But, there's a vast universe of games out there that offer similar gameplay mechanic as Lovers, let me delve into that...


25. Overcooked

If you had a blast playing Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, then you'll find Overcooked to be a fantastic follow-up. Both games centre around the idea of chaotic collaboration; coordinating with your friends to manage tasks under pressure. Just as you and your friends raced around a pink spaceship to man lasers, shields, and thrusters in Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, in Overcooked you'll find yourselves in the middle of a bustling kitchen, cooking up a storm to meet order deadlines. The genius in both games lies in the chaos of task management - both hilarious and hectic, as friends must communicate in a pandemonium of on-screen activity.

There are other similarities that make Overcooked an automatic choice if you enjoyed Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime. Both games feature vibrant, cartoonish prop designs and an equally bright, colourful world. Both games are co-op centric and have been expertly designed to provide a high level of entertainment, whether you are playing with just one partner or a group of friends. Besides, they both hold this stand-out charm with their unique yet quirky game concepts. From steering a spaceship with pals to frantically trying to put together a meal in bizarre kitchen settings, both games offer an unforgettable and delightful gaming experience.

Overcooked is available on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, typically priced around $17 USD.

24. Castle Crashers

If you had fun playing Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, you are sure to enjoy Castle Crashers. Much like Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, Castle Crashers is a jump-in/jump-out multiplayer game offering a similarly intense yet hilariously chaotic experience. Instead of navigating a spaceship, you and up to three friends can pick medieval knights, each with unique assail styles, and embark on epic quests battling monsters. Shared screen and multiplayer mechanics force players to work together just like controlling the ship's functions would have you do in Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, which adds an extra layer of collaboration and strategy.

Both games also bear a distinctive colorful and eye-pleasing art style that makes the gameplay even more enjoyable. Castle Crashers brings a similarly unconventional yet charming 2D aesthetic, leaning into cartoony over-the-top violence. The game's humor and charm are reminiscent of Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime's quirky and endearing characters, making for an immersive and fun co-op experience. Furthermore, both games have delightful soundtracks that enhance the action and keep the adrenaline pumping.

Castle Crashers is available on PC, PlayStation 3 & 4, Xbox 360 & One, and Nintendo Switch, typically priced around $15 USD.

23. Moon Hunters

Awesome, you enjoyed Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime! Well, Moon Hunters is definitely something that might be right up your alley. Like Lovers, it's a cooperative multiplayer game, and its pixel art aesthetic is quite reminiscent of the charming visuals that you find in Lovers. The gameplay, though different, also encourages teamwork and communication among players. In Moon Hunters, you explore an ancient world with your friends to piece together the folktales of your tribe, which is unique every playthrough. With each run, characters can grow in strength and personality, contributing to the tribe's mythology.

Moon Hunters also involves battling enemies, solving puzzles, and making decisions that impact the game story. It's not as frantic as Lovers in that you're not rushing around a spaceship to man different systems, but it's just as collaborative and engaging. Instead, you're working together in a shared-world environment, traversing various landscapes, battling mythical beasts, and growing as heroes through your actions and decisions. Even better, your choices and the way you relate to your friends and other non-player characters (NPCs) help shape your character's personality and reputation, which also impacts the story. I'll say it's like playing an ancient myth that's shaped by social dynamics and collaborative action.

Moon Hunters is available on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, typically priced around $15 USD.

22. Spaceteam

Spaceteam and Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime share a lot of common ground and anyone who enjoyed one is very likely to enjoy the other. Both games are built on the principle of cooperative gameplay, requiring players to work together to achieve a common goal. In Spaceteam, you'll find yourself uttering technical gibberish as you scramble to follow instructions while your ship hurtles through space. It's a shout-out-loud type of game, where everyone has a responsibility to keep the spaceship running. This premise is instantly reminiscent of Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, where players must operate different parts of their spaceship in real-time to navigate through dangerous territories.

Another similarity is the fun and chaotic atmosphere these games have. In Spaceteam, as your ship becomes more and more damaged, the instructions become more frantic, the pace intensifies, and players need to react quickly and communicate effectively. The chaotic gameplay experience is comparable to the frenzied coordination in Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime where you and your team must fend off alien attackers, save trapped space-bunnies, and steer your ship out of harm's way. Both games have a healthy mix of strategy, coordination, and split-second decision making which makes them enjoyable and uniquely challenging.

Spaceteam is available on iOS, Android, and can also be played via AirConsole on the web, typically priced around $6.99 USD.

21. Broforce

Well, let's dive right into the action-packed world of Broforce! This game is full of larger-than-life characters and explosive gameplay that will have fans of Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime feeling at home in no time. Just like how Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime requires strategic teamwork and coordination, Broforce also places a large emphasis on co-op gameplay - up to four players can join in on the chaos together! You'll be battling against enemy forces while navigating complex terrains, and just like LiadS, different players have different roles and abilities, making strategic coordination key to clearing difficult stages.

