Burning out on making Stars Beyond Reach, Arcen Games announced a few months ago they were putting the 4X strategy game to one side to focus on a roguelikelike they’d been toying with for a while. That game, named Starward Rogue [official site], is now here. It’s a top-down shooter with oodles of bullets to dodge and bosses to battle, about mechs exploring a mysterious structure stuck in the side of a star. It’s colourful!
First, Starward Rogue! It’s a bullet hell-ish roguelikelike items where you’ll roam catacombs, find items, level up, and shoot a whole load of enemies. It’s got mod support too.
As for the Bionic Dues freebie, until 6pm on Saturday (10am Pacific) you can download it for free from Humble for keepsies. It comes as a DRM-free download and a Steam key too. As free games are everywhere nowadays, hey, have a read of Wot Adam Thinks if you’ll need persuasion to actually give it a play rather than just adding it to a vast stack of games you sleep curled atop.
