A downloadable game for Windows

Hecaton is futuristic action rogue-like set on Titan, a terraformed moon of Saturn.  Play as a Bounty Hunter and fight your way through an army of space pirates, wildlife, and the clandestine Morai.  Survive as long as possible to unlock new Keystones that upgrade your character and attacks.


Key Features


Keep Moving

Enemies will increase in Power and Complexity as time goes on.  Random Enemy Modifiers ensure that you can be caught unaware at any moment.  Speed and efficiency are key to success.  

Keep Fighting

 Five out of the game's seven buttons are used for attacks.  Learn when and where to use each Bounty Hunter's skillset while moving closer to the Space Pirate's hidden base.  Mastering combat is the core of Hecaton.  


Controls

  • Keyboard and Controller are both supported and can be reconfigured.
