Holy crap, Antecrypt is awesome. Features some really unique mechanics involving a bouncing aim point you can't control, it's like nothing else. If you're a fan of twinsticks or bullet hells, you need to check it out - this is really something special.
A downloadable game for Windows
Shoot corrupting monsters and save mankind's last hard-drive with your rechargeable laser-beam! ... But your aiming has a mind of its own, so you'll have to make do!
This is a tight arcade single-stick arena shooter! Were you looking for a tough-but-fair retro-styled challenge?
This game features:
- 🔫 tight top-down shooting action
- 💾 40 levels
- 💀 2 additional difficulty modes
- 🔒 30+ unlockable unique upgrades to help you through the levels
- 👩💻 6 skills to improve strategically
- ⚡ a lot of explosions and sparks
- ⏱ a timer for time-attack / speedrunning purposes
This game can be played either with a keyboard or a game controller! There can be some confusion as to the actual controls as we don't have an in-game tutorial, so here they are:
- the arrows, or WASD, or the left stick of a controller, or the D-pad to move around
- [X] or (A) to use the laser-beam
- [C] or (B) to use the bomb
Additionally, here's a little tip: after selecting a level, and after you've unlocked some upgrades, you can select unlocked upgrades by pressing down instead of confirming the [restore file] prompt. We're sorry we didn't manage to communicate this better in-game, we'll do better next time!
Here is a short introduction video made by Bigaston. The video is in french but has english subtitles, and it explains the game really well.

I played Antecrypt... and it is awesome!
this is way more fun than it has any right being
your game looks super cool! also the theme design of this page!
Wow, good job Benjamin and Travesol! Didn’t expect to see your games get to the front page. That is really cool!
nice can you make a macOS version????
We will make a macOS version eventually, but we're using an in-house engine and it simply doesn't support macOS yet. It will come though, maybe a few months from now. Thank you for your patience!
Great concept, great style, great execution!
Cool game, the premise is intriguing and the visuals are amazing. Can’t wait to see what you will release next!!
