Project Root brings punishing shmup goodness to Xbox One
ID@Xbox continues its indie march with Project Root, a frenetic modern shmup (shoot 'em up) that promises to be equal parts challenging and fun.
Project Root is the work of OPQAM and Reverb Triple XP, and is available now on Xbox One.
Shmups and their bullet hell sub-genre tasks players to guide a small vehicle through a hailstorm of enemies and projectiles, often throwing other hazards and larger enemies into the mix as well.
OPQAM Technical Director Pablo Testa describes Project Root thusly:
Project Root is a modernised take on the genre, providing varied shmup gameplay across 8 free-roaming open levels, featuring numerous hazard and enemy types, in addition to light RPG upgrade elements.
Project Root is available now on Xbox One, PS4 and PSVita, carrying a discount for Xbox Live Gold members and cross-buy for PS4 / PSVita owners.
Buy Project Root for Xbox One: $9.99 and $6.99 on Xbox Games with Gold
