Riguardo questo gioco

It's the future! And humanity is, predictably, under attack by extraterrestrial forces. Lucky for us we have an experimental ship that's never before been flown that will surely...uh, possibly...well, implausibly be able to win the war! All we need now is a pilot or two.

Key Features

  • Fight through five increasingly-populated shoot-em-up stages
  • Destroy a plethora of enemies (or, as we like to call them, "potential explosions")
  • Switch between two distinct weapons on the fly: bullets for lots of damage over lots of space and a locking beam for concentrating on those hard-to-reach areas!
  • Use your shields to zip unharmed through enemy attacks!
  • Overcharge your weapons on the fly for even more destructive power!
  • Original faux-orchestral soundtrack is like music to your ears! Because it IS music. For your ears.
  • Multiple game modes, from the start-at-any-level normal mode up to "I have but one life to give for my planet" survival mode.
  • Local co-op allows you and a friend (or even a complete stranger that you're willing to invite into your home, if you want) to team up and deliver double the delicious destruction!
  • Support for playing in portrait orientation for a true top-down shmup experience!

From my point of view Procyon is the greatest shmup on steam because it has got no flaws at all.

It offers a highly enjoyable coop mode, beautiful, sharp graphics and great lighting effects. The amazing orchestral soundtrack uses one characteristic and short motive in all stages.

Even the hilarious background story is thought provoking and really well written: " We are humans, we're REMARKABLY GOOD at fighting and we fought back / Unfortunately, we're humans. We are REMARKABLY BAD at ressource management!"

This game for this ridiculous low price deserves your attention. It's deeply accessible, features easy / hard modes and therefore it will please casual players and even veterans.

I can't praise enough the hard work of Josh Jersild, the developer of this little gem.
This guy did all the programming, the hilarious voiceovers, the great score and the modeling / texturing ON HIS OWN in his spare time but this game that easily stands out from the rest doesn't feel like homebrew.

Just check the other reviews on the store page! This tasty, delicious cake can hardly be a lie!!

Playing Procyon thanks to #GamesMatter, I have NO IDEA why this gem has not received more attention.

The humor is spot-on, the shump gameplay is fun without being overwhelming, and the game is ONLY $3.99!

Highly recommended.

Amazingly fun shmup! Love the humour and the difficulty settings are perfect. Have played through on easy and working on beating the final boss on normal... looking forward to getting smoked in hard mode :) Pick this game up it's a real treat!

Well... I can say only one word: Fantastic!
This game is so perfect to play when bored.
Simple, few modes, nice graphic and that feeling: I must pass the level :D
For now it's my favorite arcade game :)

I love this game. Just the right amount of difficulty - and it's the first game on Steam that I've beaten. It's only five levels - I cleared it in just over two hours, spread over many weeks.
