SAVE MANKIND FROM A DESTRUCTIVE SUPERCOMPUTER!
In the year 3300, a supercomputer was developed to help unify the countless human settlements that had spread across various systems. This machine was called GCS-WT and was unlike any other machine before. However, it quickly defected from its programming and began using its mechanical fleet to attack various homeworlds. Now it is up to the last two pilots aboard the Sol-Deace, developed by the recently murdered Edwin Deace, to fly deep into space and stop the machines once and for all. A port of the Mega-CD (SEGA-CD) launch game Sol-Feace, it brought a challenging shoot 'em up to the console known for having so many but still stood tall. Never released in Europe, now is your chance to own this officially licensed re-release of this Wolf Team-developed classic! For each copy sold, Retro-Bit will make a donation to our friends at the Video Game History Foundation in our mutual efforts for game preservation.

Sol-Deace has it all: from great graphics to fast-moving action to a wide array of weapon enhancements, this is every blaster fan’s dream come true.
Sol-Deace’s great visuals look really bizarre, with lots of worm-like cyborgs and mechanized defenses, painting a horrifying picture behind enemy lines.
If you’re looking for a tough shooter, this is the one. While not containing anything revolutionary, Sol-Deace is just a solid version of the tried and true 'blast anything that moves'. A good challenge!
