A downloadable game
About the Game » Substream is an abstract aerial shooter for Windows PC. It's a very musical game. The entire environment morphs and animates with the rhythms, moods and melodies of the soundtrack.
In each level you fly over a landscape shooting down robotic alien drones, collecting weapons and scoring points, surviving until the end of the tune. But it's a little more complex than it first appears: space is looped. This means your attackers appear in multiple positions ahead of you, and your lone aircraft is effectively a squadron stretching off to infinity.
Substream has an arcade feel. If you're a competent gamer you'll probably find it more relaxing than your average shooter. The looping space is unusual but quite easy to get used to.
