn sentient machines ruined everything again! The game's promising vibrant visuals with colorful effects, a number of weapons to unlock and use, and explosions by the bucketful. Check out the game in motion:

The game will be free, and that means totally free with no ads nor IAP in the game. It's being created as a "love-letter to gaming" by its developers. One of those developers is Darrin Henein, who by day works as the Lead Mobile Designer at Firefox, so at least he has a day job. I look forward to the people who will try to complain about a free game that is consciously trying to not make any money off of them, of course. The release is expected to be soon, aiming for next week on March 5th if everything works out.

    Sweet! These guys have my support if and when they release a premium game in the future..

    • Jetjet

      Me too !

    • darrinhenein

      Thanks! That was the idea... Game #1 is a thank-you, but we'll likely develop premium games going forward. Appreciate the support though πŸ™‚

  • Goggles789

    How dare they not charge anything at all?!

    This looks really fun, though. Would pay for it if the opportunity arose.

  • Rawk GWJ

    I demand that they add a coin doubler for $5.99!

    I like loveletters.

    Isn't that mass effect-y sounding music from another game? I know I've heard it somewhere before, and recently, if not in the 3rd mass effect itself.

    • CalinR

      Yea, that mass effect-y sounding music is deff from the 3rd one's official trailer...that's...not an admirable choice since I'm pretty sure that music's not public domain yet...

      • darrinhenein

        Good ear! That sample is only used in the trailer... All the in-game music was composed by me specifically for Lastronaut πŸ™‚

  • Devok

    So how will they make money?

  • louisa

    Very generous of the dev and I will most certainly support any premium game he offers us. It's a cool looking game, too and that makes it all the sweeter. Thanks.

    • darrinhenein

      Appreciate that Louisa! Keep your eyes on touch arcade and you won't miss anything we put out in the future πŸ™‚

  • baldeagle86

    Looks really cool! Excited for next week already now

  • wovenskin

    If I cant buy magic crystals to make timers speed up, I'm not interested.

    • darrinhenein

      Well, completely free games aren't for everyone I guess πŸ˜‰

  • trazer

    Can there at least be timers that only let you play once every 13.23 hours? I don't know how to handle a free game that is not kicking me in the balls trying to force me to pay somehow! This will be weird to play, what will my poor bruised nads think? They better not get used to this....

    I love this game, unfortunately my fingers cover the game and making the game harder.
