Description

The Anacrusis is a four-player, cooperative first-person shooter set aboard a massive starship stranded at the edge of explored space. Team up with your friends in an infinitely-replayable fight against alien hordes to unlock perks, weapons, and new ways to play that you can share with your team!

History

Starting with a small team of 6 in 2019, The Anacrusis has always been about players working together for a shared goal. Constant playtesting and iterating on user feedback has been the foundation of building out the game and adding features. The Anacrusis is the meeting of modern co-op game design with the vibe of late 60s and early 70s sci-fi television shows and movies. The Anacrusis embraces the optimism represented by the design of that era—smooth curves and crisp line art—despite the apocalyptic setting of a massive alien attack. The design of The Anacrusis is co-op first, meaning every player action in the game is designed to foster cooperation among the players, no matter how diverse their skill or experience level is.
