FEATURES

  • You are Carol, a boy forced to be a girl who wants revenge.
  • A 2D side-scrolling shooter game with an unique highly stylized aesthetics and pure handcrafted sprites loosely inspired by 8-bit ZX Spectrum classics.
  • Challenging gameplay developed with feedback from speedrunners and hardcore gamers.
  • An amazing Synthwave/Retrowave soundtrack consisting of 48 tracks composed by some of the greatest exponents of the genre.
  • A kick-ass 2D action shooter game: claustrophobic level design, hyper aggressive enemies, fast-paced duels based on one-hit headshot kills, unusual vintage vehicles, 12 different weapons (from grenade launcher to portal gun), secrets, Easter eggs and the S.A.T. (Self-Antimatter-Transmutation).
  • Hardcore Mode, an optional gaming mode implemented to give an extra level of challenge to players. If you lose all your lives, you will be brought to the “Game Over” screen and you will have to start back at Level 1. There is also no save file or anything that you can save to, so you will not be able to go back to the stage you are on if you turn off the game.
  • Local multiplayer PVP for up to 4 players. Currently there are 4 planned game modes.
  • DRM-free distribution on Steam, itch.io and GOG.
