Tachyon Project released on PS4 Today

Tachyon Project is an action packed dual-stick shooter where we’ve taken concepts from the classic shoot’em up genre and adapted them. The player will find the gameplay versatility and speed traditional to dual-stick shooters but with the weapons and enemies diversity normally found in shoot’em ups, providing a more varied and interesting gameplay. But gameplay innovations are not limited to weapon and enemy design but you’ll also be able to play a new stealth game mode.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
