Hessian (C64) 


Take the role of Kim, a low-level security guard at a Throne Group science complex, during the worst night shift of her life!
This involves the Group's inventions spiraling out of control thanks to the megalomaniacal visions of the head scientist Norman Throne, ad-hoc life-saving nanomechanical surgical procedures that grant Kim superior strength and recovery capability, but also the constant dependence on battery power, relentless combat against enemies both robotic and human, and an impending apocalypse!

how about a Steam release?...with achievements and etc...

This is certainly on the retro side of action.

Wow, can you release a demo. I'd love try something like this in an emulator.

No need for a demo, the whole game is available to download for free on this page and it can be run in a C64 emulator

This is just Fantastic!!!!! It´s amazing to see new games for this great home computer! Congratulations!
