STEREDENN: BINARY STARS is an award-winning mashup of a classic shmup and a rogue-like, carved in big beautiful pixels, with insane boss battles. Fly solo or co-op with a friend, fighting off the worst scourges of space in a never-ending struggle for survival.


Binary Stars

STEREDENN: BINARY STARS is the **hugely expanded** version of the acclaimed Steredenn. Enjoy infinite replayability and unforgiving gameplay through intense boss fights, (almost) randomly generated environments, twisted space events and a massive arsenal of weapons. Enhance your ship during your flight with upgrades aplenty, and forge your own path across the universe!

What's new?

A ton! More weapons, more upgrades, more polish, more waves, a new balance, a new scoring. But that's not the end: you can play with 5 different ships, each with its own playstyle and special ability. You can also re-discover the game through the brand new co-op mode and the boss rush. This expansion is the ultimate Steredenn experience.


  • QUICK, INTENSE SESSIONS: with rock-hard boss battles that’ll keep you coming back for “just one more run”.
  • INFINITE REPLAYABILITY: endless arcade action, where levels are (practically) randomly-generated.
  • 5 PLAYABLE SHIPS: each has its own special ability and playstyle.
  • LOCAL COOP MODE: 2 ships, 4 weapons, 1 lifebar - test your friendships!
  • MIGHTY ARSENAL: 42 weapons and 30 upgrades with tons of customisation options. Driller, ultralaser, giant saw, robots, hypergun? We got you covered. Next-gen abilities, mysterious alien powers, improved weapons? Yep, there's an upgrade for that.
  • SCORING: beat your friends and be the best!
  • BOSS RUSH: fight a weekly selection of epic bosses and work your way up the leaderboard.
  • DAILY RUN: try to get to number one in a special daily leaderboard where all players share the same run, guns and bosses. Be ready - you only get one chance per day!
