About Waves²

Take up arms against the unending hordes of bugs and viruses determined to take over your system. Experience a challenge only limited by your ability to keep on playing through a combination of procedurally generated environments and thousands upon thousands of enemy units hell bent on destroying everything you stand for.

Grab a hold of those twin sticks to pull off big fat combos, skilful swift kills, and cleverly timed burst attacks to survive each onslaught. This is never-ending fun with the ultimate pay-off of a place on that all important high score table.

Waves² is still in development but you can gain Early Access by buying a copy now. During Early Access features and content will be added in monthly updates which you can keep up to date with at the Squid In A Box Blog or Youtube channel. During Alpha the Leaderboards may be periodically wiped and your save games may become invalidated. This is normal.

Once Waves² leaves Early Access (hopefully sometime in 2016) the price of the game will be reduced. Purchasing Early Access is a pledge of support for the developer, that you believe in them and their vision and wish to help; not a discounted pre-order.

This Steam Early Access game is currently not a finished game and may or may not change significantly over the course of development. To learn more about Steam Early Access, please visit http://store.steampowered.com/earlyaccessfaq/
