Greenlit!!
Description
Release date: Q3 2016


Left for dead by her closest friend and comrade, Hoshiko is now looking for revenge.
Follow her in this modern hardcore danmaku SHMUP about revenge, friendship and honour.
  • Action packed SHMUP action - Brought to you by long-time genre lovers.
  • Distance Overdrive - The damage caused by your laser increases as you get closer to the enemies, allowing faster kills.
  • Momentum Combo - Increase your combo gauge killing enemies as fast as you can

The core mechanic of the game is the Distance Overdrive. Basically, your laser damage power is inversely proportional to the distance from the target. Which means, getting closer will grant faster kills, but put you in danger. Faster kills will then impact your momentum combo, multiplying your score if you can keep your streak of fast, close kills without dying.

In order to use your laser, you'll consume laser energy, which is released by enemies. Faster kills also grants additional laser energy, resulting in even longer combos.
