2Awesome Studio unique teleportation supercharged shooter Dimension Drive has gotten a release date. The game which is in Early Access now on Steam, will get a full release for PC and Nintendo Switch December 7th, 2017.
To celebrate the news they also released an epic launch trailer. Check it out below.
The game was created by two ex-space engineers who “wanted to design the game they dreamed of while talking to aliens: spaceships, explosions, sci-fi and those arcade memories from their childhood that never left them”.
The universe is composed of infinite dimensions. Many millennia ago, in one of these dimensions, the Ashajuls rose to power. Spaceflight granted them total domination of their galaxy. They rapidly conquered other races, turning them into slaves to further expand their war-machine.
Terror, oppression and desolation reached every corner of the universe. But the Ashajuls wanted more. The discovery of the Dimension Drive allowed them to start a war to conquer all the infinite dimensions of the universe. The Dimension Wars will last forever…
Jackelyne Tywood (a.k.a Jack) is the only survivor of her race, obliterated by the Ashajuls. She was found orbiting planet Vain inside The Manticore when she was only a child along with her personal guardian artificial intelligence, V.E.R.A. The Manticore is the only known ship in the universe with Dimension Drive capability besides the Ashajuls. At the age of 14 she was already the best pilot in Vain’s fleet. The only recollection of her past is a data cube with a recording of her father last words:
“Jack, run! Live, be happy. We love you!”
