About The Game

Tachyon Project is an action-packed dual-stick shooter driven by a story. Through the story mode you'll progressively unlock all the weapons, secondary weapons and perks available to configure your ship. You'll need them to face the increasingly hard enemies you'll find with over 30 different types (including four bosses).

In Tachyon Project you take control of Ada, a sentient software program that was designed to hack into the most secure servers on Earth. After some rather mysterious events, Ada is thrown out of the test server where it was living and out into the Internet, but when she tries to go back there she finds she is unable to. She then starts a journey to uncover the truth behind what happened to her creators, which she considers her parents. In the process, she'll find out that things were a bit more complex than she initially thought.
