The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild and Studio Aesthesia are releasing Breakpoint. Since this is a more intense twin stick slasher with better weaspons. So that all that you get all the hectic action of a bullet hell. While including the crunchy satisfaction of melee combat. Unlike other twin stick games. There are zero ranged attacks in Breakpoint. Therefore you will have to control the battlefield with a variety of physical attacks. Slice, smash, and crush your way through waves of enemies. Defeating the oncoming swarm. Move and groove your way through each weapon skill tree. Building your powerful AOE attacks to truly level the playing field.
Reach new levels of digital carnage with the upgradable lethality of your weapons. So you can become the ultimate champion and claim the high score. Trying different combos and patterns. You can also check out the highest scoring runs instantly. And see your Breakpoint position on the leaderboard, anywhere in the world! Keep an eye on how your weapons are doing. Because once they break, the explosion can be a major tactical advantage. Similar to classic Astroids, but with bigger and better weapons.
Breakpoint | Release Trailer
“With Breakpoint, we wanted to make a game that feels intensely satisfying to play. We love games with great moment to moment gameplay. We’re unabashedly influenced by titles with great game feel. Like Nuclear Throne from Vlambeer. And we’re highly influenced by games like Geometry Wars or Devil Daggers. Where the player can turn a tense predicament into a huge comeback with knowledge and skill. We really enjoy those moments, and we think players will too.” – Ed Lu from Studio Aesthesia
