Still waiting for it! I love these retro shooters. Please create a lot of achievs to hunt them all then :)

Hey Ducklord, sorry for the delay in replying... been crazy busy!

First things first, the graphics are going to have a complete overhaul. I'm hiring a sprite artist who knows what they're doing to redo everything in a decent 16bit style. My pixel art is...erm not great, as you can see :)

As for the interface option, that's already in there. You can switch on scanlines, switch off the sides, completely re-size the screen on the fly, there's also a tate mode option.

Hope that answers you question.

Thanks for taking a look at my little game BTW :)

AH, I forgot: and something else that IS a bit important: can you have somewhere, someplace, even hidden in some ini, an option to totally disable the "interface" left-right? That's not a preference but an actual technical problem: on Plasma TVs there's the problem of "burn in", were if a static image is displayed for too long, it "stays" on screen even if you switch channels.

That may not seem like much of a problem for an indie PC game like this, but tell it to Gabe and The Masters Of Valve that gave us "big screen mode" and made easier having our PCs connected to our TVs. This game is simply a no-go for anyone with a Plasma screen (such as mee) and restricted to LCDs (and old CRTs) because of its static interface.

That's all and sorry for (maybe) seeming too negative. Just trying to help here :-)

Me loves retro. Your graphics _could_ be a bit better though, and I don't mean pixel-wise (I'[ve played my fair share of c64 shooters) but design-wise. Main thing that bothers me, the "bubbly" spaceship. Spaceships in shooters should be angular and "angry", not look like they came from a kids cartoon. Ah, I'm getting old I guess. The game's good as it is :-) ...but the main spaceship IS "bubbly" :-P

Hi Elfangorax,

I believe that the keys will be distributed via IndieGala. They should show up on the purchase page when the game has passed greenlight.

YES and good luck :)

Hi there. I was just wondering how Steam keys for this game from the IndieGala Greenlight bundle will be distributed if it gets Greenlit? Will the keys be sent to IG to distribute directly, or will it be done via Desura?
