In this three-quarters 2D game, cyberpunk meets Greek mythology, where familiar Greek mythology figures come to life in cyberspace such as Firewall Cerberus. To simulate the look and feel of cyberspace, the game’s color palette consists of mostly black with accent colors of electric blue, magenta, and red/orange.

As a rhythm based game, our music genre will focus on EDM/electro music with inspirations from the track Escapism (Nekodex Remix) from cYsmix’s album Escapism and Sonic Forces’ ost Battle with Infinite: First Bout. Since our main character is concepted to fight with an axe guitar, the featured instrument among our tracks will be a guitar.
