Now LIVE on Kickstarter & Steam Greenlight: 'The Tale of ALLTYNEX' Epic Shooting Trilogy

Kickstarted by Nyu Media TODAY: English localizations of Japan’s much-loved and highly respected indie shooting game series, The Tale of ALLTYNEX by Japanese indie dev SITER SKAIN. Comprised of KAMUIRefleX and ALLTYNEX Second, this trilogy of games pits brain-transplanted fighter craft,reflective shield technology, and blade-based melee attacks against militarized global government,genocidal A.I.and ancient alien weapons of mass destruction!

Western gamers will finally be able to fully enjoy the unique mechanics, carefully crafted play experiences, focus on destructive fun, dramatic presentation and engaging score attack gameplay which have made the ALLTYNEX games renowned in Japan. Sci-fi fans will also enjoy the backdrop to the action, which is a millennium-spanning saga which encompasses global civil war, an ages old alien threat and humanity in need of salvation as it teeters on the edge of extinction.
What the shmup aficionados say:

"Taito took the torch to their Layer Section / Ray- series, handed it to SITER SKAIN, and said, "Hey man, you got this." Lock-ons 'n homing lasers ahoy!" – DJ Incompetent, @shmups

"SITER SKAIN's games are quite possibly the best doujin shmups ever created" - Ghegs, Shmups Forum
"The indie answer to Taito's classic Rayforce series" - Dominic Tarason, IndieStatik

The purpose of the Kickstarter is to support the final stages of the localization work and to help promote the games on release. Reward tiers for contributors include the games, soundtracks, plushies, dakimakura, and a trip to the Winter Comiket event in Tokyo this December to hang with us and meet some of the best of indie developers in person! Stretch goals are also in place that will deliver limited runs of collectible physical editions of the games.

Please check out The Tale of ALLTYNEX Kickstarter page and the Steam Greenlight page for a plethora of information and screenshots.
