Key Features:
  • Customize your skills and mix/match/compound attacks.
  • Enjoy ultra-tight platformer controls (Gamepad Support/Key Mapping).
  • Experiment with a variety of equipment, upgrades, and combat playstyles.
  • Solve interactive environment/puzzles with skills earned in-game.

Inspired by the Castlevania franchise and 2015's indie hit Axiom Verge, Adaeus will have you explore a world where even the plants are deadly -- and menacing monsters lie in waiting at every turn. Can you survive long enough to uncover the secrets of Adaeus?

The Story So Far:

Cut off from the rest of galactic civilization, Adaeus is a bloodthirsty planet filled with dangerous fauna, environmental hazards, and limited natural resources. Darius Cayne, an accomplished militiaman, has been tasked with investigating a new power source that could save his dying colony; however, what he finds is beyond anything he could’ve ever imagined. Equipped with his high-tech power suit and blaster, Cayne must hack, slash, and shoot his way through Adaeus' unrelenting environments to make it back home and save his colony.


To even the odds, the hero in Adaeus has access to an advanced (and upgradeable) research lab. Use Nanites scattered around the levels -- and Credits -- to modify the suit and upgrade your equipment. Featuring more than 50 different upgrades -- everything from increasing health and strength to increasing the amount of ordnance you can carry -- the suit is the perfect tool to face the many dangers of Adaeus.

The game includes a number of brutal enemies, such as:
  • Spiked Dracaenikes that spring up out of the ground
  • Automated Drilling Androids armed with laser blasters
  • Rapid Fire Turrets that are nearly impossible to avoid
  • Other enemies include six legged, multi-eyed alien bears... and poisonous projectile spewing bees!

Be ready for a fight at the end of each level. Adaeus includes end-level bosses -- including the massive Noxious Plant that shoots Dracaenikes whenever it’s damaged. Furthermore, each level is randomized -- ensuring that no two playthroughs will ever be the same.

Adaeus is Greenlit!

Thanks to you all, we have been greenlit and it only took us 10 days to do so! We're super appreciative of each and every yes vote we got, and we'd like to thank all that voted for us.

We've got one more feature to flesh out completely (the map system) before we release this into the wild in Early Access format. We hope that some of you will join us in Early Access, tell us what you do and don't like, what you think works well and what needs improvement before we call it finished.

Also during the course of Early Access we will be adding more enemies/bosses, music/sound effects, and more shit to get you dead in game. The money raised via Early Access will be put directly back into the game to foot the bill for extra enemies, animations and artwork in general (that stuff is expensive).

So once again, THANK YOU, and we will see you shortly in Early Access format!
