FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

WARP-TEK, the latest release from independent games studio AlexHoratio, blasts onto Windows, Mac and Linux on January 31st, 2019

 

What’s WARP-TEK?

 

WARP-TEK is a hyper-colourful bullet-hell space shooter that’s all about frenetic flying, excessive particle explosions...and an overwhelming love of dogs.

 

The game confronts you with the nightmare scenario of any intergalactic fighter pilot - a group of anti-social and almost certainly evil aliens have stolen your beloved dog. Your sacred duty is to punish these pet-napping extraterrestrials with extreme prejudice.

 

This frenzied rescue mission draws on the genre-spanning heritage of the horizontal shoot ‘em up genre with an innovative collectible twist. There are over 25 pieces of alien weaponry to seize from your foes, and with over 20 fiendish bosses standing between you and your canine pal, you’re going to need all the firepower you can get!

 

Key Features:

  • A fresh take on the classic horizontal shooter genre!
  • Over 20 weird and wonderful boss types!
  • Dozens of unique and interesting enemies to obliterate!
  • LOADS of bright colours! Absolutely loads!
  • More than 25 weapons to collect and play with!
  • Obligatory references to celebrated indie games (Squirm, The Misadventures of Melon)!
  • !!!!!!!!!

About AlexHoratio

 

AlexHoratio is a solo game developer from the UK, creating games since 2016. He decided that instead of going to university, he would work on his game development portfolio and publish indie games himself - because he likes it better this way. That being said, he’s open to interviews with the press.

 

Alex has successfully published numerous games on Steam, such as Mass O’ Kyzt and Mushroom: The Ruckus, in addition to over 10 well received non-commercial game projects on Itch.io and GameJolt. He has actively documented his game development process on his YouTube channel, where he regularly uploads videos, in collaboration with Florian Himsl, one of the developers of the original Binding of Isaac.
