Play the demo today and join the fight in this unique vertical shooter.

CALGARY, Canada  – Feb. 8, 2018 – Technolites, the frantic shoot ‘em up from Canadian studio zugalu, is now on Kickstarter seeking $24,674 USD ($31,000 CAD) in completion funds! Featuring an original story with fully-voiced characters and a ton of ship customization options, Technolites thoroughly updates the genre while maintaining the action-packed arcade gameplay made legendary by ‘80s classics such as Xevious, 1942, and Terra Cresta.

Less than one week in, zugalu has already raised nearly $8,000 from backers. (The campaign is set to end on Sunday, March 18.) If funded, Technolites is expected to launch in Q4 2018. Get a preview of the game’s fully-customizable spaceships and arcade combat by downloading the official demo from Game Jolt and itch.io today!

Technolites re-imagines the top-down shooter with an engaging narrative featuring multiple endings. Set in the near future, humankind has begun to explore outer space in search of new worlds. A wayward mission to Jupiter’s moon Europa uncovers an ancient alien spacecraft – and four United Earth Space Alliance (UESA) astronauts are tasked with perhaps the greatest challenge in the universe: Defeat a seemingly endless horde armed to the teeth with unknown weaponry. If the astronauts fail, the Earth they once knew will be forever lost…

Join the UESA team on their most important mission yet as they crisscross the solar system and galaxies to wipe out this new, horrifying threat. Unlike other shoot ‘em ups, you’ll be able to build your own ship from scratch and outfit it with dozens of unique parts and weapons. Customizing your ship allows you to decide how you want to play: Build a small-yet-deadly ship allowing you to quickly dash and blast enemies – or craft an all-powerful, fully-loaded juggernaut able to give (and take) a mighty beating.

Fly your new spacecraft through 7 unique worlds featuring 20 detailed levels and blast enemies any way you see fit. For even more firepower, you can fight alongside a friend via online co-op, combine more than 500 weapon choices, and level up your crew of characters.

“The first game I ever played on PC was Raptor: Call of the Shadows for MS-DOS on my uncle’s laptop. It’s what made me fall in love with PC gaming,” says Branden Sloane, co-founder and chief executive officer of zugalu. “For our first PC release, I wanted to pay tribute to that game and expand upon what I enjoyed most about it: earning credits and using them to purchase upgrades for your ship – which is exactly what we’ve done with Technolites, but on an even greater scale.”

“Not only does Technolites include plenty of customization choices, the game also features an epic storyline complete with animation and professional voice actors,” says Greg Forsyth, co-founder and vice president of zugalu. “We look forward to sharing Technolites with our backers – and then the rest of the world!”

Key features:
Build your own ship from the ground up – and then equip it with your favorite weapons and upgrades.
– Enjoy fully-voiced, animated cutscenes with an awesome narrative to boot.
– Combine more than 500+ weapons.
– Unlock multiple endings.
– Soar through 7 unique worlds and 20 hand-crafted levels.

– Level up your characters for new effects.
– Fight alongside a friend in online co-op gameplay.
– Play on your desktop or mobile device – and take your save game with you on the go.
