RW:NW™ is a personal revisitation of the 80s' arcades where I spent most of my pocket money as a kid. It's also my very first solo project after six years of working on much larger team projects.
After all that work on slow pachyderms, I wanted to take a stab at something smaller, faster to make, and granting a more immediate fun.
So, I dusted a gameplay idea I hid in a drawer a couple of years back, I set it up as a 30 minutes-a-day project and started working on it during lunch breaks. When the prototype was welcomed quite enthusiastically by the first testers, I decided to make it real.
  • Use the mouse to maneuver a monomolecular filament (the RazerWire) to protect your generators and kill the nanobugs assaulting them.
  • Survive endless waves of attackers with increasing difficulty.
  • Avoid hits on the Generators.
  • Use the RazerWire to destroy your enemies.
  • Use left and right mouse click to activate some powerups (like the Antimatter Blaster and the PowerWave).
Enjoy a rogue-like progress: Survive as many waves as possible, die, use earned points to unlock upgrades and powerups, and then jump back in the fight (there are checkpoints every 20 waves, no worries!)
  • Multiple enemy types with several variants each :
  • 7 Movement types (including Teleport, Accelerating Zig zags and Escaping from the Wire)
  • 4 Shooting modes including homing missiles, scrambling bullets and all-around shooting
  • 2 Armor types
  • Multiple unlockable upgrades for the Wire including Shields, Armor, Health and Recovery Times
  • Up to 7 powerups including Anabolishields, Nanoblades and Chrono Molasses
  • Procedural difficulty increase in the endless waves progression

In a future far, far away, humanity has colonized most of the galaxy. However, our world is being exterminated by an unseen enemy.When scientists figured out that the killers are nano-sized, virus-like aliens, Dr.Illerotsap modifies a medical tool, a monomolecular filament used for nano-scale medical operations, and turns it into a formidable weapon against the enemy.
The RazeWire was born.
