Reviews

“I really like it. One of my favourite indie games of the moment... This game is a lot of fun.”
KeepCalmAndGameOn

“The game is packed full of disturbing enemies which makes it all the more satisfying to splatter whole rooms of them into paste with a rocket launcher... Necro Mutex offers impossible challenges, then gives players all the tools they'll need to overcome them. It's an example of brilliant game design motivating players to keep coming back over and over again. As if the thrill of splattering thousands of thanatoids didn't already have that covered... Necro Mutex is the best arcade shooter currently available in VR. It's a truly exceptional experience in every way and provides the kind of brutal, high octane thrills I've only ever seen a handful of times before.”

About This Game

* Play the levels you want, stay on the easy maps or jump to high risk, high reward sectors.

* A multitude of different enemies and special map challenges.
* Multiple leaderboards for different game modes.
* Hardcore old-school shooter with rogue-like elements.

An Orcus Research Cartel station orbiting a deep space magnetar has gone rogue. The operating system has killed the crew and turned them into thanatoids, half dead monsters with a lust for murder. And if that's not bad enough, the corporate A.I. back at Earth System has triggered the station's self destruct sequence. Your only chance is to fight your way through an army of weaponized undead and find an escape pod, before time runs out or the thanatoids overwhelm you.

10,000 levels of chaotic science fiction horror that rise inexorably in difficulty. Choose which maps you play, in any order, from the dead easy beginning sectors to the certain death end sectors. Take on extra challenges for big rewards, and use those rewards to buy new weapons and survival skills. The maps start small and painless, but sector by sector the challenge mercilessly ramps up, until at some point they become practically impossible. Where that point is depends on your skill.

Find the escape pods to complete the game, or just keep going and see how far you can get. Rise up on the leaderboards.
