Cyberpulse looks like an absolutely brilliant twist on the bright and fierce arcade action genres. Instead of a twin-stick shooter, it's a twin-stick…thrower? Yes.

Instead of firing your own lasers at enemies, it has a more inventive approach. You fly around and use physics-based mechanics to slam viruses, and your friends, into firewalls. It sounds a little odd and you need to see it in action to appreciate the idea so check out the trailer below:

Speaking to the developer on Twitter, they confirmed that Linux is "one of our target platforms" so we can expect to see Linux support when it releases sometime later this year. Sounds like it's going to be a lot of fun too with solo play and multiplayer across 70+ semi-procedural levels filled with a diverse cast of enemies, game modes, unlocks, and bosses and then there's also the 100+ versus maps for multiplayer. Quite a lot to keep you busy for sure.

Other features it will have:

  • Creative game physics that bring a new feel to the twin-stick genre
  • Local co-op tests the limits of your teamwork
  • Original music score filled with epic synthwave
  • 12+ electrifying power-ups to knock out viruses and your friends
  • Dozens of settings to customize your multiplayer experience from a hilarious party game to a competitive arena brawler

You can follow Cyberpulse on Steam.
