Tachyon Project Bursts onto Wii U

Shoot! Explode! Destroy! You know you want to… especially when you have twin-stick controls and aliens to direct all that pent-up energy toward. We love blowing things up, and we love watching explosions as they happen… even better when it happens in space!

Eclipse Games, who previously brought Super Toy Cars to the Wii U eShop, is fulfilling all those alien-blasting desires with Tachyon Project on the Wii U (and other systems). It’s described as a “story-driven twin stick shooter,” but of course there’s much more to it than just that:

In Tachyon Project you take control of Ada, a computer program that was created to hack into the most secure places on Earth and has taken consciousness. After some shocking events she’s left alone ‘in the wild’. She’ll have to hack into some of the hardest computers on Earth to find out what happened to her creators. For Ada, hacking is basically fighting a bunch of enemy programs that try to spot her and identify her. She’ll have a number of weapons at her disposal. As she progresses in her quest she’ll find harder and more sophisticated enemy programs to battle but she’ll also unlock new and more powerful weapons to aid in her.”

The game will feature ten levels with six progressive waves of enemies per level. Players will also experience three challenge levels with four-person local multiplayer, over 30 types of enemies, four bosses, and plenty ‘o weapons.

Sadly for all of us, we don’t have a trailer yet to see how this will all play out—though the screenshots look pretty darn good. Stay tuned on this one, we’ll get more details soon (as assume, since its planned release is this July).
