What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We believe that listening to the community is crucial when it comes to game development.
Early Access is a great opportunity for us, to share with you our plans, the development process and get direct feedback, which can be later implemented into the final product.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game should stay in Early Access for at least 2-3 months. The exact time depends on how well the polishing process of the game goes as we don’t want to release an unfinished product.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The core gameplay mechanics are finished, as well as the basic in-game content (environments, weapons, upgrades, enemies and playable characters). Now we’re working on additional content, weapon and skill balance, enemy AI and game optimization to improve the overall gameplay experience.

We also aim to bring you some multiplayer features (co-op and PvP) after the full release.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The PositronX Early Access version is fully playable and stable, with content for hours of play. All the features mentioned on our store page are implemented. We wanted to release the best Early Access version possible, giving you a real taste of the final product we want to build.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“After release, the price might be a bit higher as we want to continue our work on this project and provide you with new features and content in the future. But it’ll be worth it!”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We plan on gathering all the incoming feedback, both positive and negative. We will address this feedback by releasing patches and fixes. Steam forum and our social media channels can be used to provide us with feedback, ideas and report issues. We believe that communication is the key to success. That’s why we hope that you’ll provide us with feedback and maybe new ideas on how to improve the game. This is the main reason why we wanted to release our game in Early Access. After all, we’re all gamers who want the same thing - a great, memorable game.
Thank you for your support!”

About This Game

PositronX is a futuristic Rogue-lite First-Person Shooter emphasizing with fast-paced combat, creative movement and time control mechanics packed with breathtaking visuals. Various weapons and abilities which will help you fight your way through and a complex progression system to make you way stronger than you could ever imagine.

With countless different combinations of Weapons and Upgrades, the game you play will never be the same!

Implants provide you with new abilities. There are tens of Implants to use in PositronX and they can totally change the way you play the game. Time can be slowed down, stopped and rewound, you can fly, wall jump or teleport; space can be traversed in an instant. You can stop bullets in mid-air and send them back to the attackers and much more. There are no limits.

Based on the setup you choose to start with and the choices you make during the game, the play-through can be either easier, harder or almost impossible to beat. But don't take it personally if you die too often, you are supposed to. And you will. There is an ever growing database with information that updates with each run. After a few deaths you should be getting the hang of it and you will be doing a lot better. In this case what kills you just makes you stronger.

In the good Rogue-like spirit, PositronX offers a randomly generated environment, along with items and enemies. All based on hand-crafted models.
But there’s more than meets the eye.

  • Rogue-lite game mechanics - randomly generated levels, items, and enemies. You never play the same game twice.
  • 4 playable characters (Positrons) - each with their own characteristics
  • Player progression system (Turing Progression System - TPS)
  • Various Imprints and Implants to customize your character - fully upgradable mind-blowing abilities that your character can acquire, each with their own modifiers
  • Lots of weapons with a dozen upgrades - all having two different firing modes, each with their own modifier
  • Game Modifiers - change the rules of the game and get even more unique experience
  • 3 game stages to play - more coming soon!
  • Local Leaderboards - you can compete with your friends and other players
...and more

Everything we have done so far is to make sure that the player will always have a new experience. New combinations to try on and options to choose from for countless hours of play - this is the foundation of our game.

In the near future, our sun is dying.
Humanity is on the brink of extinction.
Our last hope is Turing - an A.I., which is sent, along with frozen human embryos, on an unmanned expedition to distant space in the search of a planet that will ensure our survival. During his long journey, he discovers Kepler, a young planet which will become a new home for mankind. In order to adapt the planet to human needs, Turing deploys the Machine Swarm - an intelligent machine factory, being able to develop outposts and machines that will support people in building their new home. But not everything goes according to the plan...
For unknown reasons, Machine Swarm covers the whole planet with quarantine, which leads to communications disruption with Turing, being on orbit. To discover what happened, he sends a human-like armed machine with its own consciousness - Positron.
The truth, however, lies deeply hidden under the surface of the planet...
