Project AETHER Next Month

Developer Sleepy Spider Studio announces a February 24th release date for Project AETHER, their crowdfunded twin-stick shooter. They celebrate the news with a new Announcement Trailer showing off gameplay in the bullet hell style you will aether love or hate. Here's word on the game, which will be released on Steam:
Project AETHER is a high-octane love letter to retro twin-stick bullet hell games, as well as the classic giant-mech genre of anime series.

When a mysterious alien force invades from the depths of space, players take control of the prototype AETHER mech unit in an attempt to fight off the advancing threat.

Featuring a customisable loadout comprising of a combination of the player's choice of two swappable ranged weapons and a melee sabre, any AETHER pilot will have the tools needed to take out enemies at both a long and short range. Truly skilled pilots will need to learn to harness the power of all of their available weapons to take down the enigmatic invaders.

Players will battle invading fleets and their giant boss ships across 9 levels, each with their own unique threats. Success will only be assured if quick reflexes and tactical thinking are used in combination with the unique abilities afforded by the AETHER unit.
