It's to be the first of an episodic series, but we'll let the press release explain the game in full:
A.R.E.S.: Extinction Agenda is the first chapter of a full-featured episodic action-packed side-scroller.
A.R.E.S.: Extinction Agenda, the first prize winner of the latest XNA Dream Build Play Contest, is available now on Steam with two new armor skins; Carbon Stealth Suit and Indigo Pulse Suit as exclusive Steam content.
A.R.E.S. is an action-packed side-scrolling game that gives you a distinct retro feel that you cannot find in today's AAA blockbusters. Retro feel, but nevertheless it has beautiful 3D visuals.
In the traditions of retro classics, you play as Ares, an advanced combat robot sent on a mission to rescue taskforce members who were trapped while conducting an investigation to find out the extent of damage sustained by the space station.
Annihilate countless robots, recycle their parts to make incredible items and take on gigantic bosses in this 3D environment side-scroller.
