You think Cycle 28 is a 2D space shooter in the classic arcade style, where only your score matters. The controls are simple. The action is fast-paced. Insane dogfights lead to epic, screen-filling bosses. But the truth is: You don’t know what Cycle 28 is. Not yet.

The Soundtrack has Arrived!

This morning we received the masters for Cycle 28's soundtrack. The original score was composed by Jordan Rees (The Defenders, TV Trailer, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Teaser Trailer and The Martian, TV Trailer),

You can listen to the main theme of Cycle 28 in our trailer. Dave and I are super happy with how things turned out. Music is going to be a core part of Cycle 28, every 6 minutes Olivia will find herself ground-hogging back in time to the start of the longest day of her life. This means as the player you have to maximize your high score in that limited time. The better you play the more ships we throw at you to destroy and rack up points. The piece Jordan has written builds over that 6 minutes so just by listening to the music you'll have a sense of how long you've got left. It's a modern orchestral sound with hints of Halo and Mad Max: Fury Road, not neccesarily what you expect to hear when playing a retro style shmup - but trust us it works...

To keep up to date with the latest Cycle 28 news, including the launch of our beta, add it to your wishlist, send a like our way on facebook and follow us on twitter.

Edit: Just posted a video here with the in-game sound track.

About This Game

Cycle 28 is—

You think Cycle 28 is a 2D space shooter in the classic arcade style, where only your score matters. The controls are simple. The action is fast-paced. Insane dogfights lead to epic, screen-filling bosses. But the truth is:

You don’t know what Cycle 28 is. Not yet.

As Olivia Bergen – a flight lieutenant that has become separated from her fleet – you only know Cycle 27. You live it over, and over, and over again. And if that wasn’t bad enough, every time you drop from warp they are waiting for you.

You don’t know who they are or what they want. You just know you’re the only thing between them and home. So you get better, faster, stronger. Maybe one of these Cycle’s you’ll figure it out. Until then, you can only keep dying.

Key features


Kaleidoscopic space combat — G-force fuelled battles against an unknown, unknowable enemy. An arcade shooter reminiscent of classic and modern pillars of the genre, which demands focus, cunning, and a gunner’s timing.

Upgrades — Beat your personal high score in a run to unlock upgrades. With over 100 possible configurations, customise your ship and master new tactics to live just a little longer.

Evolving story — Uncover the secrets of why you’re stuck in Cycle, why they’re hell-bent on destroying everything you love, and just who they really are.

Epic original score — A powerfully atmospheric mix of modern orchestral and retro electronic sounds by Jordan Rees (Blade Runner 2049 IMAX Countdown, Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare DLC Trailer, The Defenders TV Trailer).



Cycle 28 won’t be easy. It won’t be quick. But that’s okay. You’re not going anywhere.
