Players pilot a Gun Ship and battle aliens, pirates, and other villainous enemies, to gain levels, skills, and most importantly, discover unique and potentially more powerful weapon systems to outfit their Gun Ships. Through the unique cgNEAT content-generation technology, new weapons are constantly created by the game automatically based on player preferences. Every weapon in the game is unique. NOTE: Requires XNA 4 which is included in the download!
