Publisher PQube and developer Cool Scooter Software have announced an upcoming physics simulation title about bananas in space called International Space Banana. The game is currently available on Steam. However, be aware that this is very much an April Fool’s joke as the soundtrack is listed at $199.99, please don’t buy it.
You can read this title’s jokey, yet advertised features below:
Experience the unique frustrations of controlling a banana in zero-gravity
Navigate 8 levels riddled with doors, crates, spinny things, and other space-junk
Figure out how to stop being a banana
Use your curves to spin, bounce and struggle in an attempt to control esoteric circumstances beyond your comprehension
Ponder troubling existential questions as commentary drives you to the brink
Players take control of an aerospace scientist turned banana and try to traverse 8 challenging levels within a seemingly abandoned space station. The frustration from the endless possibilities from the painfully-created physics simulations makes this title a test for the patient. The game is truly simple at its core with progression, but it will require repeated attempts from players to ultimately prevail.
As you suffer on your own, there are also “hundreds of lines of bizarre, witty, and frankly unhinged dialogue” that all deal with existentially contemplative queries. Players may, or may not find out if they are destined to remain in this state in-game for eternity.
International Space Banana is currently confirmed for Steam, with no other platforms announced.
