Live in the Game, an alumni indie game studio, is especially excited about the recent release of their first published title “Lunarsea©,” which began development at the Global Game Jam in January 2017.

Lunarsea© is a mobile/PC game aiding Cthulhu on his quest to steal the moon; Wry Reveries™, a point-and-click adventure game following the famous Edgar Allan Poe in a fictional series; and Model Weapons Expert™, where you follow a PTSD ex-soldier in a PC and VR world that is coming later in development.

See a highlight here from RealOtakuGamer.com.

Cthulhu is on the run after stealing the moon! Use the moon to influence the waves to avoid missiles and jagged rocks down below and other obstacles to your survival.

Enjoy two different gameplay modes as you make your way through the increasingly challenging levels that test your abilities.

The main campaign will follow the adventure of Cthulhu who stole the moon due to his need for the power to control waves on his own planet in his own galaxy and finds himself on Earth while he attempts to escape from NASA and other enemies in his path.

The endless runner mode will allow players to control Cthulhu as they challenge personal records for distance for themselves and others playing the game and this also facilitates harvesting coins for upgrades for use in the game.

Live in the Game, LLC™ indie game studio was founded in 2015 at UAT by alumnus Benjamin Pope, who Majored in Game Design and also studied in Game Art and Programming areas. Most members of the studio are UAT alumni who have worked on the majority of our games. Please see the team portion of this blog for a list of members.

Our team is spread across the country consisting of a small core team supported by contractors and/or interns. Live in the Game™ Studio is also connected to game devs at Denver University due to the owner relocating to his hometown.

Over two years after its founding, Live in the Game™ has made milestones. They have become publishers on Google, Apple and Steam with a couple studio copyrights. Lunarsea received accolades from DreamHack Denver 2017 for Best Casual Game in the Indie Playground.
