Defenders of Ekron is an Adventure / Shmup game that mixes the exploration and narrative experience of an Adventure game with the best action of a classic Shmup, offering a different and fresh gameplay.

You take the role of Eneas, a young and bold cadet that has trained his entire life to pilot his Anakim, an advanced mech capable of absorbing and transforming the energy around it into a special ability, but something goes wrong and Eneas' Anakim doesn't develop it. Eneas will find himself powerless to defend his nation from a bursting civil war and, at the same time, will reveal dark secrets surrounding the Technocratic Republic of Ekron.
