RiftStar Raiders
RiftStar Raiders

Arcade 28 February 2018

A top-down space shooter game designed specifically to deliver a co-op experience. The creators of the game, Climax Studios, were inspired mainly by titles popular long ago in arcades. The player takes on the role of an adventurer-pilot, who lives in the criminal center of the galaxy. The protagonist earns their living by selling valuable pieces of hardware salvaged from destroyed spaceships, oftentimes neutralized by themselves. Everything changes when an AI-controlled alien fleet declares a war on the civilized part of the galaxy. Smelling a great fortune to be made, the protagonist quickly sets out to save the world. The player's goal is to defeat the aliens, but definitely not for free. One flies here in a squad of up to four players. Moving across 2D maps, the player will face countless enemy ships belonging to the aliens, law enforcement, or rivaling pirate gangs. Everyone who stands between the player and valuable loot is the target in the game. Using the hardware collected, the player can create new weapons, shields, and engines, in order to make the ship's capabilities suit one's play-style.

The Sentient

Strategy canceled

Independent RPG, in which you assume the role of an Artificial Intelligence. The player’s job is to help the humanity in exploration of space. To do this, the protagonist is sent onto a space station, called The Ark, which is the base of operations. This is where you hire and train new astronauts, equip your spacecraft with necessary instrumentation and design its interior, as well as conduct research in order to improve the technology at hand. Next, you set off on a mission, the success of which depends on the actions you took on The Ark. The world in The Sentient is randomly generated, so nothing is ever 100% sure. Doing missions grants experience and knowledge, which translates to new possibilities. Due to permadeath feature, when your crew members die they are gone forever, so you should be careful not to lose an experienced employee. On the other hand, the bigger risk you take, the better reward you can get. The Sentient features 2D pixel-art graphics styled after 8- and 16-bit console games.
