Rising Star Games and Kraken Empire announced that highly-stylized shoot ’em up (shmup), Kromaia, is now available for download on Steam for PC.
Kromaia is an immersive journey that mixes technology and myth for an innovative gameplay experience. Players will feel like a small droplet of water in a vast, alien ocean as they explore new worlds protected by giant god-like guardians, filled with ancient temple ruins, and littered with puzzles to solve and treasures to collect.
A truly unique adventure, Kromaia‘s approach to gameplay looks to bring new life to the shmup genre.Providing players with full 360˚ freedom to fly, spin, and shoot changes the traditional style of arcade shmups significantly. Also, Kromaia‘s adaptive AI creates a special kind of emergent gameplay: one that changes variables like enemy speed and formations to offer something new depending on how the game is played. Combine this with several ultra-maneuverable Armors (pilotable ships/vessels), all with different attributes, and a wide range of ancient, alien worlds to explore, and you’ve got a game that changes the genre forever.
