Rogue Star Rescue
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
ROGUE STAR RESCUE
Bullet Hell Insanity + Tower Defense Strategy. Rogue Star Rescue is a quirky new type of rogue-like shooter. Blast your way through diverse planets while rescuing your teammates and gathering traps for your defense strategy.
A New Kind of Roguelike Shooter. It's time to bring roguelikes to the next level! Rogue Star Rescue is a unique mix of bullet hell roguelike and tower defense games. We're adding strong strategy elements to the all-out insanity of bullet hell shooters. The action is smooth, the gameplay is challenging, the story is complex and nonlinear. It's a game you'll get sucked into, and will end up spending months exploring the multiple intricacies and outcomes. Keeping the game fun well past the 50-hour mark is our core design focus.
Online Co-op! Games like this are better with friends. Connect with our community online to explore the RSR galaxy with up to 4 people simultaneously! You won't find this feature in the other popular roguelite shooters. Progress with your friends and unlock the secrets of the galaxy as a team. Along with exclusive multiplayer content, there will always be something new to discover.
A Breath of Fresh Air. Stylistically we're breaking away from traditional dark-dungeony themes by making bright and accessible retro-style graphics. Do you remember the first time you played Sonic the Hedgehog? We're incorporating that feeling of visual splendor and wonder. It's much more refreshing than crawling around in the same old dank dungeons.
Fight with your Team! You won't be able to stop the Rogue Star alone. Rescue your teammates along the way and they'll fight beside you against the evil aliens. Your quest is interactive and full of hilarious dialogue, not another lonely solo-mission.
The Rogue Star. A massive Rogue Star has formed from the cosmos and is on a direct collision path with us. It threatens to vaporize everything. Leaders from planets around the galaxy have assembled a top team of fighters to stop the Rogue Star at all costs. Choose your own non-linear path through the galaxy and explore each planet carefully. Planets such as Viridi, SpaceStation, SteamPunk, Ice, Desert, Fire, Nuclear Plant, the Haunted, and many more.
Your Choices, Your Ending. Choose which planets to travel to and make important decisions that decide the fate of the galaxy! Depending on the path you take, there are dozens of different outcomes. The Rogue Star can destroy the entire galaxy, be reflected to the enemy's galaxy, swallowed by a black hole, sent far away through a galactic wormhole, and dozens of other hilarious possibilities in between. It's really up to you to make the right decisions based on the outcome you want to see, and who you want to rescue.
Traps and Defense. While exploring each planet you must gather traps and resources to face an epic mini-boss and his waves of minions at the end of each level. Strategically placed traps slow, block, push, spike, burn, freeze and shoot at enemies. Traps can be upgraded to make themselves stronger, and specialized attributes can be chosen based on your player type. Managing trap inventory and usage intelligently is critical to your success in the game, especially during the later levels.
Heroes. Choose from one of the elite team members with a unique set of special abilities, each with a personal drive to save their home planet from annihilation. Unlock new players by achieving specific outcomes.
Level Up! Unlike traditional roguelikes, we've added a persistent leveling up system. With each level you earn attribute points that can improve strength, speed, damage, health, and luck. The more you fight, the more experience points you earn, the stronger you get. Build your player wisely.
Guns and Items. Discover and unlock hundreds of unique items! We're thrilled to present a wide variety of guns from advanced space weaponry, to historical weapons, and everything in between. On top of carrying the main gun, you will have an arsenal of powerful grenades ready at the tap of a button.
Time is ticking, can you stop this galactic doomsday before it's too late?
