    Rising Star Games and Kraken Empire to Release Kromaia Ω on PS4™ System This Fall

    – Take revenge on ancient gods and reveal the ultimate truth in this 360˚ free-roaming shoot-’em up game –

    Rising Star Games today announced that they have partnered with Spain-based developer, Kraken Empire to release a physical boxed edition and digital edition of the highly-stylized shoot ’em up (shmup) game, Kromaia Ω, on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system this fall.

    Kromaia Ω is a highly-immersive shmup; a journey that is quite unlike any other that mixes technology and myth for an innovative gameplay experience. Players will explore new worlds protected by giant god-like guardians, filled with ancient temple ruins, and littered with puzzles to solve and treasures to collect.

    A truly unique adventure, Kromaia‘s approach to gameplay looks to bring new life to the shmup genre. Providing players with full 360˚ freedom to fly, spin, and shoot changes the traditional style of arcade shmups significantly. Also, Kromaia‘s adaptive AI creates a special kind of emergent gameplay: one that changes variables like enemy speed and formations to offer new, uniquely tailored experiences depending on how the game is played. Combine this with several ultra-maneuverable Armors (pilotable ships/vessels), all with different attributes, and a wide range of ancient, alien worlds to explore, and players have a game that changes the genre forever.

    Kromaia Ω Features:

    • Interact with hundreds of physical objects, like massive asteroids, ancient temple ruins, puzzles, treasure, and fight dozens of on-screen enemies at once
    • Highly destructible worlds with their own rules and law of physics
    • Adaptive AI – Artificial intelligence based on independent simple brains that cooperate creating emergent behaviors
    • Pilot several different Armors, each with unique weapons, attributes, and philosophies, plus an all-new armor exclusive to Kromaia Ω
    • Multiple gameplay modes including “Story,” “Score Attack,” and new “Pure Mode
    • Four levels of difficulty to test players of all skill levels
    • Online leaderboards to show the rest of the shmup world you mean business
    • Two-player local co-op that let’s one player pilot while the other takes control of the weapon systems

    Both physical and digital editions of Kromaia Ω will be released on PS4™ this fall. For more information and insight on the story and lore of Kromaia, please visit the official micro-site: http://www.krakenempire.com/kromaia
