A.R.E.S.: Extinction Agenda is the first chapter in a full featured episodic hardcore action packed side scrolling platformer, in the tradition of retro classics, where you play as Ares, a combat robot created for the sole purpose of saving humanity. Can you live up to the task or will you be reduced to nuts and bolts?


  • Play through various locations in the A.R.E.S. universe, each a beautiful, unique, 3D environment with challenging obstacles.
  • You are the ultimate weapon with the ultimate sidekick – Collect the secret items and get power up to become a perfect weapon.
  • Come face to face with colossal opponents, learn their patterns to defeat them in battle.
  • Destroy enemies, collect their parts, and then recycle them to make incredible items, including health packs, ammo, and weapon upgrades.

Hi everyone!

It has been a while since our last update about the game. We are very happy to announce that our A.R.E.S. Extinction Agenda EX is now available on Steam.

Support us, Get it now (10% off for the first week)

What's new in EX?

For us, EX is like the remake/improved version of the original A.R.E.S. Extinction Agenda plus the expansion of new levels and a new playable character.

1. Five original levels are retouched and redesigned at some parts. The weapon/ability system and GUI are totally redesigned.

2. New high resolution textures as well as brand new animated cut scenes and dialogue.

3. Original enemies and bosses are also re-balanced. Some of them are improved with the new AI

4. There are 2 new levels, built from the ground up, with new enemies, obstacles, mini bosses and bosses. The story is also rewrited, so it reflects new level line up.

5. A new playable character, Tarus, is added with its own story and ending (but the sequence of levels line up is the same as Ares) Tarus comes with his own combat style and ability. I personally recommend everyone who played the original version try the new character.

6. The character leveling system and achievements are reworked.

7. New soundtracks for Tarus campaign.

In short, many things that we hope to be in the original version are here in the EX version. I do really enjoy the EX and I hope everyone here would enjoy it too.

Any chance we can get the DLC that seems to be currently Steam-only?

It uses XNA framework, it seems devs would have to build their own custom middleware to support Linux.

Exactly! Turrican I & II were some of my favorite games back in the Amiga 500 days. If Extend Interactive also integrate something similar to Turrican's "energy drill" on a future level pack, expansion or A.R.E.S. II, I'd love it even more!

Awesome, awesome 2d side scrolling action game in the vein of the Mega Man/Mega Man X series, older Metroid and Contra games! I haven't found a game quite like this in a long time, probably not since the before mentioned predecessor console system's games. I signed up for Desura just for this game alone and boy, was it worth it! Any old school gamers will absolutely LOVE this 2d side scrolling shooter and now that it's only 10 bucks, it's a steal and a no-brainer! GET IT AND ENJOY THE PSUEDO 2D OLD SK00L GOODNESS!!! X^D

Sorry for the double post, but, an idea came to me. Will there be a level editor, or modding capabilities in future updates? And if so, would multiplayer be possible?

Say, do you plan on fixing some of the translation? Like, say, the spelling of Photon Launcher or some of the cutscenes? I mean, I understand what you translated, it's just not exactly correct.
And do you plan on adding on content, or saving it for the later 'chapters'?
It's no big issue, though. Great job on the game, it's awesome!
