Captain Kaon releases on April 14!
Captain Kaon is a classic 2D gravity shooter, inspired by classic arcade and console games from the 80’s. If you love to relive the retro vibe from the games for Atari, Amiga and Commodore 64, be sure to pick up this title! Captain Kaon is developed by Engage Pixel and will be released on Steam on April 14, and soon on Xbox One.
The game features colorful Amiga-style pixel art graphics and classic twin-stick control mechanics. You’ll maneuver your ship through cave-like environments where you destroy your enemies by shooting them, using a either a controller to steer and aim, or steer with the keyboard and aim with the mouse. Captain Kaon has a non-linear campaign mode where you need to manage resources and carefully select your missions, and can upgrade your ship and weapons.
You are Captain Talia ‘Kaon’ Altaras, a starship captain in an unfortunate position where she needs to suppress a revolt in a mining colony, as the sole gunship pilot in a force with only outdated ships and weaponry. Getting the mining colony back under control will enable the high-tech military force protecting the human colonies to keep fighting an alien threat, by providing them with much needed resources.
