p>Houston, November 3rd 2017 -- Indie game studio FrozenCrate released their first game today, a retro arcade-style game, called "Degauss". The game released this morning on Steam for all 3 major desktop platforms: Windows PC, Mac, and Linux/SteamOS.
Degauss is an arcade-style game featuring minimalist graphics and simple gameplay mechanics. It hearkens back to the quarter-driven arcade era of the 80's and sets the tone with a fitting synthwave electronic soundtrack. The pitch black backgrounds are offset by bright glowing geometries that light up the play area, darting from one edge of the screen to the other, and causing a "Game Over" if the player doesn't move out of their path. However, the player chooses a weapon at the beginning of the game to destroy the enemies in a satisfying shower of pixels, and collects upgrades throughout their single-life to better their survival chances against the increasing swarms of enemies.
Like many arcade games of the past, players focus on getting the highest score possible against randomly generated enemies; other game modes are offered, such as the race mode, where players try to reach 1,000,000 points as quickly as possible. The game collects highscores from players around the globe, allowing them to compete for the top scores on a world-wide scale.
Degauss is a simple game that also has a nuanced powerup and score multiplier system, which allows skilled gamers to test and hone different strategies and techniques. Combined with the multitude of weapons and game modes, Degauss offers a bit of fun and challenge for everyone.
