Twin-stick Gravity Shooter ‘Captain Kaon’ Now Available on PC, Receives New Launch Trailer

Twin-stick gravity shooter Captain Kaon is now live on PC via Steam. Alongside the game's release we also get a new trailer for the game.

Engage Pixel have released their twin-stick gravity shooter Captain Kaon on PC via Steam today. The game looks to draw heavy inspiration from the classic gravity shooters of the past. Alongside the release of the game we also received a new launch trailer, which can be seen below.

For those hearing about the game for the first time today, here is a description of the story and features:

The overcrowded Earth has found a new home among the stars, a clutch of habitable worlds in the Regulus sector. But this new paradise did not last long as a strange alien force began a relentless assault on their colonies. This threat to human expansion could not go unchallenged. In response the Earth has sent the finest ships in the Interstellar Navy to defend the colonists and protect its interests. Left behind are the old and the out-of-date, led by the flagship Argus; a small fleet of relics to defend our only home.

Hot-headed and insubordinate, Captain Talia ‘Kaon’ Altaras is facing court martial when war breaks out. Hoping this new conflict gives her the chance for salvation, she instead finds herself left behind. With the Argus operating on a skeleton crew, she has been assigned as its sole gunship pilot. In the midst of this uncertainty the miners of Ceres revolt against Earth’s rule, refusing to supply the fleet with the deuterium fuel it sorely needs. Without it the fleet in Regulus will be unable to fight and Earth will become vulnerable. Only Captain Kaon can fly her gunship through the twisting tunnels beneath Ceres surface and fight the revolt.
