About Quyrium

Quyrium, our first game, is a challenging bullet hell shoot'em up (or "shmup") made for hardcore gamers as well as players who are new to the genre. It is heavily inspired by the classic arcade games but it also comes with some fresh flavours. The game is still in development but you already can check out the demo to get a first impression.

The game is set in the year 2143 and features mysterious alien landscapes, beautiful space scenes, powerful weapons, extreme special effects, and an insectoid-looking alien race, presented in an unusual mix of 2D- and 3D-graphics.

Gameplay-wise, the game is inspired by classic japanese arcade shoot'em ups from the 80's and 90's as well as modern Danmaku-games. It's definitely going to be a tough challenge but we're not exclusively designing the game for hardcore-players - so, don't be afraid to check it out, even though you are new to shooting games.

Get the demo!

We're still working hard to get the final game done but you can already download the demo and test your skills!
