Project AETHER: First Contact is a giant mech twin-stick shooter game.
When a mysterious alien force invades from beyond the stars, players must take control of the prototype AETHER mech unit in an attempt to fight off the advancing threat.
Featuring a customizable loadout comprising of a combination of the player’s choice of two swappable ranged weapons, and a melee sabre, AETHER pilots will have everything needed to take out threats from all ranges, but truly skilled pilots will need to learn to harness the power of all of their available weapons to take down the unknown threat unharmed.
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.
