In the lawless parts of the galaxy, massive corporations duke it out in all-out corporate warfare and espionage. You play as a Data-Thief: a skilled pilot who can fly into a corporate facility, grab their data, and then fly out again. Getting the data is a cakewalk. It's escaping back to your mothership that's the challenge. The whole planet is on high-alert and the corporation's private army is on your tail. You'll have to speed across a variety of alien environments while fighting off your pursuers if you want to see safety.

Flight of the Data-Thief is a 3D Rail-Shooter where you fly across a series of alien landscapes trying to escape from dangerous pursuers.

The game has a total of 9 levels (some of which can only be found by discovering hidden exits to levels).

I hope you enjoy.

Also, Ninja Outbreak did Breath Of The Wild's "let you reach the final boss early in the game" thing about a year before that game came out.

If you liked my Level Design Primer articles, Ninja Outbreak is basically an exercise in most of the stuff I wrote in those.

But, seriously, I'm really proud of Ninja Outbreak, but I'm aware it's got a really niche appeal. It's only $2.99 USD during the sale.

I thought I had scheduled those two sales for two different weeks, but I guess I didn't.
