FAQs


Will this game have online multiplayer?

Unfortunately no. Asteroid Deathmatch is a small and cheap game originally developed to stress-test our coding assets, we decided to polish and release it as we want to see if the gaming community responds to the concept.

While we'd love to add online multiplayer, the development time and server costs are not insignificant. Maybe we'll add it if there's a sequel, who knows?

How does 4-players on one keyboard work?

By default the keyboard layout allows for 4 players on one keyboard by placing each player on a different section of the keyboard:

  • P1 - Arrow Keys, Right Ctrl and Space
  • P2 - WASD, Left Ctrl, Left Alt
  • P3 - Numpad Arrow Keys, Numpad 0, Numpad Enter
  • P4 - I J K L, 0, 8

It'll be cramped, but fun!

I have Epilepsy, can I play this game? / The flashes are annoying, can they be turned off?

Yes you can!

In the main menu go to the 'Graphics' menu, then make sure 'Flashing Lights' is set to 'OFF'.

This will stop the background flashing white when a ship dies.

I've found a bug, what do I do?
