Perichron, n. the point in the path of an object orbiting or passing Saturn closest to the center of the planet. Also, an independent game developer in the northeast USA, officially created in 2019 after many years of unofficial (more-or-less) existence.
We are a small (one-person!) studio specializing in retro-styled, space-themed games for the Windows PC. Our goal is to create the games you just can't seem to find these days, forged from equal parts forgotton history, arcane theory, and wild experimentation. Our influences include a whole bunch of Mac and PC shareware and freeware games from the '90s and early '00s, various custom map types for Starcraft: Brood War, and occasionally some normal games that other people might have heard of (but mostly the other kinds).
Perichron Interatctive's first large-scale project is in the works! A life-long dream, this game started out with some casual tinkering in 2017 and has been rising in priority since, now holding pride of place as our studio's primary focus.
And soon, it will be time for us to announce it to the world...
In UpMove, the cave flyer x typing game hybrid from Perichron Interactive, only the power of language can propel you as you strive to make that one last delivery that you need to move upwards and onwards. With difficulty inspired by '80s classics, even the most skilled pilots will find UpMove a worthy challenge!
Stellar Expansion is a lightwight freeware 4x game that places you in control of one of six species vying for galactic dominion. To win, you'll have to cultivate economic supremacy, defend your borders from pirates and rivals, and send forth your warships to wipe the blight of your enemies from the face of the universe...before they can do the same to you!
Along the way, we've produced some other games that were a bit smaller in scope, too. Although these games might not have been quite as much of an undertaking, we think that a few of them actually came out kind of interesting, so we decided to release them as freeware. Here they are!
