A downloadable game for Windows

Current Status: Postponed. I'm sorry to any who were looking forwards to this, as I was too.

I lost my engine license due to some chaos with the Game maker updating, and I wrote myself into a plot hole. I will come back to this some day in the unfortold future, but I don't expect it to be soon. I plan on world building elsewhere first.

In the meantime, I'm working on a new project that has a more coherent plot and project view, Project Rock. Check it out if you're interested!

Also, all paid content released so far will be free until I can return to this.


A scrolling shooter I'm developing for fun, practice, and profit. It's designed as the first in a series, telling a character-driven drama. The story follows players of a new hit scrolling shooter series. It'll have unlockable game modes and characters, such as boss rush and score attack. I'm aiming for six levels playable, with a boss unique to each level. I want to pay homage to many great SHMUPs throughout history, particularly ones I personally love. The story will be told through a visual novel interface.

First demo done, enjoy it, folks. I'll upload it shortly. Demo will include no more content, but I'll polish existing content in updates as I add more content to the full game.

The free beta contains one stage, one boss, one character. All four difficulty modes working. Please report bugs. I'll try to iron them out in updates to the demo, and work on content for the finished build. By the time the final build is finished, I hope to have all touches, ie music, better screens, added to the demo as well, minus the final exclusive elements, such as five more stages/bosses, and two-four more characters.

Paying now should guarantee full version access, to my knowledge. You itch.ioers are more knowledgeable than me, however. It would definitely help motivate.

News:

-Back again, working again. Sorry about the wait folks. I should be done with an update in a few days.I had an interesting christmas and a funeral. Working on it again, though.

-Hello, new version up, folks. It's been awhile. I had stuff going on, including hard drive failure. But I made alot of progress in the last few weeks, and finished up 1.4. The game is now available to purchase. I'll add footage of the second stage and Aki for the curious later tonight.


7/12/15: Patch version up, same method as 1.2.1. Sorry for that, folks. This is the version you want.