Another similarity between Broforce and Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime is the vibrant art style. Both games employ a playful and whimsical aesthetic that adds a layer of fun and charm to the hectic on-screen action. However, Broforce wraps this delightful art style in a retro, pixelated package for those who love a good blast from the past. Its humor and parody-packed gameplay loves playing with popular action movie tropes, making it a light-hearted, over-the-top experience which is much like the adorable absurdity of piloting a ridiculously powerful spaceship with your loved ones in LiadS.

Broforce is available on PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch, typically priced around $15 USD.

20. Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes

When it comes to the similarity in nature and mechanics between Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes and Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, one thing is paramount - cooperation. Both games thrive on the principle of teamwork and communication, making them great choices if you're looking for social, co-op gameplay. Just as you had to work with your partner to control your spaceship in Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes needs you to collaborate with your friends to defuse a bomb, but here's the twist - only one person can see the bomb, while the others have the defusal manual but no access to the visual cues. Therefore, clear communication between you and your partner becomes a matter of life and death.

Analogous to Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes delivers an exhilarating, fast-paced, and cooperative experience that achieves the unique balance between stressful and fun. The bomb ticking down in the background creates a sense of urgency similar to navigating through asteroid fields or avoiding deadly enemies in Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime. Moreover, both games feature adorable and visually pleasing aesthetics that make the tension-filled gameplay a paradoxically delightful experience. If you love the challenge of managing multiple tasks simultaneously and the test of friendship that Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime provided, then Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is definitely worth a try.

19. Monaco: What's Yours Is Mine

Monaco: What's Yours Is Mine is akin to Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime in a few key aspects. Just like in Lovers, the central mechanic in Monaco revolves around cooperative gameplay, offering a rich, shared experience as a team of 2-4 players. This time, instead of manning a spaceship, you control a band of thieves planning and executing different heists. Its visuals also adopt a vibrant color palette, creating a lively-game world.

The actual gameplay, though also centred on cooperation and collaboration, presents more complexity as it adds an extra layer of strategy and planning. Each player chooses from a variety of characters with unique abilities - like a locksmith who can pick locks faster and a lookout who can see enemies through walls. This selection creates a dynamic wherein you depend heavily on your team members in blending the right balance of skills and navigating through the diverse set of challenges and enemies. If you loved the cooperative aspects and the cartoonish art style of Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, you would definitely appreciate Monaco: What's Yours Is Mine.

18. Nidhogg

Just like Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, Nidhogg is another fun, fast-paced, cooperative game, with emphasis on timing, strategy, and teamwork. While Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime has you saving space bunnies through navigation and combat, Nidhogg pits you in a death race against a friend, like a tag team match but more intense. It's a constant tug of war where the joy comes from outsmarting your opponent, just like how you strategically manage your spaceship in Lovers.

Moreover, in a similar fashion to how Lovers use bright, neon aesthetics, Nidhogg does the same, but in its distinct, pixelated way. The vibrant, minimalist design adds to the high-speed intensity of the game. The soundtrack is also something that adds a level of excitement to the game, just like in Lovers. On top of that, Nidhogg also offers single-player and multiplayer options, which means you can enjoy the thrill of the game alone or with friends.

Just like Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, Jamestown is an intense and action-packed co-op game. As opposed to the cosmic setting of Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, Jamestown sends its players to battle aliens on 17th-century British Colonial Mars. Its graphics are more in line with classic shoot'em ups but where it mirrors Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime is in its cooperative multiplayer gameplay. Four players can band together, steer their ships, and battle extraterrestrial foes in high pressure and adrenaline-fueled warfare.

Another outstanding feature that bridges Jamestown and Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime is their robust and complex levels. Jamestown contains lush, diverse biomes similar to Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime's varied space environments. The frenzied navigation of ships also has a resemblance to Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime's cooperative piloting.

15. Terraria

You can play solo or invite friends to join the fun, thereby adding a depth of strategy and camaraderie to the gameplay. This aspect makes both games reminiscing of each other as they believe in enhancing the player's experience by adding the cooperative elements.

Secondly, in both games, customization is a key feature. In Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, you customize your spaceship with different weapons and shields to better equip it for various challenges.

And like Lovers, Spartan Assault is a game that can be as enjoyable to watch as it is to play, with a slick and colourful visual style that combines the familiar design of the Halo universe with an eye-catching, top-down perspective.

In terms of narrative, both games approach their storytelling with a touch of light-heartedness set against a backdrop of impending doom. Halo: Spartan Assault, while having the militaristic undertones of the mainline Halo series, still carries a tone of levity, and doesn't take itself too seriously. There's no epitome of love to rescue, as in Lovers, but the cooperative gameplay adds an element of camaraderie that runs parallel to the journey of Lovers' pair of astronaut adventurers.
