Based in Jyvaskyla/Rovaniemi, Finland
ZeroRanger is a vertically scrolling 2D shoot'em up with heavy emphasis on shooting, dodging and... mystery? Although the developer duo has a huge reverence for arcade sensibilities, ZeroRanger recognizes how many of these elements have also obscured over time, turning into something many genre aficionados may take for granted while alienating newcomers. ZeroRanger strives to clarify and re-contextualize these core design principles in order to bring forth the intangible sensation many classic arcade gauntlets continue to do to this very day.
ZeroRanger started development as a simple shoot'em up somewhere around 2008 originally under the name of FINALBOSS. The game's dev version saw small-scale freeware releases during the subsequent years. What began as a fun pastime steadily transformed into a much more ambitious undertaking. The tale of this indie passion project will finally reach its end when ZeroRanger releases in 2018 for PC.
