Description

Aeon Drive is a cyberpunk action platformer set in an alternate-universe Barcelona where time is your worst enemy. Dash through this mad city as fast as you can – and warp your way through time itself! Jack sure knows how to make an entrance. Hailed with a barrage of laser fire the minute she crosses the Earth astrogate, her ship falls in pieces towards the planet. The Dimension Cores of the disintegrating spaceship scatter as it crash-lands right into the massive New Barna sprawl. Jack emerges from the smoking wreck of her ship, wounded and stranded in the middle of a chaotic and hostile city. The locals are not very keen on her kind of tourist, but Jack has no time to explain her arrival. The scattered Dimension Cores have sustained heavy damage on re-entry and are about to go critical. That would obliterate the whole dimension in a time singularity - unless she can locate and bring them all back on time. Fight your way across the city and recover those cores before everything is lost. Not enough time? No problem - recharge your cyberdagger with fragments of time-warping Dimension Cores and buy yourself those few decisive extra seconds. Run out of them and you are on your own - alone in a city where anything and everything, from street gangs to local aliens to the very architecture of the city is hell-bent on stopping you!

History

Aeon Drive is the second game developed by 2Awesome Studio. It follows the adventures of intrepid space pilot Jackelyne immediately after the events of Dimension Drive. Jack is back – this time in a completely different cyberpunk setting and featuring new gameplay. As Jack leaves her wreck of a ship behind to rampage through the cyberpunk alleys of New Barna on foot, she’ll acquire new powers of teleportation and even control over time. Your warping dagger allows you to teleport to anywhere you throw it to, opening up countless possibilities for exploration and creative combat.
