Vortrus is a top-down space shooter paying homage to the space shooters which refined the genre. It brings forth stunning 2D graphics, refined gameplay which can be played with keyboard, mouse or an XBOX controller, and an innovative movement system which requires more situational awareness as the sides of your ship are vulnerable as well. Why not give the unique system a try for yourself? Vortrus is free to play in Early Access right now! Try it here: Gamejolt.com.

Thank you!

As you probably know, I have a shortage of sound effects in Vortrus at the moment. However, I also have an amazing, astounding resource (Also the reason for my "credits" button): the Antti Luode repository! If you need free music, there are these 1300 free songs with no strings attached (as long as you give credit). Here you go! Reddit.com

Pretty cool, right? This is likely where I'll get my music. However, the sound effects in the game will likely be made with a synthesizer and little things lying around the house. Keep watching for more updates on Vortrus!

Keep up to date with Vortrus for more information!
