Though humanity has always believed itself to be at the top
of the food chain, the more microscopic hierarchies of life are what
truly hold the powers of life and death. Disease is the greatest threat
to the future of our species, even more so than famine, and as rapid
population growth continues hand-in-hand with ever-increasing comforts
and quality of life, it is only a matter of time before some unstoppable
disease evolves with the potential to annihilate us.
That day has come. A new disease has been discovered in your
laboratory, spreading faster than modern methods of quarantine and
treatment can hope to contain. As traditional medicine has almost no
effect on this terrifying, unidentified xeno-virus, you've been tasked
with driving what may well be humanity's last, single hope in defeating
the outbreak of the disease before it reaches epidemic proportions: the
Nano Probe. Armed with cutting-edge weapons from laser canons to homing
missiles, the Nano Probe is a microscopic, experimental precision
surgical instrument that enters infected cells to hunt down and destroy
pathogens, all while being remotely controlled from outside the body.
You, and the Nano Probe, are all that stands between us and total
A retro arcade shooter at its core, the gameplay also
features classic match three puzzle elements, rejuvenating both of these
well-explored genres with ingenuity and addictive simplicity.
Transcripted transports players into the tiniest battlefield of all, the
perpetual war zone of the human body, to fight off a deadly virus that
if allowed to propagate and spread could destroy our entire species. But
all hope is not lost, as new tech research is constantly being
implemented, allowing players to upgrade the Nano Probe's weapons,
chassis, shields, and energy systems, ensuring that any evolutionary
escalation done by the virus does not remain one-sided. Players must
guide the Nano-Probe and its weapons with the objective of disrupting
the virus's slow-coiling pseudo-DNA strand, a colorful chain that can
only be broken by matching three or more nucleotide cubes of identical
color. Stopping an infection is no easy task, and the virus will create
many brutal, monstrous mutations to stop the Nano Probe dead in its
tracks... cue the game's unforgettable boss battles, which will require
both a sharp wit and razor-honed reflexes to overcome.
Two separate difficulty settings, one for puzzle elements
and another for shooting, make Transcripted a game of literally endless
possibility and replay value.
