Great to see that BatCat Games have released their twin-stick shooter, P-3 Biotic, on PC today.
It is available via:
IndieCity – http://store.indiecity.com/game/P-3-Biotic
and IndieVania – http://www.indievania.com/games/p-3-biotic
P-3 Biotic was released on the Xbox LIVE Indie Games marketplace in January 2012 and since then has been undergoing radical cellular mutations resulting in a PC version with increased graphical fidelity, global leaderboards and achievements, and an expanded and remastered soundtrack.
P-3 Biotic is an intense twin-stick shooter featuring advanced real-time lighting and gorgeous particle effects. Pilot the MK4s nano-ship inside a petri dish against 14 waves of infectious bacteria as they attempt to destroy the Nucleus, a bio-engineered organism growing at the center of the dish.
Use mines and weapon power ups to defeat increasingly tough bacteria, and collect energy dropped by vanquished enemies to keep the Nucleus healthy. Or walk a finer line and use the energy stored in the Nucleus to charge up your weapons, turn your entire ship into a projectile, or unleash a devastating shockwave to wipe out all bacteria. The choice is yours, but the Nucleus must survive.
P-3 Biotic is available now via IndieCity and IndieVania for €2.99.
About BatCat Games
BatCat Games are an award winning indie developer based in Dublin, Ireland, developing games around a set of core principles designed to make immersive games playable in bite-sized chunks.
We respect the value of our players time, and our games reflect this in their carefully considered flow. Our games reward skill over mindless repetition, and we eschew cutesy graphics and adolescent themes in favour of a more mature aesthetic.
In March 2012, BatCat Games were successful in securing funding from Enterprise Ireland under the Competitive Start Fund program, a funding program designed to accelerate the growth of Irish start-up companies.
Since then, they have continued to grow the company, taking on additional staff and winning multiple awards for the first release of their game, P-3 Biotic, on the Xbox. They are also actively involved in programs designed to promote indigenous and foreign awareness of Ireland as a powerhouse games development country, helping to organise events such as Dublin Gamecraft, and most recently the Irish Indie Bundle, which is a collection of games created in Ireland designed to showcase our burgeoning industry.
