Spawn Point releases Gerty for Windows, Linux and macOS
Challenge yourself against aliens in an engaging top-down rogue-lite shooter
By: Spawn Point
The game takes place on a planet Gerty I, where mining operations are halted by an alien attack. The player, armed to the teeth, must fight back the alien invasion pouring out from the depths of the mines and find the root of the problem. The aliens can be engaged in several ways. Players can go fast along tunnel paths but may risk themselves to a sudden surprise just around the corner. Players can also carve or blast their way through the rock in the fully destructible environment, which can be tactically utilized against alien enemies.
In early access release, Gerty supports up to four players local co-op, which opens up possibilities from squad tactics to a full-blown, full-screen mayhem. At launch, Gerty presents four distinct character options each with their own playstyle and unique skills. Players are able to further customize their gameplay with perks and purchasable gear of which can be obtained by first gathering Juice from crystal pockets scattered in the mines. As the player advances deeper, more powerful weapons and defenses are needed to avoid permanent death.
"Based on the feedback of many different people, I am happy that we have managed to create a solid and engaging core experience for our early access release" says the project lead Risto Ihalainen. "During early access, we plan to add more awesome content to the game."
While many players might choose to explore the infested mines with a keyboard and a mouse, Gerty is perfectly suited for controller setups as well. The game has full controller support. Gerty's Early Access standard price is $16.99 (14.99€, £13.49, ₽399, ¥1,730, CDN$19.49, A$23.95) and there's a 10% release discount at launch.
