Releasing Imminently!
Release date: Early 2015
Here ->


Exostorm is a classic top down shooter with gorgeous art, pumping music, an eye for modern design.

Take control of the iconic Dual Vulcan experimental fighter as you tackle the canonical shmup enemy - invading alien enemies. They threaten all we know, and as every fan of classic shooters knows, the only way to defeat them is to dodge and weave your way through walls of bullets while dispensing your own array of experimental ordnance.

  • Fight your way through tightly designed levels and defeat ominous bosses.
  • Tap your feet to our custom level-matched soundtrack.
  • Unlock additional primary and secondary weapons.
  • Unlock the dreaded Hardcore Mode, and play the game that wants to destroy you.
  • Master the scoring system and compete with your friends to top the leaderboards!

The State of Things
Exostorm is basically done. It's been playtested on many friends' machines, and lacks only a platform to sell it on. If and when we get Greenlit, the Windows build is waiting only on any achievement/steam integration we need to do. Mac and Linux will come online a little later - the Linux build has been "up and running", but isn't quite ship-ready. Once the Linux SKU is complete it should port fairly seamlessly to OSX.

Sorry for the delays everyone. Work was busy this year. I've got the Windows release ready to go, and I'm chasing down some fiddly bugs with alt-tabbing in OSX/Linux. I'm borderline on just releasing windows on Desura/Humble and ignoring OSX/linux due to the potential support nightmare as I don't really have any release experience on those platforms. We've still a ways to go on Greenlight, however, so expect any actual release to be on other storefronts.

Early 2014 has passed us release as yet?! Can we expect more updates as to the progress of this project; a la more screenshots. A game like this needs to challenge Ikaruga or better it, this is not the year 2000 but 2014, it is time for a decent shooter to come out of the woodwork and fulfill or even exceed our expectations of the modern shooter...can you guys be the ones to do this?
