Attack or avoid dozens of unique enemy types determined to thwart your progress. Exception's controls have been carefully refined to offer responsive, precise movement without burdening the player with complexity. The result is a game that's just as easy to pick up and play on day one as it is weeks later. Easy to play yet challenging to master.

The platformer genre is taken for a spin as levels twist and turn to offer players exciting new challenges

Posted by on

Today, Exception was added to Steam Greenlight after 18 months of initial work. The title is scheduled for release in late 2015 for PC, Linux and Mac.


Exception is a new action platformer set in a computer infested with malware. Your goal is to free the computer's operating system from an evil regime bent on total destruction.

The game presents a new approach to the standard platformer game by transforming levels as the player progresses. Entire levels twist, flip and rotate to create new challenges for the player. Battle against a range of ground and air based enemies while avoiding fast moving obstacles.

Exception's controls have been carefully refined to offer responsive, precise movement without burdening the player with needless complexity. The result is a title that's just as easy to pick up and play on day one as it is years later.

• Retro-themed bonus stages based on classic gaming systems
