About Aaero2:
In Aaero2 you take control of a mysterious spacecraft, tracing ribbons of light to release the energy in the music. Encounter strange enemies and giant boss creatures in stunning alien worlds. Unleash devastating missile barrages and rain heavy cannon fire to the beat of the epic soundtrack from Monstercat.

The sequel to the critically-acclaimed Aaero (2017), Aaero2 features 2 player co-op and PvP game modes both local/couch and online. Mad Fellows have partnered with record label Monstercat, known for its genre-diverse music, to provide the soundtrack for Aaero2.

“Aaero2 has been in full-time development since 2019. We've avoided announcing a release date up until now because we always said ‘it will take as long as it takes’. We’re very proud of it and can’t wait to see what people think.” – Paul Norris: Creative Director, Mad Fellows

  • An incredible licensed soundtrack supplied by Monstercat.
  • 2 player co-op and PvP modes (both couch and online).
