Hi my name is X-0ut and I have a long standing fascination/addiction to shmups.
I'm not so keen on the current trend of bullet hell, and it is my intention to show the existing shmup user base that the old school horizontal shooters still have life.
As such, I'm going to keep a work log here on tig for general feedback.
The project has been in development for around 6 months now, progress has been slow as I have bitten off quite a bit of work for a solo developer. The planned release date is sometime in 2011, its a little sketchy since I will not be happy to release a game I would not want to play myself.
I'm giving you the tig source readers a chance to steer the direction of the this games development. I shall be following feedback and critiscim closely, and hopefully applying what I learn to the game.

And now for some obligatory screen shots of the game and its status over development so far.





Well, thats it for the first development post, hope to hear some feedback.

*EDIT* Now has a name "Giga War", sorry for the confusion this may create from the previous title MkIII.

Whoa, this looks great!

But, yeah, when I first read the topic title I thought it was a shmup based on Mortal Kombat III and I was like what.

Looks good, and I'm with you, these hell of bullet games can be totally ridiculous.

Ohh, very cool.  I was never able to get into the b.h. shooters, so seeing this will be nice.   Hand Thumbs Up Left Ninja Hand Thumbs Up Right

So is the mech a boss or what?

I saw that screenshot and immediately thought of Einhander. This looks awesome and I can't wait to see more shots, and especially footage.

I have some old videos that can be viewed, but please note these are not up to date and do not correspond to the current status. They should give you an idea of where its going though:

Boss Fight
Test Flight

@The Monster King: You nailed it spot on, that is what I'm going for.
@Retroman: Yay another oldschooler to appreciate shmups. Loved the X-0ut intro Smiley

A new video of the game can be found here.
Theres no enemies in yet, its just a fly through of the first stage, route/path A.
Includes a sound track I have been working on.
Collision handling and response is also working between the world and entity spaces.
Such a mammoth project for one person, but it is progressing steadily.

This looks great! It looks like you get multiple independent weapons, how do you control them?

Depends on the ship you choose, for this ship its 1 button to configure, another to use (per weapon).
So thats a total of 4 buttons for this ship, works fine on controller with should buttons for configure. I dont think it will be too many.
