Another month, another announcement!
We’ve always been a lover of arcade shooters, there’s no denying it. So when Spanish developer Kraken Empire presented the most exhilarating, visually stunning spin on the classic genre, we almost wet ourselves with excitement.
Kromaia would kindly ask you to take everything you know about flying, shooting and dodging and put it in the bin. It’s time to relearn these skills in a universe with six degrees of freedom, advanced and adapting AI and an addictive combat system which allows you to play to your strengths. An extraordinary amount of work and technology has gone into making a shooter which is truly expanding the boundaries of such a genre.
The Kraken is certainly going to make a splash.

RISING STAR GAMES AND KRAKEN EMPIRE JOIN FORCES FOR THE RELEASE OF KROMAIA
Award-winning arcade shooter comes to PC via digital release in 2014
GOTHENBURG, SWEDEN – 26 June 2014 – With the ink drying on its new partnership with Spanish developer Kraken Empire, Rising Star Games has expanded its digital release schedule for 2014 to include Kromaia – a revolutionary arcade shoot-‘em-up coming to Steam and other digital PC retailers later this year.
As frantic as it is beautiful, Kromaia’s approach to gameplay and AI revolutionizes the shoot-‘em-up concept in a variety of ways. Giving players full 360˚ freedom while insane enemy swarms and giant guardians attack changes the traditional style of arcade shooting significantly. Also, 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 you play. Combine this with ultra-manoeuvrable ships and a wide range of worlds to explore, and you’ve got a shoot-‘em-up that changes the genre forever.
“Our history with arcade shooters is second to none, so partnering with Kraken Empire to release Kromaia makes perfect sense for Rising Star Games,” said Martin Defries, Managing Director of Rising Star Games. “It’s not just a reinvention for the genre, but a stunningly beautiful one to boot and we know that everyone – both shoot-‘em-up newcomers and long-time fans of the genre – is going to love it to pieces.”
“We’re really excited about working with Rising Star Games to release Kromaia,” said Antonio Iglesias, co-founder of Kraken Empire. “A lot of work has gone into making Kromaia and we know that that with their help, it’s going to be the success that we always hoped it would be.”
