Hello everybody! We’re PunchButton Studios, a small Dutch game studio, and we’re currently working on Antibody, a modern, free-scrolling tactical shmup. Please check out the Steam page and wishlist!

Antibody was inspired by Defender and Gradius, with a focus on the strategic side of the genre. You play as a lone pilot fighting to save a distant planet from a mysterious virus.
We’ve been working on it since Fall 2019, and will release the game in 2021.

In the game, players have to remove patches of corruption from the level, by dropping defendees on the right spot. Meanwhile, enemies will try to kill the player, kidnap the defendees and increase the corruption. This way, Antibody continuously forces the player to stay alert, adapt and manage their resources.

Through different stages, you travel to the center of Sanguon, a giant planet that’s actually more like an enormous organism. Each stage is based on a different organ, with various stage hazards. While you get closer and closer to the heart of Sanguon, you encounter numerous enemies and bosses, all based on different viruses, with unique characteristics and weaknesses.

A demo of Antibody will be playable during the Steam Game Festival: February (3-9 February) https://partner.steamgames.com/doc/marketing/steamgamefestival/2021february

The demo's been available for 2 days now and we've already received some great responses and feedback! We did hear about people suffering from performance issues, so we're making some updates to make sure almost every PC should be able to run it properly.

We're currently working on adding a new enemy to the game, called the Disrupter. It's a stunning enemy. Literally: if you get too close, it will zap you, stunning your ship and making you drop your Chonklers. However, just shooting it from a distance is useless; instead, you have to lure them. It will lower its defenses and go for the attack. That’s when you have to strike.

Check out the Disrupter prototype here: https://gfycat.com/positivefocusedduckbillcat
