Tachyon Project to be released on Switch

The definite version of Tachyon Project will be available on the Switch eShop on January the 25th, 2018

Tachyon Project first released over 2 years ago and is currently available on PC (Steam), Wii U, Xbox One, PS4 and PS Vita. Switch will join the rooster on January the 25th, 2018. Anyway, this version has been improved and treated with extra care to try to fix most of the issues highlighted by reviews and users on the original. 

This is the definitive edition of Tachyon Project. We should've added it to the title we just didn't think of it at the time. Here you have some of the additions to this new version:

  • Improved visuals, particularly in the menus.
  • Support for local multiplayer in story mode (while you could only play local coop in the Challenges).
  • Improved enemy creation FX to make it clearer and avoid 'cheap deaths'.
  • Redesigned many of the first few levels to make them a little bit more interesting.

Tachyon Project is an action-packed dual-stick shooter where we've taken concepts from the classic shoot'em up genre and adapted them. The player will find the gameplay versatility and speed traditional to dual-stick shooters but with the weapons and enemies diversity normally found in shoot'em ups, providing a more varied and interesting gameplay. But gameplay innovations are not limited to weaponand enemy design but you'll also be able to play a new stealth game mode.

In Tachyon Project you take control of Ada, a software program design to hack into the most secure servers in the world. After some rather mysterious events, Ada is thrown out into the internet and she'll have to fight to uncocxzvver the truth about her creators' disappearance.

The narrative is presented through 10 unique levels, each made of 6 progressively challenging waves. Success is rewarded with new weapons and perks that are essential to aid you against increasingly difficult odds and tougher enemies.


  • Story-driven, action-packed dual-stick shooter
  • 6 different weapons, 9 secondary weapons, and 7 perks provide hundreds of combinations for your ship
  • Over 30 different enemy types, including 4 bosses
  • Over 60 different waves in the 10 levels that comprise story mode
  • Innovative stealth gameplay levels and health system
  • Up to 4 players local multiplayer
  • An interesting story, told through hand-drawn cutscenes, drives the gameplay
  • An intense original soundtrack by Tyson Prince, Kevin Murphy, and Toni Ros
Tachyon Project is available on Nintendo Switch for $9.99/€9.99/£7.99.
