Archaist is a remake of David Lubar's 1984 game Pastfinder, a vertically scrolling shoot'em up with elements of strategy and an unusual pacing. On top of the original exploration-style game we also offer new game types, including a frantic shooter mode and both competitive and cooperative two player modes. All either with updated art or in "retro" mode which mimics the original.
Created for the 2006 Retro Remakes Accessibility Competition it had the great honor of receiving Barrie Ellis' spot prize for its many accessibility features. Quote head-judge Oddbob's review: Both a fantastic package and a fantastic game. If you've not played it yet - it begs the question "why the hell not?"
