Into the Union (2020)
Into the Union is a homage to classic 2D arcade shooters. Alongside intense action, the game also tells an emotive story of war and betrayal.
Synopsis: Lost beyond the edges of the known galaxy, pilot Jessica Lone, is in a war without rules and on a scale that she has never seen.
On the run from an unforgiving enemy, Jessica has to make a break for freedom. We join her on her mission, to find out what has happended to the rest of her squadron.
The gameplay itself is not unlike other side scrolling shooter contemporaries like R-Type, Galaga and Ikaruga. Utilising the Unity engine and C# programming language, Into the Union was release on Xbox game store. A release for Windows PC and MAC followed in April, same year.
