Aliens and roguelites make a killer combo in HYPERGUN this month

Today, NVYVE Studios announced that its roguelite shooter HYPERGUN will be available on August 23, with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions arriving later this fall. The game will include more than 150 weapon attachments in which to dispose of your foes, as well as an odd sense of humor and some over-the-top enemies.

The year is 2038. A highly advanced alien race has occupied planet Earth and the human race is at its breaking point. The fate of our species now depends on DevTech Labs’ top-secret HYPERGUN program: a highly advanced simulation that is designed to create the ultimate weapon to combat the alien oppressors by combining weapon components across countless simulations. Here, players step into the shoes of fearless DevTech Labs intern, Dewey Owens. With nerves of steel and wielding the most questionably effective weapon known to humanity, Dewey spends his spare team sneaking into the DevTech Labs… uhh… labs outside of work hours and facing off against the baddest of the bad in the HYPERGUN program.

  • Create the HYPERGUN – With over 150 weapon modules to collect, no two runs in the simulation will be the same. Each module you pick up will change your weapon in exciting and often questionable ways, all in the name of determining the ultimate weapon to defeat our alien oppressors.

  • Procedural Levels – Fight through increasingly difficult simulated arenas which are randomly generated with each playthrough.

  • Alien Hordes – Take on a host of (simulated) vicious alien invaders, recreated in immaculate detail.

  • Badass Bosses – Throw down against epically powerful bosses at the end of each level to put your skills and weapon to the test.

  • Unlockable Classes and Abilities – Unlock your co-worker’s simulation profiles gaining access to a selection of more than 40 unique abilities giving you the upper hand in alien-destroying combat.

  • Office Politics – Explore the DevTech offices as the intern Dewey Owens, who’s somehow managed to sneak in over the weekend. Even at the end of the world, there’s time to track down passive aggressive post-it notes from coworkers!
