What is Andromeda?

Andromeda is our game project. An exploration game, full Metroidvania style with 8-bit aesthetics and inspired by the great classics of the genre. Balancing story with play-ability and an open galaxy universe, we present a hardcore experience that you can only overcome by combining the DNA of your enemies in the DNA-GUN.

Do you dare to uncover the dark secret of ANDROMEDA?

The Game

Andromeda is a retro action, exploration and investigation game. By playing Andromeda you will be able to travel to the ends of the universe and explore to your liking planets yet to be seen; unravel hidden mysteries and fight against threats that you would have never imagined. The gameplay aspect of the game can be divided in three major categories:

Planetary Exploration

Once you find a planet that you can access, you will be able to explore it in the most genuine Metroidvania style. Freely explore the planet, break secret walls to find hidden secrets, investigate old diaries and, of course, survive the dreadful alien life forms.

Star Travels

With the help of your spaceship ATILA-1 you will travel through Andromeda, defending yourself against the multiple and different threats that will hinder your trip. There will be destinations and routes too dangerous, but don’t worry because you can upgrade your spaceship to overcome even the worst threats.

The Galaxy Investigation

Every player will start in a different star map (with a different star distribution) and will be able to explore it freely. This way every player will have a different game experience. Little by little, we will have to study different stars and comets in Andromeda, searching for planets that we can visit to progress in our investigation.



Use your trusty DNA-Gun to collect and fuse the DNA of your enemies, creating new and powerful shots. There are dozens of different combinations and every new shot has different properties that will help you advance on your adventure, exterminate the strongest enemies and even solve puzzles and logic tests.


Why jump when you can fly? Use and upgrade your Jetpack to explore the different planets of Andromeda, but remember...not all planets have the same gravity!


The meteorological conditions won’t always be on your side, that is why you will need to find and build different armors to be able to access and locate all secrets that Andromeda hides. Different planets will require different types of armor for different threats.

Lore / History


Set in the year 5.135 NT (3.870.053.315 AD), it has been millions of years since the Earth became uninhabitable and thus humans now live scattered in different colonies around the Milky Way. Wars between the different species, federations and colonies have made the galaxy a constant war zone where peace is but a flimsy mirage created by the governments to control the population. In this environment of pure conflict many have started to venture in the unknown galaxy of Andromeda (which is getting closer to the Milky Way and will eventually, in a future, fuse with it), in search for new knowledge, resources or just a place to live.

Max Weaver

Shoot first, ask questions later. Max Weaver, bounty hunter and pilot of Atila-1, does not lose time with silly stuff. For the right price crossing half the galaxy and breaking all the necessary dogmas is not an issue for Max. However, this carefree and chaotic life have led to a cycle of debts, crimes, favors and vendettas that torment and chase our main character around every corner.

Not all adventures start with heroic deeds and this one is not an exception. Max Weaver’s mission is simple: find a group of missing scientists that were in the middle of an investigation project in Andromeda. An easy, boring and quick mission (locate a bunch of corpses and steal anything valuable), or so it seemed...for what was expected to be an easy, boring and quick mission will end up becoming the worst and deadliest nightmare ever lived and seen.


Gameplay-wise Andromeda is inspired by all the game influences that we've had during our childhood. It’s mainly inspired by those 8-bits games that we all grew with and the experience from the arcade machine games. Games that would test their gamers, being a nice challenge with a gameplay that would surprise and entertain at the same time.

However not everything is gameplay, we value the plot as a key component of a video game, specially an exploration and investigation game. That’s why we did our homework and we have been nurtured from big literature Sci-Fi titles to write Andromeda’s script. Dune from Frank Herbert, Hyperion from Dan Simmons, Brave New World from Aldous Huxley, 1984 from George Orwell, Foundation from Isaac Asimov and of course many novels from Jules Verne. We can’t leave aside classic cinematographic titles such as Alien, Cube, Blade Runner, Solaris or The thing.

The Metroidvania genre has been mistreated a lot during the last years. The big titles that we all knew have degenerated in three-dimensional games that have lost the essence of what made them big classics and in some cases their creators have even forgotten them. We can’t revive the big titles but we can try to honour their memory by creating, together with you, one of the best Metroidvania ever and prove to the big companies that this genre is more alive than ever.


What is up with the "There is no god up here" reference?

The "no god up here" is not a reference to God as it may look like. The game is set on a very distant future, in a completely different galaxy and the "no god up here" reference it's just to imply that you (the main character) are alone and helpless. You are in a different galaxy, all on your own so we feel that it challenges your determination to make it through all the hardships that may come.

It is no on way meant to question the existence of God. It is a mere expression for the players to have the feeling and make it through everything and come victorious at the end.

We do not wish to insult you, and if we have, we are truly sorry for it! This game is entirely a work of fiction.

We hope this clears things up a bit for you .

I want to contact Andromeda’s Team. How can I do it?

The easiest way right now is to mail us at We will leave no email unanswered! Leave a comment in Kickstarter, ITCH.IO or our social networks too. We will do our best to answer as many messages and comments as humanly possible, since the community is for us a key element of game development. Love it or hate it we want your opinion!

Why only 4 languages? Will you translate Andromeda to my language?

For now, with our personal money and time, we have been able to translate it to only these 4 languages: English, Spanish, Italian and Russian. We agree that the more languages we have the more people that will be able to enjoy Andromeda. We will try that the final version is available in as many languages as possible.

Well, your Kickstarter seems to have stalled. Commiserations.
It's a shame, as this looks to be a potentially good title.
I have no job, so I can not donate anything myself.
