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.
