Release date: Late 2015
Dateline: Earth, 1999. An unprovoked alien invasion is underway. You, a total badass, don't really appreciate it. In fact, you're downright outraged. You won't stand for it. You call up a couple of your badass friends, they concur. You pack up some essentials--guns, cigars, whiskey--and head out into the night. Little do you know that tonight you will make history. This is: Operation Hardcore.

Operation Hardcore is an action-packed 2D side-scrolling shooter inspired by classic twitchy action games of yesteryear, but with modern touches and conveniences.

Game Features:
  • 8 levels of fiery, explosive alien-blasting mayhem
  • 3 playable badasses
  • analog controls for precise 360 degree aiming
  • modern sound design and electronic sound track by Snug
  • intense 3 player local co-op and death match
  • modern particle/atmospheric and lighting effects
  • persistent global score-board
  • multiple difficulty settings, upgrade paths and secret areas
  • achievements and unlockables for the overachieving, enterprising badass

PC release, late 2015. Demo available now: Operation Hardcore demo v0.7[]
