Description

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 100-hour mark is our core design focus.

History

The development of Rogue Star Rescue started in October 2018. The core mechanics were built in four months and the alpha version of the game was released on March 8, 2019. Rogue Star Rescue left Early Access on February 4, 2021. Along with Steam, HumbleBundle, and itch.io, the game will also be available on the major consoles (Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo).
