San Francisco, CA –November 22, 2021– Indie game development studio Universal Entities is releasing Laserboy, their first-ever and free to play video game on Steam today.

“Laserboy is a remaster of the iconic video game by Catfun Corp, originally created for the Funvision Entertainment System. Thought until recently to have been forever lost to time, the game has been painstakingly rebuilt and faithfully recreated from the ground up.”

In Laserboy, you guide Buddy through 13 top-down levels filled with destructible objects, forbidden secrets, and a cast of friendly and not-so-friendly characters. The catch? You shoot an uncontrollable tactical laser beam out of your eye every few seconds. Play tactically or destroy everything — the choice is yours but not everything is what it seems.

  • 13 top-down 2D pixel-perfect levels
  • Original 8-bit music
  • Destructible objects
  • Easy to play, hard to master.
  • Tons of unlockable achievements
  • Hidden lore and more
  • Play how you want: destroy everything or try to keep the damage to a minimum
