Nex Machina from Housemarque is finally here!

The game that started as the "Jarvis Project" a few years back is now available on PS4 and PC as "Nex Machina"

Developed by the team that created Resogun, and in collaboration with Eugene Jarvis (Robotron, Smash TV), Nex Machina is an intense arcade shooter that blends the best of coin-op skillful gameplay and modern cutting edge voxel tech.

Traveling through a diverse alternate universe where robots have taken over and humans have an unhealthy symbiosis with their screened devices, in Nex Machina you start in a "Techno Forest" and then make your way through an ever-increasing robot infestation as you attempt to save humanity.

Additionally, particle explosions and neon lights are always better with a great soundtrack, provided by Ari Pulkkinen (RESOGUN), who returns to helm an adrenaline-fueled set of tracks that blend synthwave and retro game influences.

KEY FEATURES:

Nex Machina marks the first self-published IP by the 23-year-old Finnish developer, with lead game design by Harry Krueger (RESOGUN) and Eugene Jarvis from Raw Thrills acting as Creative Consultant.
