Perseus 230 is an adrenalin-inducing rail shooter inspired by classics like Star Fox and Sin&Punishment, with stunning cel-shaded and hand painted visuals.

The vision for this game emerged from our love of space games. We wanted to create something that, first and foremost, we would love playing ourselves. As big fans of RTS and other intense multiplayer games, we also knew a strong human factor was necessary.

Perseus 230 is designed to offer a fantastic single player experience as well as local multiplayer. A deep and high-intensity game designed from the ground up to be enjoyed with friends, with co-op that doesn't lean on split screen and isn't an afterthought. Rail shooters provide the perfect framework to fulfill this vision, in addition to a low barrier of entry for players not familiar with the genre.

The Game

- Blast through enemy laden missions with responsive and fun combat that is easy to pick up and hard to let go. Customize each ship with hundreds of weapons and upgrades.

- Explore the Perseus sector where the main action is happening and unlock wormholes to other sectors. Solve each sector's unique story arc, reshaping the galaxy through your actions.

- Uncover each character's personal narrative and help them achieve their goals.

- Share the experience with local co-up up to 3 players. Extra players can jump in and out of the game at any point in the mission. More players means more rewards!

Core Mechanics

Items - You'll come across a wide range of weapons and mods of various alien origins. Explore each weapon's unique mechanics and find the best item combos. Build your ships to fit your play style and that of your co-op buddies. Each ship starts with 5 attachment points on its body and wings. Oh, and you can swap the wings too.

Barrel Roll - A classic mechanic, taken to a new level. Because of the deep itemization, the Barrel Roll becomes part of a much grander system where it can be boosted into deflecting shots, improved locomotion, different weapon synergies and even secret level locations that can only be accessed by a well timed Barrel Roll!

Branching Rails - At the heart of all Rails Shooters is the automatic level navigation. We've added a twist by allowing the user to choose, through an act of skill (e.g. timed Barrel Roll) to go down special routes. We think this mechanic opens up a huge design space which we are eager to explore!

Local Multiplayer - Experience innovative ways to interact with your allies as you work your way through each mission. Go head-to-head in the wormhole races. Design your ships for maximum co-op synergy or compete for the best rewards.

Original Soundtrack - The Algorithm

We're thrilled to have award-winning musician THE ALGORITHM onboard to compose our tracks. French DJ/Producer Rémi Gallego infuses modern metal riffs and rhythms with electronic sub-genres such as IDM, chiptune and breakcore, concocting his own style of fiercely heavy and individual music.

Yes, it's sad for us too because this game was truly fun to work on. P230 is not a simple game to make--without a budget we had to make the hard decision and freeze development. We have been quietly working on other projects and would love to retake this in the future.

Sadly, this project is dead.

Is this project dead or not? You guys have already gotten greenlit! Isn't that enough reason to give this another shot in development?

I'm very disappointed that the kickstarter didn't succeed. I really hope there will be a future for this game, or even if there's any updates from the creators as to what's going on with the project as of now!
