NAVE

Description
Grow your spaceship and resist! NAVE ("ship" in Spanish) is a survival space-shooter, or, as we call it, a "resistance" game. Resist as much time as you can by dodging enemies, shooting at them, grabbing power-ups and controlling difficulty by using the "Turbo" feature!

More about the game
NAVE was created to learn about the classic space-shooter genre and experiment. We wanted it to be simple, both graphically and in gameplay. For the graphics we chose to work in low-res black and white pixelart, so visuals could always be final (not many options for placing pixels because they're are big, and "transparent" and white, not to waste time thinking about colors). About the gameplay, we chose to base it on a classic genre not to start a game design from scratch, but with an eye on experimentation: We wanted to see what would happen when you grow and grow your ship (till filling the whole screen with it) and also wanted to give the player the chance to control the difficulty/pace of the game, by adding the "Turbo" feature to advance faster to higher levels. The game doesnít have a design document, so itís growing organically as we work on it and test it.
There's an alpha version of the game, but there's still a lot of work to do in level design.


Development Team
We are Videogamo, a team of two right now.
In this game Hernan is in charge of game design and graphics, and me, in charge of programming and special effects Smiley
We are planning on hiring someone to do the music of the game (we are using Stress by Justice for now. We think it goes so well with the game that we are going to try to do something with similar style).

Our website: http://videogamo.com/
Our facebook page which we update more often: http://www.facebook.com/VIDEOGAMO
and lastly our twitter account: @videogamo



Arcade Cabinet
We are building and cabinet of the game for and expo here in Argentina.
Here are some first sketches:


And now the finished product!

this looks really cool.  in the second screenshot, are the smallest dots bullets or stars?  i may be speaking too soon, but with the black and white it seems like you'd want to minimize the clutter (as best you can w/ this type of game) to make it easier on the eyes. 

oh and you've got a lot of cool games of that website, i'll make sure to try those out.

Really like the look of this. Been messing around with the idea of making a black and white game, like the limitations Smiley

Thank all for the replies!

@sabajt
The small dots are stars. But we think they don't bother once you see all in movement.
You'll be able to see it when we upload the gameplay video...

@astrofra
We have to balance the difficulty curve yet, but I think it's not going to be an easy game Smiley

These are the enemies.
Some of them are already implemented in the game, but we still must include the more complex ones:

This looks pretty interesting. You seem to have a good grasp of how to make things look good with just two colors. I'm looking forward to seeing it in motion...

I've made an animated 3d anaglyph test of the sky. Just having fun.
I'd like to play a 3D version of the game, but I don't know if my eyes are going to stand it  Smiley

You can try it here if you have the glasses HERE

Just tried it with my red and blue glasses and pretty cool. Always wanted to try and make a game or video with that technique. You should have it as an option you can turn on within the game.
