In Extremis is a game that drinks in the rich tradition of the shoot'em up genre in order to bring an engaging and fun experience, while also attempting convey meaning and emotion through the player's interaction and virtual sensation.

Drawing from disparate sources of inspiration such as centuries-old mysticism to contemporary pop-culture,each level of the game is a different world , with an unique aural and visual aesthetics, as well as distinct playable dynamics, all unified under a rewarding arcade game sensibility.

Offering challenges and secrets, In Extremis tries to bridge the gap between art and fun, the undeground and the mainstream, the old and the new.
