Vancouver, Canada - March 20, 2012 - Independent game developer Eden Industries has announced that their unique action game about controlling a wave of light is now available on Steam.
Navigate the beauty and hazards of the solar system while riding on a wave of light in this innovative arcade-action game. On your journey to restore light to a dying galaxy being consumed by a Singularity, you'll travel from Pluto to the Sun and interact with a wide variety of strange objects, and mind-bending situations that will affect the path of your wave, and the world around you, in interesting ways.
Simple to play but difficult to master, Waveform combines the pure fun of retro arcade titles with all the bells and whistles of modern games. Colorful graphics and a retro-symphonic soundtrack accompany over 100 levels of challenge and excitement full of mysterious and fun objects like Wormholes, Particle Accelerators, and the enigmatic Space Squids of Venus!
