Not even sure how to describe a game like HyperParasite. It’s a mix of a bunch of different genres in the video game realms but I guess we’ll just call it 80s Insanity for lack of a better description. Super fun and fast-paced you just gotta read more about it below to get the full grasp on this bodacious offering from Troglobyte and Hand Picked Games out on Steam Early Access.


Today Troglobytes Games and Hound Picked Games are pleased to announce that rogue-lite twin stick snatch, zap and shoot ‘em up, HyperParasite, has launched on Steam Early Access, just ahead of its appearance at EGX Rezzed just 24 hours later, as part of the Unreal Showcase, at booth location QS1G 1-4.

HyperParasite offers rad visuals, fast paced action, tight controls and is set in the bodacious 80s. The game features 60 different classes, all of which you can control, exploiting their own attributes, weapons and moves, to present a game of outrageous action and rip roaring brawling at is very best. The game is laced with a comical slant which adds spice and fun with an incredible synth-wave soundtrack that’ll bring players, and their mullets, straight back to the 80s!

In HyperParasite, it’s the dude you control that is packed with the boom, no more scrabbling for weaponry and panicking at a boss encounter. With 60 different characters to take control of, players may snatch the best host body for the scenario and kick butt!

“We’re finally ready to bring everyone kicking and screaming back to the 1980s with HyperParasite on Steam Early Access. It’s now available for $8.99 for everyone to enjoy and give us feedback via the Steam forums and our Discord channel!”, said Saverio Caporusso, CEO of Trologbytes Games. “We’re thrilled to also announce we’ll be at EGX Rezzed where members of the press, influencers and fans of the 80s can get hands on with the HyperParasite”.

Exciting Early Access Features:

  • Unique twist on the genre: jump from one host body to another

  • Dozens of different playable character classes

  • 3 main levels and 4 sub levels

  • 10 different mini-bosses

  • 3 deranged main bosses
