Roguelite 360° action-platformer Orbital Bullet available today on Steam Early Access

From Press Release:

Wiesbaden, Germany (April 22, 2021) — German publisher Assemble Entertainment and developer SmokeStab Studio are thrilled to announce today the Early Access launch of their highly-anticipated award-winning rogue-lite shooter Orbital Bullet. Now available on Windows PC via Steam, Orbital Bullet introduces a genre-bending 360° rotating level design, providing a whirling and swirling high-octane guns-blazing action-platforming experience where you’ll need to play a deadly game of “ring-around-the-rosie” in order to outsmart enemies and dodge all manner of propelled perils.

Orbital Bullet is a title that screams ‘instant classic,’ and we’re thrilled to have such a unique and refreshing addition to the beloved genre in our quickly expanding roster,” said Assemble Entertainment CEO Stefan Marcinek. “The game brings something long-desired to the table in the form of fast-paced action and eccentric gameplay paired with distinctive level design and classic rogue-lite merit.”

Orbital Bullet is included in Assemble Entertainment’s massive (and exclusive) publisher sale on Steam, where almost the entire portfolio of indie titles are available for up to 90% off for a limited time. The sale kicks off today at 1:00 PM Eastern.

To celebrate the Early Access release, Assemble Entertainment has unveiled a brand new launch trailer, depicting one of Orbital Bullet’s not-yet-seen level biomes: the Water Planet. In addition to the lush and flourishing Jungle and Cave biomes, the Water Planet introduces new bosses, tricky puzzles, and environmental perplexities.

Orbital Bullet is a multi-award-winning action-platformer that takes the tried-and-true, highly addictive rogue-lite formula and adds a unique twist with a 360° rotating level design. Players can expect fluid, fast-paced gameplay featuring procedurally generated enemies and level elements, with “instant-transmission” upon completion of a stage — keeping the rhythm going and the action flowing! Of course, it wouldn’t be a rogue-lite without a deep skill tree, game-changing body modifications, upgrades, and of course, a diverse range of heavy weaponry with which to dispatch the hordes of enemies keeping you from reaching the next level!
