Play as Darius Cayne in Adaeus: Rogue Planet, a 2D sci-fi Metroidvania roguelike platformer with an emphasis on RPG elements and tight platforming action. Investigate the appearance of a new power source in order to save your colony. Customize your attacks with mod chips, solve environmental puzzles, brave challenge rooms, and uncover the secrets of the rogue planet, Adaeus.

Key Features:
  • Customize your skills and mix/match/compound attacks.
  • Enjoy ultra-tight platformer controls (Gamepad Support/Key Mapping).
  • Experiment with a variety of equipment, upgrades, and combat playstyles.
  • Solve interactive environment/puzzles with skills earned in-game.
Inspired by the Castlevania franchise and 2015’s indie hit Axiom Verge, Adaeus will have you explore a world where even the plants are deadly -- and menacing monsters lie in waiting at every turn. Can you survive long enough to uncover the secrets of Adaeus?

The Story So Far
Cut off from the rest of galactic civilization, Adaeus is a bloodthirsty planet filled with dangerous fauna, environmental hazards, and limited natural resources. Darius Cayne, an accomplished militiaman, has been tasked with investigating a new power source that could save his dying colony; however, what he finds is beyond anything he could’ve ever imagined. Equipped with his high-tech power suit and blaster, Cayne must hack, slash, and shoot his way through Adaeus’ unrelenting environments to make it back home and save his colony.

To even the odds, the hero in Adaeus has access to an advanced (and upgradeable) research lab. Use Nanites scattered around the levels -- and Credits -- to modify the suit and upgrade your equipment. Featuring more than 50 different upgrades -- everything from increasing health and strength to increasing the amount of ordnance you can carry -- the suit is the perfect tool to face the many dangers of Adaeus.

The game includes a number of brutal enemies, such as:
  • Spiked Dracaenikes that spring up out of the ground
  • Automated Drilling Androids armed with laser blasters
  • Rapid Fire Turrets that are nearly impossible to avoid
  • Other enemies include six legged, multi-eyed alien bears... and poisonous projectile spewing bees!
Be ready for a fight at the end of each level. Adaeus includes end-level bosses -- including the massive Noxious Plant that shoots Dracaenikes whenever it’s damaged. Furthermore, each level is randomized -- ensuring that no two playthroughs will ever be the same.

Is there any possibility of a review copy of this game? I could give some great feedback and an honest review with praise where its due and constructive criticism.

I feel like i need to make this clear, im not a scammer and i dont want payment to review the game, all i want is the game to review in the first place, giving me something to do is payment enough :) lol

Nice :D thanks for the reply. once again best of luck and can't wait to play :)

@serial_iller - There's no way we'd let that feature escape this game, haha. We've had a couple iterations of a map system and we're currently implementing the best version.

Thanks for the support!
serial_iller Nov 6, 2016 @ 2:34pm 
holy shit man this looks great. one request however, if it isn't already implemented, PLEASE make sure this game has a map! I have played an astonishing number of games recently that should but don't have some kind of map. for a game like this it will likely be imperative. anyways sorry for the mini rant, i wish you great luck with this game and can't wait to play it!
