[Notice] Cheru leaving Playism

Hi All

This is a general notice to all Playism titles.
From June 14th onwards, I (Cheru) will no longer be Playism's community manager. After over 4 years of working passionately in Playism, I have decided to leave and change direction. I am sad that I won't be working and playing with you all as a member of Playism anymore, however, I will still be around on Steam.

Thank you everyone for the amazing communities you have built around Playism games and I hope that you will all continue to enjoy their games for years to come.

- Cheru

80 – Coffee Break Gaming

“...Astebreed is a game that, in terms of quality and design, puts many recent triple-A releases to shame...”

STORY


You play as Roy Becket, a young pilot with dreams of becoming as skilled as his adoptive father. When a galactic war against 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 the horrible experiments to which she was subjected, she now possesses the very abilities humanity will need to push back the Doomsday Clock.

Together, the pair must face an unrelenting army alone and reunite their shattered families.

The end of civilization as we know it is on the horizon. Between humanity and eradication stands Astebreed.

The Arcade Shooter Genre, Evolved

Astebreed breathes new life into the classic arcade shooter genre. Using painstakingly crafted 3D models, cutting-edge particle effects, and old-school Japanese mech designs, Astebreed delivers an unparalleled experience of beautiful destruction.

Armed to the Teeth

Roy has a considerable arsenal at his disposal. Armed with the mysterious Lucis device, Roy's mech can unleash long-distance attacks, paint targets with a laser for precision homing attacks, and even get up close and personal 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 up in front of you. Your enemies swarm, fly, and intercept, and Astebreed's dynamic perspective always keeps the action in view. Seamlessly switching between vertical, horizontal, and 3D shooter, Astebreed will keep you guessing what your next threat will be, without ever interrupting the action.

System Requirements

    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
    • DirectX: Version 9.0
    • Additional Notes: Controller recommended
