Description

Vortex is a top down competitive local multiplayer shooter game where the goal is to fly around in neat looking spaceships and kill your opponent by making his life miserable.

How do I ruin his life? It’s super simple. You fire at their vortex until awesome powerups appear. You then pick them up and fire them right back into their vortex.

Neat looking spaceships! Tell me more!

Choose the right one:

tx_rapier

The Rapier

tx_gladius

tx_claymore

Please Read

Please know that we at Displace Media are working hard to bring you this game. We will be releasing this in Early Access once Greenlit. The game is completely playable end to end for two players. Our focus next is to add three and then four players. Sounds, effects, graphics, HUD and game balancing are not final and will be tweaked continuously based on community input.

I hope you enjoy the game as much as we had fun making it.
