Blacksea Odyssey Announced; Lets You Harpoon Ridiculous Space Beasts

There’s always room for more shoot ’em ups out there, especially when they look as awesome as Blacksea Odyssey. Today developer Team Blacksea Odyssey and Mastertronic announced a brand new title. Luckily, the game appears far more unique than the development studio’s name.

Players assume the role of a “cybernetic Old Man” who has joined the Blacksea Odyssey — a deadly galactic contest. Each of the four contests competing must wrangle giant space creatures. Played from a top down perspective, players must rocket through space and hunt enemies (and likely die a lot in the process).

Blacksea Odyssey is planned for PC and console release in Spring 2016.
