Aztaka, a new side-scrolling RPG, released on Steam


QUEBEC, CANADA, Nov. 5 -- Independent game developer Citérémis today released Aztaka on the Steam Digital Distribution Platform. Aztaka is a side-scrolling role-playing adventure that blends classic gameplay with modern technology and high-end graphics.

Inspired by Aztec legend, Aztaka drops players into the middle of a war between mankind and the gods. Only Huitzilo, who's skilled in the arts of combat and magic, can save his people from the wrath of the Aztec deities.

Aztaka features richly detailed backdrops and fluid character animation, immersing players in a heroic quest to collect seven Phonograms. Featuring 21 levels packed with mythological creatures, quests and puzzles, Aztaka provides a new universe for action-RPG fans to explore.

Already receiving high praise for its exceptional graphics and innovative controls, Aztaka will reach an even wider player base through Steam.

"We're thrilled to have Steam host Aztaka. This opens up a new audience to us, and we're confident people will appreciate Aztaka's combination of an Aztec-inspired world and old school action-RPG gameplay," says Citérémis president Jonathan Mercier.
