Spaceteam is a cooperative party game for 2 to 4 players who shout technobabble at each other until their ship explodes. Each player needs a mobile device (Apple and Android can even play together over Wifi!). You'll be assigned a random control panel with buttons, switches, sliders, and dials. You need to follow time-sensitive instructions. However, the instructions are being sent to your teammates, so you have to coordinate before the time runs out. Also, the ship is falling apart. And you're trying to outrun an exploding star. Good luck. And remember to work together... as a Spaceteam!



  • Teamwork
  • Shouting
  • Confusion
  • An untimely demise
  • Beveled Nanobuzzers
  • Auxillary Technoprobes

About Sleeping Beast Games

Hi, I'm Henry. In 2012 I quit my job as a programmer at BioWare to spend a year making my own indie games. My first game was Spaceteam, which took me on lots of fun adventures, and now I'm working on a procedurally-generated multiplayer escape room called Blabyrinth. Support my work by joining the Spaceteam Admiral's Club!
