Publisher Playism and developer Forge Reply announced on March 4th that their couch combat title, In Space We Brawl, will be removed from Steam on March 17th. The game has been on an 80% off sale since the announcement:
Hello brawlers! We have some sad news concerning multiplayer space shooter In Space We Brawl. It has been regretfully decided that the game will be removed from the Steam store as of March 17th. However, from now until the game is removed it will be available for 80% off! Now is literally your last chance to buy this game!
Comment from the developer, Forge Reply: We are now restructuring our portfolio and In Space We Brawl will no longer be available on Steam. Please note that, if you have purchased a copy of the game, it will remain available in your game library. Our deepest thanks to all the players who have brawled in space with us!
For those who have yet to play the game it is the last chance to do so. It is a local multiplayer game, so at release many users may not have been able to play with their friends as they would have liked. But now the game can be played on Steam Remote Play so even if your friends don’t own the game you will be able to play with them!
This could also be a good chance to gift the game to some of your friends as it is available at an extremely low cost at the moment. We hope you take this opportunity to play this fun little game!
In Space We Brawl is also poised to disappear on consoles. While we’ve received no confirmation just yet, the game was recently removed from Xbox One where it was published by Forge Reply themselves. As of this writing both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 versions are still available but may be delisted soon. I’ve added the date to the Watch List calendar and will have a page up on the site soon.
