Upcoming indie action shooter by Squishy Games, Rogue Invader brings back a rather nostalgic atmosphere in its gameplay. Gameplay resembles 1-Bit black and white old-school games, with modern touches and HD graphics.
Rogue Invader will be releasing on PC on Feb. 25, 2021, and will be available for under $20 according to the developer.
In Rogue Invader you control an elite soldier who was part of a Terran invasion fleet, fighting against the Zenos who had attacked Terran colonies. Following giant space battles, you arrive at their homeworld with an invasion army, but no supply ships to take them down. Instead, all you have is a pistol and a single drop-ship and thus begins your attempt to destroy the alien menace. You send down one soldier at a time, with the aim to accumulate supplies that you can use to arm future soldiers and destroy some of the fortifications.
Rogue Invader, from what we’ve seen, appears to lean into some of the meta-game cross-run progression and the run-based nature of these games, with levels having some degree of permanence on elements you can destroy, along with the procedural generation that all games in this genre.
- 24 weapon types, including customizable guns and airstrikes
- 1-bit graphics throughout, created at 720p resolution
- Rogue-lite: static and procedural levels
- Persistent damage: destroyed objects are rebuilt over time
- Multiple enemy classes, mini-bosses, and side quests
- And much more!
Here’s everything about the game in the words of the developers:
In Rogue Invader, YOU are the invader attacking the alien horde in this genre-flipping roguelite shooter. Game-play resembles 1-Bit black and white old-school games, with modern touches and HD graphics.
Twenty years ago, the Zenos began invading terran colonies, leaving a trail of death and tears in their wake. Terrans fought back, one planet at a time, while building a fleet to stab at the Zeno home-world.
You arrive with that fleet, just after a series of massive space battles in which all supply ships have been destroyed. You are left with a huge invasion army but no supplies to invade with other than one drop-pod, and one pistol.
Your standing orders are clear: END THIS WAR!
