Long story:

The story of Goggles takes place in the world of Vaporia, a steampunk society that is run by the global company Fumare Tech.

Almost every aspect of life in Vaporia is mechanized. You can find automatons everywhere. Some of them are very small and just roam the streets to keep them clean, others are bigger than houses and are used to build and construct the ever growing cities of Vaporia.

Next to those everyday automatons from Fumare Tech, there are also free inventor workshops. One of the best known workshops is the one of Master Vules Jerne.
It is the night before the big reveal of Master Jernes new discovery: the existence of parallel universes!
Next to his discovery, he and his apprentice Quentin have been working on some special lenses, which they placed in various Goggles, that allow the wearer to have a look into those universes!
In the morning the Goggles will be presented to the public and Master Jerne is just finishing his final tests when something terrible happens: one dimension after another turns black...
Jerne immediately starts to check for the alleged error in his Goggles when suddenly a dimension crack opens directly in front of him!
While Jerne is watching in disbelieve a mucous black shadow enters the world. As the shadow realizes that Jerne can see him, he immediately goes for the Goggles.
The Goggles are lost in the attack and dimension cracks open all over Vaporia. It is up to you and three other players in the roles of Master Vules Jerne, his apprentice Quentin Quaint, the mysterious Fumare Tech trader Tesla o' Tool or the lovable steamworker Frank Frankson, the get the Goggles back by traveling all over Vaporia, and stop the black shadows.


Gameplay and characters

Goggles is an online coop arena shooter for up to four player. You can play as one of four different characters, namely Quentin, Frank, Tesla or Jerne. Each character comes with a unique set of weapons, vehicle and special abilities.

The main goal in Goggles is to retrieve all goggles that have been lost at the beginning of the game. In order to do so you have to close black shadow rifts which are guarded by hordes of possessed automatons.

While closing rifts more and more areas in each district are opening up for you to explore.

Once all areas in a district are opened you can either try to close all remaining rifts or fight the endboss before the time runs out to get the lost Goggles back.

There are special events in each area that will be triggered at random. These events range from simple collect-missions to convoy- and hunt-missions. When you complete those additional missions you gain bonus time and items to help you in your main fight.

The positions of the shadow rifts and events are random generated, so each playthtough will be unique.


Quentin Quaint

The resourceful student of Master Vules Jerne is the all-rounder of the group. His main attack is a big mortar attached to his S.E.W.D. (Steam Enhanced Wheelchair Device).
At close range and in tight situations Quentin relies on his trusty flamethrower and his overdrive move, the MegaCanon, where the S.E.W.D. morphes into a multishot plattform.

Frank Frankson

Frank, an old friend and companion of Quentin's family, is the good heart of the team. Quentin and Jerne helped him to modify his Fumare Tech steamsuit and attached a hammer and a rocketarm to it. With his ability to jump over walls and up on rooftops, Frank is able to take shortcuts and is often takes front row and center when keeping automatons at bay.

Tesla o' Tool

The mysterious Fumare Tech arms dealer is Tesla o‘Tool. Equipped with her especially developed bikeblades, Tesla is a serious threat even for well armored opponents.
While not as sturdy as the other members of the group, Tesla is more than capable to defend herself by taking advantage of her incredible speed.

Vules Jerne

Master Vules Jerne uses, as the master inventor that he is, the newest inventions in science to fight his foes: Electricity and his miraculous steamfloating device!
With his middle ranged blaster and electric mines that disable automatons, he is the first choice when it comes to holding and controlling areas.
