Here’s a rundown on the game, plus a new gameplay trailer:


In 1992, Flashback revolutionized action gaming and gained legendary status, ranking among the 100 best video games in history.

Today, Paul Cuisset, the creator of the original game, invites you to play again as Conrad B. Hart, the young agent of the GBI (Galactic Bureau of Investigation).

In the 22nd century, the peace of the United Worlds extends throughout the Solar System — but this tranquility is threatened by the Morph invasion led by the fearsome General Lazarus.

In search of his lifelong friend, Ian, and with the help of his few allies — including A.I.S.H.A., his iconic AI-powered weapon — Conrad, once again, dives into a heart-pounding adventure full of twists, turns and revelations!

A gripping, fluid and intricate platform shooter, including exploration, puzzle solving and, of course, adventure!
