This won’t be easy, and it won’t be quick. But that’s okay. You’re not going anywhere.



Kaleidoscopic space combat— G-force fuelled battles against an unknown, unknowable enemy. An arcade shooter reminiscent of classic and modern pillars of the genre. It demands focus, cunning, and a gunner’s timing.

Upgrades — Beat your personal high score in a run to unlock upgrades. Customise your ship and master new tactics to live just a little longer.

Evolving story — Uncover the secrets of why you’re stuck in Cycle, why the enemy are hell bent on destroying everything you love, and just who they really are.

Epic original score —A powerfully atmospheric mix of modern orchestral and retro electronic sounds by Jordan Rees. (Composer of trailer music for The Mummy [Universal Pictures], Mother [Paramount Pictures], The Defenders [Marvel Studios]).

Happy Saturday to everyone out there. Hope you have an exciting weekend planned.

Mine started okay, Dave is moving house so I decided to try and climb up the Cycle 28 leaderboards without him distracting me. Things were going pretty good then... well you'll have to watch to see what happened...


To prove that Dave and I are in fact two different people, earlier in the week we decided to appear on camera at the same time. We discussed the upgrade system, specifically how you unlock them, which is a little different to most games. Learn more by watching the video below.


To keep up to date with all the latest and get a free copy of the Cycle 28 soundtrack join our mailing list here. I'll give Colin one dog treat for every join this week!

Can Sean and Dave fly, shoot, *and* make exciting beta announcements? We doubt it...
