Story

It is the 23rd century. EDEN, the massive virtual reality network witch helped humankind to flourish, suddenly severed all contact with the outside world…Leaving the minds of its 100 million users trapped inside.

A covert special task force known as “Saviours” has been called in to address the situation. Using special attack programs modeled after fighter jets, they plan to delve into the deepest cores of EDEN and find who or what has set it haywire.

There’s no telling what they may discover within the troubled space of this human created universe..

Characters

Graze Counter GM Gameplay

A top-down scrolling 2D shooting game where you charge your gauge by getting dangerously close to enemy fire, then unleash it as a powerful enemy obliterating “Graze Counter”!
Each ship has a “Counter Gauge” that charges by being in close proximity to enemy bullets. You then use this charge to unleash powerful attacks.Destroying enemies with these special attacks gives you stars which are collected and used to build the “Break Gauge”.Once the break gauge reaches MAX, you can activate “Break Mode” for a temporary yet intense firepower boost!
