Hey everyone!

We couldn't believe our eyes when we first saw it, but Astebreed currently has a 93 on metacritic, making it the highest rated PC game of 2014 so far!

A gigantic "THANK YOU!" to all our fans, and to everyone that played and loved the game.

We hope that everyone that picks up the game loves it as much as we loved working on it.

Sincerely,

À propos du jeu

As of July 3rd, Astebreed is now available for $14.99.


Humanity Fights A Losing Galactic War!
Their Only Hope: a Young Pilot and a Girl Forever Changed.


You are Roy Becket, a young pilot with dreams of becoming as skilled as his adoptive father. When a galactic war with an ancient mechanical alien race reaches its boiling point, Roy is forced to spring into action and take control of an otherworldly bipedal war machine in hopes of saving what's left of humanity.

Joining Roy is a young girl who claims to have escaped the clutches of the nefarious aliens. Forever altered through horrible experimentation, she now possesses the very abilities humanity will need to push back the doomsday clock.

Together, they must battle an unrelenting army alone and reunite their shattered family.

The End of All Things is in sight. At the edge of eradication stands Astebreed.

Arcade Shooter Evolved

Astebreed takes the classic arcade shooter and breathes new life into it. Using lovingly crafted 3D models, cutting edge particle effects, and tried-and-true Japanese mecha designs, Astebreed delivers an unparalleled atmosphere of beautiful destruction.

A Full Arsenal

Roy has a considerable arsenal to combat his foes, as well. Armed with the mysterious Lucis device, Roy's mech can shoot from a distance, paint targets for precision homing attacks, and even get close for a killing blow with a powerful blade attack. No enemy shall escape your wrath, no matter where they hide.

Dynamically Changing Perspective

Your enemies are not always ahead of you. Your enemies swarm, fly and intercept, and Astebreed's dynamic perspective always keeps the action in view. Seamlessly switching between veritcal, horizontal, and 3D shooter, Astebreed will keep you guessing what your next threat will be, without ever interrupting the action.

Configuration requise

    Minimum:
    • OS: Windows XP/Vista/7/8
    • Processor: Core 2 Duo or faster
    • Graphics: Shader Model 3.0 compatible, GeForce 8600GT (2007 model) or better

Un gameplay très actif , une sensation de puissance omniprésente sans rendre le jeu simple , des effets visuels qui carressent la rétine et différents modes de difficultés et achievements pour satisfaire les joueurs les plus acharnés.
C'est toutefois un jeu très court ( 6 chapitres d'environ 15 / 30 minutes chacun ) mais que l'on referra avec plaisir.
Ce jeu a recu un métascore de 93 et a été extrêmement bien reçu par la critique , et ce n'est pas sans raison : Astebreed est certainement l'un des meilleurs jeux ( si ce n'est le meilleur shooter ) de 2014.

excellent shoot, la méchanique de jeu est parfaite, les controles customisable a souhait (manette X360 ici) et graphiquement, c'est sublime!
la dernière claque graphique du genre était sur Sine Mora (avec l'opton 3D active)

SI vous avez ne serait-ce qu'un vague interet pour le genre, vous DEVEZ acheter ce jeu.
C'est le plus réussi depuis un moment sur quasiment tous les points.

Le gameplay est excellent.
Les musiques sont bonnes.
Les graphismes sont tout a fait corrects - si on se cantonne au genre, ils sont magnifiques.
Le rythme global du jeu est bien foutu, avec tout plein de situations différentes.
Le boss de fin est énorme.
Le jeu est accessible a tous - en tout cas, a tous ceux qui prennent le temps de faire le tuto (10 minutes) pour comprendre tout ce dont le robot qu'on pilote est capable. Et y'a quatre niveaux de difficulté.

Cerise sur le gateau, l'histoire est sympa - en tout cas, la narration, fut-elle en jap sous titrée anglais, apporte un plus indéniable a ce qui est probablement les plus cinématique des shmups a scrolling horizontal jamais fait.

Ca sera probablement le meilleur jeu de cette catégorie cette année en occident.

Highly recommended, especially if you're a SHMUP fan. I definitely enjoyed my time with this. ^,^

-There are a total of 6 chapters, with a boss encounter for each. Early stages can be pretty easy, but it can get difficult later on, especially during some boss encounters. It can take you a few attempts during later boss encounters before you figure out their attack pattern and come up with a strategy to take them down!

-The visuals are pretty good for a SHMUP; I really liked the fantastic art aesthetics. Also, there are full Japanese voice overs for all of the characters (it's actually pretty good!) Subtitles are available, but you won't be reading much of it during intense fights.

-3 attacks are available to you (4 of you count the EX special which has 3 variants) and each attack has a secondary function. Scatter shots can lock on enemies around you, focus shots lock on enemies in a targeted direction and blade attacks can be used to dash across the screen. Destroying enemy shots with the blade will charge the EX meter faster.

-You'll end up using your full arsenal instead of just spamming one attack. You'll use blade attacks against tougher foes, switch between shots depending on your position, destroy certain enemy bullets with your blade, line up foes and dash across the screen with the blade dash to destroy them or avoid danger, and find the perfect moment to unleash your EX special to annihilate your foes.

-You can take some punishment before you die. Your "health" is your shields which recharges over time depending on which difficulty you're playing on.

-The camera perspective will change during combat keeping each encounter fresh. It switches between side-scrolling, top-down and 3D perspectives.

-Astebreed definitely has replayability. Hard mode is extremely challenging. You also have the option to turn on scoring to test your skills and compete against other player's scores on the online leaderboards. Feel the arcade goodness!

-There are unlockables! Hard mode (for you crazy SHMUP lovers) and other content becomes available after beating the game (not gonna spoil anything!)
