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]).
