All right, all of the core improvements have been implemented. These include professional character artwork, completely reworked story & writing, gameplay improvements, graphic improvements, a redesigned final boss, new music, more sound effects, and significant optimizations, among others. I just need to handle the work "outside" of the game (cover art, new website, setting up store page, etc.) and we should be good to go.

Apologies that the previously mentioned date passed without an update. I want to make this happen, and I want to do it right. That being said I have also obtained full time obligations elsewhere, so progress has been significantly slowed down. Nevertheless I will continue working on it when I can. Come mid-May I will have much more time to devote here, and will be able to provide a more accurate estimate of my progress. In the meantime I thank you all for your patience and support.

Is there a release in sight? I can't wait to see what the game looks like now. My wallet is ready.

So where's the game?

Any word or preview on the updates?

I'm guessing this will be a an updated release and past purchasers will have to rebuy it. I'm cool with this as long as it is updated.

This game is criminally overlooked in the shooting game community,which is a shame because there isn't anything else quite like it. It is seriously awesome.

Hey everyone! I've been upgrading and improving parts of this game in preparation for its Steam release. Character artwork has been vastly improved thanks to a great artist I've been working with. I'm also looking to integrate it with various Steam features. This started out as a personal project so it's great to see it come this far. We're currently gunning for this Fall.

Come on devs, please release this on Steam, this was meant to be the year of the shmup and with Raiden IV in the pipeline why not your game as well?
