It's 2 days earlier than we first announced, but Strania is now live on Steam!
On behalf of the entire G.rev team, we sincerely hope you enjoy this traditional Japanese 2D shoot 'em up. Thanks to everyone who offered their support and kind words!
One little note on a slight adjustment made for the Steam version - We have created an additional option in the settings that was not available in the Xbox360 build. Players now have the option to restart the game from the previous checkpoint when continuing the game by switching the "REVIVAL" option in the settings to ON.
We received several messages to the tune of "If only there was a revival option..." from fans upon the Xbox360 release. At the time, we attempted to resolve the issue by allowing a maximum of 9 extra lives in the update. The Steam build, however, gives the players the option of reviving, so reaching the final stage on HARD difficulty has become a bit more reasonable.
With the new option, we hope those that gave up without clearing the game will try again with the REVIVAL option.
G.rev Ltd. announced today that it will release "Strania - The Stella Machina -" on Steam on November 26, 2015 (PST).
With more than 100 million active users globally, Steam is considered to be the largest digital distribution platform for PC gaming. G.rev is pleased to gain participation in the platform as a publisher and is planning to self-publish its games previously released to other platforms as well as new titles in the future.
The company believes this will be a valuable opportunity to reach out to overseas fans who have expressed strong demand for G.rev’s archive of games and to expand its customer base.
G.rev has pinned "Strania - The Stella Machina -" as its first title on Steam. The robot shoot ‘em up was originally published for the Xbox360 worldwide and Japanese arcades in 2011. Distribution on Steam is planned to begin on November 26, 2015 (PST).
About Strania - The Stella Machina
This vertically scrolling robot shoot ‘em up is an ode to the nostalgia of 1980s arcade games. Featuring a multi-faceted weapons system and dramatic visual effects, Strania was well-received for its stylistic retro graphics and modernized game system.
