In Voltage High Society, fight and explore a decayed city ruled by cybernetic monsters, find upgrades and weapons to unlock new areas. In this cyberpunk-body horror-Metroidvania, you are a nameless prisoner thrown into an island ruled by cybernetic monsters. Fight your way through the horrors, gain new weapons and abilities, and look for a way out. Inspired by japanese cyberpunk and Escape from New York, featuring gritty retro graphics with modern touches. In true Metroidvania-style, the tools you acquire will grant you access to new areas, ways to fight your enemies, and solve puzzles.
Fast-paced and unique combat. As you roam around the levels you'll constantly run into new monster designs to keep you on your toes. And, instead of having firearms, you´ll do more than just aim & shoot at things. Combining both modern & old school tech, black & white visuals and vibrant colors, you'll always have surprises ahead. One area might be dark and gritty with menacing monsters, the other a parade of colours with fast-paced arcade combat.
