  • Adrenaline-fueled soundtrack performed and recorded by in-house hard rock band, Action Replay

Additionally, here’s the Defenders of Ekron Steam page description:

Defenders of Ekron fuses Shmup action and the exploration of an Adventure game. Destroy enemies in 360° shooting range, analyze unique scenarios, upgrade your Anakim’s skills and defeat The Renegades to stop the bursting civil war threatening Ekron. The revolution starts within.
