Retro, rogue-lite, twin-stick shooter, HyperParasite, has arrived on all major platforms today. Developer Troglobytes Games are excited to unleash it on the world. The game is now available on PC, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4 in North America and Europe. It has a price tag of $17.99, and players will get a launch discount if they get the game before mid-April. For those that get it on the Switch, you can get a 50% discount if you buy directly from publisher, QubicGames. Otherwise, you’ll get the normal 33% launch discount. The game supports English, Italian, German, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, French, Spanish, Japanese, and both Traditional and Simplified Chinese. Here is the HyperParasite launch trailer:

 

In HyperParasite, players are a body-snatching alien with a massive grudge against humanity. They can collect and control a cast of more than 60 different characters. Jump from the body of one host to another as you wreak havoc. The game will throw at you five acts of grungy, procedurally generated levels where secrets abound. The game sets out to create a unique twist on its genre, and has a strong retro 80’s theme. CEO of Trologbytes Games, Saverio Caporusso, commented on the game finally reaching launch day:

“After the success of Early Access on Steam, the Troglobytes Games team are ecstatic at finally releasing the game across all platforms. We hope that players all over the world enjoy being taken back to the sights and sounds of the 80s. Don’t be a dweeb, be bodacious and play HyperParasite now! Get ready to go back to 1980-something, you’re gonna see some serious shit!”

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in his late 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES, SNES, and N64 among others. He loves Nintendo, but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks/bike rides, loves animals, and enjoys thunderstorms (and science in general).

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called Pre-Computer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode (a bare-bones version of BASIC) which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer, which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the Unity 3D game engine (a powerful and easy-to-use engine) and learning 3D modelling in Blender.

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
