is a 2D sci-fi rogue-like shooter being created and developed by Alientrap.

Cryptark is a 2D roguelike shooter that challenges players with boarding and neutralizing procedurally generated alien starships to earn income for their Privateering enterprise. Purchase improved equipment and weapons to tackle more dangerous targets, but be cautious as failure will result in a loss of investment and profit. The decaying alien arks will defend themselves from intruders with a wide arsenal of cyborg monstrosities, robotics, and security systems, all obstacles that must be surpassed to achieve victory, the destruction of the ship’s central System Core.

In Cryptark you take on the role of a heavily armed privateer seeking to earn government contracts by boarding deadly alien space-hulks. It’s up to you to strategize a plan of attack, pick an equipment loadout, and destroy the central core to be victorious.

The life of a Privateer in the growing field of Xenoarchaeology is difficult, fraught with bureaucratic red tape, pressure from research boards, and the rising costs of equipment. Not to mention the hazardous workplaces of hulking ancient derelicts infested with the murderous cybernetic remains of their long dead alien crew.Image title
