1980s-Inspired HyperParasite Coming to Steam Early Access, EGX Rezzed

Troglobytes Games and Hound Picked Games today announced that HyperParasite would be coming to Steam Early Access.

The twin-stick rogue-lite shooter will launch on the platform on April 3.

Following on from its arrival on Early Access, the fast-paced 1980s-inspired title will be available for a hands-on session at EGX Rezzed, which runs from April 4 to April 6 at the Tobacco Dock in London.

The Spanish-based independent studio revealed that players are able to access sixty different playable character classes, with each one having their own attacks and playstyles.

The shoot ‘em up has players making their way through procedurally generated levels, whether it is in the single-player mode or co-op.

“In HyperParasite, it’s the dude you control that is packed with the boom, no more scrabbling for weaponry and panicking at a boss encounter,” the developer said.

“With sixty different characters to take control of, players may snatch the best host body for the scenario and kick butt!”

According to Troglobytes, HyperParasite’s soundtrack will feature tracks from composer Van Reese and Joe Kataldo, who worked on the music for Odd Tales’ The Last Night.

“We’re finally ready to bring everyone kicking and screaming back to the 1980s with HyperParasite on Steam Early Access,” says Saverio Caporusso, the CEO of Trologbytes.

“It’s now available for $8.99 for everyone to enjoy and give us feedback via the Steam forums and our Discord channel!

“We’re thrilled to also announce we’ll be at EGX Rezzed where members of the press, influencers and fans of the ‘80s can get hands-on with HyperParasite.”
