Rogue Star Rescue Out Now On Steam Early Access

I’m certainly a little late on this one, but in the beginning of March a new rogue-lite bullet hell shooter with tower defences was released on Steam. The game, titled Rogue Star Rescue from Windsor-based Chute Apps, is currently in Early Access for the next several months where they look to build upon everything.

“Our galaxy is about to be destroyed. A massive Rogue Star has formed from the cosmos and is on a direct collision path. It threatens to vaporize everything. Leaders from planets around the galaxy have assembled a top team of fighters to stop the Rogue Star at all costs. We are the Team.

The evil aliens from a neighboring galaxy see the Rogue Star as an opportunity to destroy their long time rivals. They learn of the Team and rush to their galaxy to their plans while the Rogue Star inches ever closer.”

You can check out the trailer and original press release below. The game can be picked up on Steam for $17.49 CAD.
