PositronX Released

PositronX is out of Early Access and is now officially available on GOG.com and Steam, offering a roguelite shooter for Windows. Romanian developer Scorpius Games promises "strategic fast paced combat, creative time and space mechanics, detailed graphics and phoenix-like rising from the ashes as players blast their way through the always new algorithmically generated levels against the killer Machine Swarms." Here's the Launch Trailer and here's more on the game and how the release edition differs after the conclusion of Early Access:
The key to success in PositronX revolves around adapting to your environment. Rooms are algorithmically generated from a pool of predefined constructs and since death is permanent every play through presents a new challenge. With no environmental recall to assist you, players will always face a brand new industrial dungeon filled with Machine Swarm waiting around every corner with lethal ambition. Dying comes easy but with each fall, you can rise again stronger using scores of new loot and implants to your benefit. These implants bestow abilities that will allow players to turn the fire fight to their favour through altering time and space, summoning minions to your cause, shrinking in size, deploying decoys among others. These are all in addition to the base techniques each character has such as wall running to outmanoeuvre their opponents, the ability to slow down, stop or rewind time, to soar above their enemies, use telekinesis to stop bullets inflight before flinging them back at your adversaries and even to teleport across vast spaces in an instant.

Choose between seven different playable characters with their own unique abilities and load out with a cache of weapons, all upgradable, as you shoot your way through every stage. PositronX’s movement mechanics and retro industrial aesthetic compliment the perfect combination of 90s shooter gameplay akin to Quake 2 & Descent with a roguelite design to form a highly combative, addictively re-playable experience.

PositronX leaves Early Access fully loaded with added extras: A new stage will be added at launch in addition to the current three stages. Three new characters join the current roster: Quark - a silent but deadly assassin, Neutron - a devastating damage dealer and Graviton - a master of Time. The arsenal at your disposal has increased with two new weapons to unload on your opponents: the Core gun and Time gun. All of this will be needed and more as you finally come face to face with the game's big final boss - The Machina.

I've been enjoying this game since the EA release. The dev listened to feedback over the years and has made a really fun, good looking and playing rouge-lite FPS. Really hope the game gets some attention and love from streamers and gamers because it's very well made overall. The new characters, I can't wait to unlock them and see the new weapons as well.
