[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

Headup Games and Pixel Perfex announce today's release of Earth Atlantis on Steam for $14.99, €14.99, £11.99. For the first week, there is also a release discount with 20% off.

In Earth Atlantis, mankind's main capitals are destroyed and lie deep down at the bottom of the sea as ruins of steel and stone. The machines have found their place in this new environment and now roam the seas as terrifying hybrids of creatures and machines.

The fierce post-apocalyptic submarine shoot 'em up features the style of old sketches, reminiscent of a time, when sea exploration just began and the sea was believed to be inhabited by equally fantastic and dangerous creatures. Now, once again, the world has to be discovered. Climb on board one of four individual submarines, each with different advantages and weaponry, and hunt down huge bosses in fierce battles.

Re-balanced gameplay mechanics, resulting from user feedback from the earlier console versions, make Earth Atlantis more enjoyable than ever: Retro fans will be happy to hear that they can also use the d-pad to steer their ship on their controller, while many game elements are now much more intuitive and easy to use for non-hardcore shooter players as well.

Rediscover humankind's sunken world and dive into the new ancient world of Earth Atlantis now. To get a look at its extra-ordinary visual style in motion, check out its action-packed Steam Announcement Trailer.
