Arc is a 1-4 player arcade-mashup party-game. Wut?! That means we’ve taken inspiration from some of our favorite Arcade/Platformer games and mashed them up into something new and awesome. The goal of Arc is to protect ships as they launch. The ships carry the few survivors of Planet Arc, it’s your job to lead them to freedom and save civilization.
In some ways, Arc is like an RPG. In Arc, you and your friends create unique characters. Each player can level-up by playing the Arc Story Mode either solo or co-op. As you level, you will unlock utility slots that allow equipping active and passive utilities for your marine.
Leveling also rewards you with skill points that allow you to upgrade the effectiveness of your weapons and utilities.
In Arc, you will mow down evil cubes with some badass weapons, engage in epic boss fights and unlock special events. Some of the events and boss fights are designed to be their own little mini games. When you beat them, you unlock a special gameplay mode that allows you and your friends to play some fun party games.
Here are two shots from some of our epic boss fights.
