“Any gamer looking for a supremely wild, frenzied and challenging experience should definitely check out Project Root,” said Pablo Testa, Technical Director at OPQAM. “Steam players and hardcore SHMUP fans alike have been waging war against the evil Prometheus Corporation for some time now, so we’re very excited our PlayStation and Xbox gamer friends are today getting that same chance.”
