Anticipating a long hot summer? Don't do so well in the sweltering heat? Why not let XS Games' The Red Star cool you off? It doesn't come much cooler than duking it out in an alternate future Russia (unless you want to get literal about the 'heat' of battle, in which case it gets much, much cooler. But that would be pedantic, wouldn't it?)

The Red Star thrusts you into an parallel reality where the Soviet Union never fell. Instead, it now rules the sky with gigantic warships which use a combination of science and magic. Obviously, history show us that communism is an evil, evil thing. But the really bad news is that it also turns out that in this case the United Republics of the Red Star are actually being run by a particularly nasty chap called the Dark Lord Imbohl along with his chief assassin, Troika, the Harvester of Souls.

With that in mind, it’s up to you, as Sorceress Major Maya Antares, to take up arms and unite scattered rebel forces and save the day. The Red Star thrusts players into ferocious melee combat with a twist of fast and furious old-school shoot-em-up action.
