Press release:
Lille, France, October 23, 2020.
The France-based indie games developer and publisher Augmented Irreality are today very proud and happy to announce that their “Tyrian” inspired top-down shooter “DreadStar: The Quest for Revenge” is now available via Steam for 9,99 USD.

The top-down shooter inspired by Tyrian brings a pumping chiptune soundtrack and pixel-perfect gunplay, while blending in RPG elements, level-ups, skill points and ship upgrades, without putting players through bullet hell.

For that truly authentic retro experience, DreadStar is presented in 4:3 with an old-school CRT mode, with the game releasing with 6 replayable sectors, multiple difficulty settings, leveling, skill points, ship upgrades and numerous customization options. If things get a little too hot to handle, you can always warp out, gear up and get back in there to seek revenge.

Key Features:

Fast shoot ’em up gameplay with epic boss encounters.
4 different ships and 10 different weapons to annihilate your opponents.
Tons of customization options from armors and engines, to shields and special items.
Gain experience, level-ups and skill points to incrementally improve your ship’s strength.
6 replayable sectors filled with unique enemies, bosses and minibosses.
3 difficulty settings for every sector, where you’ll need to improve both your skill and your ship to progress.
Gorgeous pixel art cutscenes and a kick-ass chiptunes soundtrack made on the famed Atari-ST and ZX Spectrum.
A 4:3 display and CRT mode for that authentic retro experience.

DreadStar can be purchased on Steam, here.
