GUYS GUYS GUYS!

Help me decide a name for this game! I can't decide which one to choose, so if you can spend 15 seconds minutes voting in this Strawpoll that would be great Smiley

Also feel free to suggest a new one!

This is so cool man! You're doing a good job on the aesthetics too - very easy to follow the action.

You really love Bulwark, huh?!

For some reason I think "Beta Bulwark" is a lot of fun to say, so what about Hyper Beta Bulwark? Fun to say and fits with your aesthetic

Thank you for the kind words! Also loving your game, rock on!

Haha, yeah! Bulwarks are the bosses in the game, and I love the word for some reason! Hyper Beta Bulwark definitely rolls off the tongue, but I'm looking for something more cheesy/over the top, like the game itself Smiley Thank you so much for responding though, appreciate it greatly.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions!

The final name has been decided: Galactic Bulwark Strike <3

These past weeks I've been working on refactors, so nothing exciting to show.

Except this awesome replay, of course:


Wow!
What a save!
What a save!

Lots of changes this time, the Upgrades and Boosts systems are in. However I will show that later in a youtube video devlog since it's harder to show through gifs Smiley

Buuuut...


I added damage numbers


and a Boost that adds a second ball!

What lies at the other side of the portal?

Working on the end of level transition Smiley In order to proceed to the next level you have to throw the ball into the portal!

it looks really interesting

Glad you think so!

Here's my first video log of the game, take a look if you want to see some gameplay!





First time doing a video like this. My english and presentation is horrible but I will try to improve over the next videos Smiley

Also, as I mention in the video, I'm approaching the first Steam Closed Beta! So if you are interested on playing the beta and providing feedback let me know!

After a break of two weeks I'm back!

I've been through some personal stuff that has made me change the way I see my game and its development. This game started with a very reduced scope and a clear goal: release my first own game on Steam. I already have a full-time job on the industry so the time and energy I have to spend on Galactic Bulwark Strike is limited.

However, I began to be so excited about how the game was turning out that I started to plan greater and greater things for it, like roguelike elements, a map to explore, etc.

Which is utter nonsense considering the game is as simple and ridiculous as it gets. It's a fucking shooter arkanoid for god's sake  Grin

So now we are back to the roots. The game will have a linear progression through levels where you defeat enemies and face a boss, and then onto the next one until you die or finish the game.

GBS will be what it was meant to:

an over the top game where you shoot stuff and hit a ball!



The only kind of progression that I have planned besides that is being able to spend the score points on upgrading weapons, pretty simple stuff.

Thanks for reading!

Just played a full run of all the content currently in the game (3 levels + boss). It takes about 9 minutes to complete, so I'd say it's not that bad. I even recorded it for posterity Smiley





Right now I'm still adding more powerups. The current list is:



I don't want all the weapons to feel just the same so I try to give each powerup a distinct feel and purpose.

What do you think about this? Do you have any cool ideas?

New weapon idea! The wall laser. Hitting the ball against the walls spawns a sweeping laser.


I think I will keep this one, seems fun to play with Smiley

Hey guys! Just released a demo of my game!


Also I just made a very lonely Discord channel for the game, come in if you want to chat about it!


I'm trying to find people interested in the game/genre, so if you like this kind of game, come and join the discord because I will be giving a few free beta keys so you can get updates of the game Smiley
