The Great Rebellion cyberpunk 2D sidescrolling run’n’gun roguelite game smashes onto Linux, Mac, and Windows PC. Thanks to the exceptional creativity of Kvltgames, a talented developer. Available now on Steam with 100% Positive reviews.

Alright, let’s dive into a title that brings a fresh wave into the world of 2D sidescrollers. It’s a cyberpunk setting where you’re not just running and gunning, but you’re also navigating through a maze of challenges. There is also a unique twist – every level you encounter something new, thanks to its random generation.

The backdrop? The Great Rebellion takes place in the year 20XX in a dystopian Europe. A world where a giant corporation, Lucis Lux, owns everything. You’re Human 10.28, who’s pretty much fed up with being just another number in this oppressive system. So, what do you do? You rise up, of course!

Now, The Great Rebellion gameplay is where this cyberpunk 2D sidescrolling run’n’gun roguelite gets engaging. You’ve got your classic 16-bit retro pixel art, which is a nostalgic nod to the old school, but with a modern twist. There’s an array of over 60 weapons to choose from – so whether you’re into lasers or something more explosive, you’ve got options. And the dynamic soundtrack? It’s adjusting to your every move and keeping the adrenaline high.

But some of the level backgrounds and props have been given a unique touch with AI-generated content. The devs started with these AI-created images and then worked their magic to blend them seamlessly into the game’s pixel art style. It’s a unique blend of new-age tech with classic gaming aesthetics.

The The Great Rebellion upgrade system is another highlight. As you progress, you’re not just moving forward, you’re evolving. Plus, unlocking allies and gaining special powers from the spirits of European heroes adds layers to your strategy.

In terms of challenge, it’s got you covered. Whether you’re a casual player or someone who likes the test of permadeath modes, there’s something for everyone. And let’s not forget the replay value – with randomly generated levels, no two play through’s are the same.

The Great Rebellion is a 2D sidescrolling run’n’gun roguelite game that strikes a fantastic balance. While offering players nostalgia and innovation. It’s a journey through a cyberpunk Europe where every play feels fresh, challenging, and most importantly, fun. Available now on Steam for Linux, Mac, and Windows PC. Priced at $19.99 USD / £16.75 / 19,50€.
