Developer Nikolai Usachev and publisher Sometimes You have announced that their upcoming top-down roguelike action-shooter ‘Fusion Paradox’ will be coming to Xbox consoles on the 1st of November.

This accomplished, all out action romp, mixes exploring, with fast paced shooting that delivers a high octane experience for gamers who like a challenge plus plenty of surprises. Fight the forces and anomalies that have captured the Agency. Defy the ancient goddess of war and free it!

The developerm Nikolai, describes Fusion Paradox as a combination of the “scrolling shooter” and “action roguelike” genres. The main distinctive feature is the switching of the hero’s binary state, where each state represents a unique power with its own characteristics and attributes. These powers can include unique weapons, skills, or magical bonuses. Additionally, some of the enemies are vulnerable only in specific states of the hero. It’s crucial for the player to know when to choose the right colour.

In the agency building, there are five floors located in different temporal and spatial dimensions. Mystical events occur here that transcend ordinary time and space. If a place is contaminated, supernatural phenomena can repeat in it even centuries later, as if disrupting the fabric of time. Scientists and magicians investigate the nature of the emergence of anomalous zones in various historical periods by travelling back in time. To reduce the growth and impact of unidentified threats, the administration decided to relocate these spaces from their temporal periods inside the agency building, allocating entire floors for them.

The main goal of the player is to reach the 5th floor and defeat the final boss!
