Beacon is a sci-fi action roguelite that plays like a top-down shooter. You're tasked with fighting your way through a randomly generated alien world, trapped in a search for your ship’s emergency distress beacon — your only hope to signal for rescue after crash landing.
In your search you’ll not only find weapons and items to help you; you’ll also be collecting DNA from the enemies you defeat. When you inevitably die, you’re given the opportunity to integrate the DNA you've collected into your genome, allowing you to alter your statistics and potentially gain gameplay-altering physical mutations for your next life.
Beacon aims to combine fast, frenetic action with ambient exploration, giving the player a rich world to scavenge on their mission to find rescue.
