Description

Chronicle: Unit Eight is an arcade bullethell roguelike with a sliver of RPG thrown into the mix. Mixing the combat and game feel of vertical shooter games like "Raiden" and "Ikaruga" with the roguelite progression style of "Rogue Legacy". Chronicle gives that old school space shooting genre a new flavor of life. Dodge, fire bullets, and increase in strength by finding powerups or modifications on each fun. Collect Scraps that fall off of enemy ships to use to upgrade your ship for future runs. Discover many secrets and defeat the space pirate boss that you were originally hired to destroy.

Chronicle is a mercenary-for-hire organization. They have dispatched one mercenary, (codenamed Atlas,) and her ship, Unit Eight to sabotage and destroy a secret weapon that a space pirate group has created to destroy planets.

Discover new weapon combos, defensive maneuvers, abilities, bombs, and unlocks to help manifest the perfect run.

After every run, explore the vast perk tree and upgrade your ship through modifications, weapons, weapon unlocks, defensive maneuvers and more!

Can you defeat the space pirate organization and destroy the secret weapon before all the planets that we know are eliminated for good?
