    Metaverse Keeper is a 2D co-operative dungeon crawler with randomly generate levels. Slay sci-fi monsters, blobs, spiders, mini-bosses and more... with all kinds of weapons with upgrades and special moves. Select from 4 characters and wield many unique melee or projectile weapons... when you die your character becomes a helpful ghost who can revive when enough health found. When you both die, start over with a whole new dungeon layout...

    Conclusion:
    Metaverse Keeper ran perfectly in PlayOnLinux on my GeForce GTX 1060. I was able to play co-op with my Xbox controller and keyboard without any issues. Its actually a really fun game with a lot of replay. Monsters can be very difficult, so get to know the weapons and special abilities to stay alive. I'm not sure if a Linux version is planned, but on Steam Metaverse Keeper is still in beta and not available. Until then, play the demo on itch.io
