History

Chimera One Games is an independent game studio founded in 2016 in Canada, with a core focus on bringing back intense action classic arcade gaming to desktop and console.

How it started: 

One day inspiration stuck when our team realized what was missing from so many modern games these days. It was the straight-forward arcade action that had taken a back seat to complex mechanics and story elements. With that in mind, we set out to create something that has the soul of classic arcade action, but combined with modern improvements on the genre.

Evolution of BulletRage:

The game BulletRage started as a mobile top-down twinstick shooter. With the foundation built, we proceed to ramp up on the intensity of the graphics and gameplay.  It was at that point when we realized the huge problem of how slippery a mobile phone's display was.  The slippery screen did not allow for the precise control that was required of a classic arcade style game as we imagined. And our graphics would not have been playable on the lower end of phones as well. 

The shift to Desktop and Console:

After the move to a PC focused development, BulletRage progressed quickly. Graphics were upgraded, gameplay intensity was greatly amplified, and we added in lots and lots of explosions.  With all of the new upgrades in the game, we were able to create a playable demo that immediately attracted the attention of fans of the action genre. And all of them had the same request: Make it multiplayer now!

BulletRage Multiplayer:

Multiplayer function was the one important element that was missing to complete the classic arcade experience. The exciting joy of colorful giant bullets streaking across the screen, frantic joystick mashing, and yelling at your friends whether they did good or bad. That was the delicious vision we believe that we have achieved.

Features:

Customize your character with hundreds of deadly weapon loadout combinations, then tear through over 40 levels of relentless traps and enemies to win humanity’s survival.
