FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
HONG KONG — BOOM COMPANY, the latest sci-fi video game from Burt's Games, launches on Kickstarter
 
Boom Company brings a new dimension to top-down space shooters, combining twin-stick, high-octane aerial combat with in-mission upgrades and other roguelite mechanics.
 
Created for PCs and all major consoles, BoomCo lets players take command of a powerful prototype ship as part of a crew of freelance mercenaries taking myriad odd jobs from rival corporate factions.
 
Already a year into its development, BoomCo takes inspiration from such games as Dead Cells, Hades, Luftrausers, and Nova Drift, as well as science fiction anime Cowboy Bebop and Space Dandy.
 
Experienced creator Burton Wong sought to integrate the fun of fast-paced, momentum-based dogfighting with an extensive customization system. “I wanted to complement gamers' different playstyles … against a vast and outlandish interstellar backdrop,” said Burton. “I think we’ve created a great next-level shoot 'em up,  filled with out-of-this-world characters”.
 
BoomCo boasts a distinct look and feel with sleek, stylized animation and high-quality tactile control. Players get to enjoy optimal drift-and-drag maneuverability for dealing with and dishing out multidirectional hostility.

 
The BoomCo campaign launched on 12 October 2021 and will run for 30 days, with a goal of HK$ 150,000 (Approx $19,275). Early Bird perks include a Stargazer reward with access to the Digital Edition and the Boom Company: Mini-Mission Demo  for HK$120 (Approx $16) and delivery worldwide.
