The Anacrusis is an FPS designed for co-op gameplay. Game was developed by independent studio Stray Bombay.


The Anacrusis takes us to the distant future, when mankind fulfilled its dream about space colonization. Expeditions sent to the farthest corners of the galaxy did not find any traces of alien life forms, so civilization could develop peacefully, falling into a growing complacency. The situation changed dramatically when the first contact with hostile aliens occurred. The unlucky ones, who found themselves in their way, had no choice but to fight for their lives.


In The Anacrusis we observe the action from first person perspective (FPP). During the game we fight off bigger and more powerful hordes of enemies. On our way there are both regular opponents, who attack in mass quantities, and much stronger than them bosses. We eliminate enemies, making use of an extensive, futuristic arsenal. Apart from various guns we have useful gadgets at our disposal, such as shield grenade which provides temporary protection or Respawner which allows to resurrect fallen allies. During the game we also gain various perks that give us additional advantage on the battlefield.

A special system (AI Driver) supervises the gameplay; its goal is to ensure the appropriate level of challenge regardless of the players' skills and to make each game look different. It analyzes our style of play and, based on the information obtained, places enemies on the map and disperses weapons, gadgets and first aid kits, as well as directs the actions of the bosses. What's more, if we play with people who have made less progress in the story than us, it makes sure that they do not encounter spoilers.
