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.

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.
