Beta Shout-Out: Nex Machina

Arcade Carnage

A competitive arcade twin-stick shooter, Nex Machina is the next contender in fast-paced, carnage driven bullet-hell awesomeness being developed by legendary creator Eugene Jarvis and top-notch Finland company Housemarque. The game is set in a new era where robots have transcended humanity in intelligence and have decided to turn on their former masters and launch an eradication plan against all humans. It is the classic cyberpunk conflict where you play the lone savior fighting your way through a mechanical onslaught in order to rescue humanity from the threat of total annihilation.

Blazing Fast Bullet Storm

As the spiritual successor of games such as Smash TV and Resogun, Nex Machina will see you facing off against hundreds of enemies while strafing and dodging across the map to avoid a gruesome and untimely end. Panic-fire your way to glory and destroy everything in your path in this high-octane death trap full of power-ups, traps, and endless enemies.

You will want to bring along plenty of skill, reflexes and wit, in order to rack up the highest score possible. The developers have created this one with the thought of competition in mind and will be hosting ranked tournaments and online challenges alongside an online leader-board and spectator mode so that players can pit their skills against one another.

Besides it’s clear game-play allure, Nex Machina also features some truly awe-inspiring graphics displaying plenty of dazzling explosions and lighting effects on top of a gorgeous voxel-based art style. Not only that, intense anime-style cut-scenes add a great deal of character and immersion to the story and play-style.

Beta Sign-Up

If you’d like to have a chance at testing out the game for its rapidly approaching PC launch, you can throw your name into the hat here and cross your fingers. I am looking forward to being able to try this one out and will be watching my email very closely until the Beta starts on April 21st.

Also, don’t forget to pay your respects to the developers and you can check out the official game-play video on YouTube or on Steam.
