Super Crome is Out Now!



The follow up game to Crome: Before Purgatory, just entered Early Access and you can check it out here!







The year is 40XX. Since the establishment of the Galactic Consul peace has reigned, but as of late a cold unease has settled into the barren soil of the colonies. It began at first with the odd distress signal — a company freighter lost in the dormant starfields, an occasional satellite having seemingly vanished from a backwater planet. Now, entire solar systems have slipped into the encroaching ink sweeping across the outskirts, and maddened whispers speak of a force beyond the void — Purgatory.

As mankind’s only hope for survival, Crome must eliminate dozens of waves of cosmic beasts and ships to escape the dark abyss. Thankfully, his sleek ship comes equipped with devastating weapons and a precise dashing ability; a perfect combination for slaying alien scum. Take control of Crome as he hunts down hordes of galactic monstrosities and bring back peace in this retro-inspired bullet hell.

Crome: Before Purgatory - Coming Soon



Crome: Before Purgatory will finally launch next week January 29th for Windows and Mac!

The game itself has been done for quite a while so it's a great weight off my shoulders to finally release this bad boy to the world. Crome's arcade mode is all wrapped up and most likely won't see any big updates for a bit. But I will try my best to fix any bugs that arise so please post if you encounter any issues!

I do plan on adding some new content down the line once I have more time (new enemies, bosses, items, weapons, maybe even a story mode if there's enough interest) so check back here often.

I look forward to seeing you all on the leaderboard next Tuesday!
