Alternative Software Ltd. has announced the launch of twin-stick shooter Profane on Steam.

Developed by OverPowered Team, and recent winner of Best Action Game in Tencent’s Games Without Borders Awards, Profane challenges players to defeat enemies before the clock runs out. Time is money and health, so split-second decisions are as vital as dexterity in this awesome bullet hell romp.

Cited for its intriguing time system, where the challenge, skill consumption, and damage are all reflected in the time limit, as well as its enormous fun and all-round excellence, Profane gears up for release today on Steam as a new champion within the shmup genre.

In Profane players embody Talaal, the last of God’s seven masks. Talaal finds her bearer just in time to fight against siblings that hunt her to absorb the power within the mask. The bearer is now trapped in a war that does not belong to her; a cycle that seems impossible to break.

Profane features:

  • Award-winning time-based health and skill system
  • Customisable ability loadouts allowing players to optimize their game style
  • Competition-focused gameplay enabling you to challenge friends and beat hi-scores
  • Multiple game modes, including Rogue-lite
  • Twitch compatibility allowing viewers to affect the game, upgrading and refreshing the game experience
  • Full gamepad and controller support
