Project Root

There’s no such thing as a nonviolent revolution” – Malcolm X.

Argentinian indie game developer OPQAM together with Reverb Triple XP announced last week that Project Root, a free-roaming, overhead shooter will launch on the PlayStation4, Xbox One and the PlayStation Vita, in early 2015. To launch a revolution against evil, players will pilot an advance hover fighter against a bulletstorm of enemies from a global corporation with hidden plans for world domination.

“As our first video game title, we wanted to bring back some of that classic arcade action to new gamers,” said Pablo Testa, Technical Director at OPQAM. “Project Root delivers fast, arcade shooting action in an open-world environment and we think it will have great appeal to players who love these classic ‘shmups’ type games.”

In Project Root, gamers will take on the role of rebel ace Lance Rockport who pilots the advanced F-72 Zonda hover fighter against the ruthless Prometheus Corporation. Taking place across eight different levels, players will take on enemies both in the air and on the ground; they’ll receive upgrades in firepower, armor and maneuverability while utilizing special weapon drops during battle, and engage in frenetic boss battles and strike at the root of the evil Prometheus Corporation.

Project Root will be coming to the PS4, Xbox One, and PSVita in early 2015.
