About This Game

Counterpact is a 2D platform-shooter that pits two teams against each other, or a solo player against the tough, radiant forces the Gilded Spire has to offer.

7 Unique Characters
Each playable character comes with their own set of mechanics. If you enjoy glass cannon gameplay, try Shiniko the Reaper, who can output some serious damage despite her low health and close-ranged attacks; use her Dash to maneuver around (or through) enemies. Prefer to take a beefier approach? Try SYS.TR the Bulwark, who can use channel the damage she receives into powerful auras using her Rerouted Power.

Different Weapons to Try
Don't like how a character plays by default? Maybe the current situation calls for something different? Perhaps you're just looking for to spice up their gameplay? Each character has a variety of alternate weapons to choose from, some of which even change their role, all while keeping their core mechanics intact. New weapons will be added over time as well.

Over 200 Cosmetics to Collect
By simply playing the game (no microtransactions are involved), you can earn Eclipsium which can be used to purchase new weapons and cosmetics. Cosmetic items include different outfits for characters, little pets that follow you, chairs that you can sit on, emotes to taunt with, and more. Having a hard time getting what you want? Don't worry, you can even trade items with other players.

Enter the Gilded Spire
If you want a solo experience, the Gilded Spire awaits you. Fight through four floors of bulky enemies and traps for a chance to earn riches. If you really want to challenge yourself and reap great rewards, try conquering the Gilded Spire on the Blinding difficulty. After that, you can truly test yourself with Gilded Gauntlets.
