Opera GX: Browser for video game lovers Opera GX has launched Operius, a spaceship arcade game that will appear when the customer loses internet access, following the same principle as Google Chrome’s “Dinosaur”.
Developed with GameMaker Studio 2, the initiative was the winner of a Game Jam, a trade show where experts in the field try to make games in a short period of time, from Opera GX in July. The novelty created by Twitter user “Mors” guaranteed a price of US$10 thousand, about R$57 thousand in direct conversion.
The simple game involves shooting aliens and dodging objects using the “W, A, S and D” keys while flying through a tunnel. There is also the option to try out a local multiplayer mode with two people sharing the keyboard.
If the interested party has a stable connection, Operius can be used on the Game Jolt website or directly in the software; you just need to type “opera://operius” in the search bar.
Notably, the game will be available on GXC, the future independent publisher games platform with GameMaker Studio from Opera, which the company responsible for the engine acquired in January 2021.
