PRESS RELEASE – 28/01/2022

For immediate release on January 28th

Hyper Productions is pleased to announce release of Hyper-5, a cinematic shmup inspired by classics from the “golden era” of the 90’s.  Responding to a distress beacon, deep space scout ship Hyper-5 is drawn into a terrifying battle with an unknown enemy. Will Hyper-5 survive its encounter on planet 4GDT?

The game features five unique environments each with their own challenges. Battle in air, over land and underwater. There are over forty different kinds of enemy, including five unique bosses. Return to the action to conquer the enemy and the clock in two bonus Time Trial missions!

A novel in-game challenge system is used to unlock over twenty different weapon systems, as well as ship upgrades, gallery entries and Steam achievements. Hyper-5 suits all skill levels offering both Progression and Precision play styles. Experience a cinematic story line and discover the fate of Hyper-5. Challenge yourself in Arcade Mode and earn your rank in the online global leaderboard.

Both platforms have available a free demo download and the full game includes a high-quality audio soundtrack to enjoy as well.
