r0x (Extended Play) Update!
r0x (Extended Play) Post-Mortem
Description
Release date: 07/08/2014
More avoid-em-up than traditional shmup, r0x (Extended Play) is a simple arcade game where ammo is scarce and you are rewarded generously for taking risks and flying dangerously. Graze rocks, bullets and enemies to recharge your cannon and thrust at breakneck speed through the deadly meteor storm to rack up an epic score!

r0x EP is an enhanced remake of RGCD and NoExtra’s 2009 Atari STE game r0x, and was initially released at the Sundown Demoparty 2014. Developed over the course of two months by a core two-man team, r0x EP improves on the original game by introducing a wide range of Proximan renegade scum to battle, nine objective based 2-4 player vs modes and brutal astronaut zero-g wrestling! ;)

r0x EP features:

  • Thrusting!
  • Grinding!
  • Two single player modes with separate high score tables, and nine local multiplayer modes!
  • Achievements system and player statistics!
  • Algorithmic level generation!
  • Seven track user-selectable OST composed entirely on an Amiga 1200 by demoscene musician h0ffman!
  • Awesome artwork by Tikipod and Vierbit!
  • Xbox 360 controller support!

Post Greenlight Edit (03/05/16):

We're currently working on a HUGE update to r0x EP. We’ve exhibited the game at events quite a few times now and have identified areas that really need fixing (optional HUD around the player ship, improved options, better multiplayer, a playable tutorial), and other areas that could be enhanced (more enemy types, proper transitions between waves, more varied stages and graphics, more music, more everything really).

As we have to pay for a new soundtrack (without the uncleared samples present in the original), we have decided to make it worthy of a budget price tag (~$5). The original version will remain free (and possibly some minor enhancements will even transition across), but our main focus will be on the new, updated and enhanced version of the game.

(All bundle keys will be honoured and users will receive the improved, enhanced version, as will anyone who donated anything to the original game on itch.io).

You can download the original Windows and Ouya/Android versions of r0x EP for free from the itch.io page at http://rgcddev.itch.io/r0x-extended-play

Good to see that this game is still going strong. Will you be distributing steam keys to the bundle sites that hosted r0x when it's available on steam?

Hello peeps! As some of you are already aware, we've been working on another game, Pan-Dimensional Conga Combat, for the past year. Thankfully, that is now finally complete and ready for release (we'll also be making a Greenlight entry next week).

After that, it's back to work on r0x, and we have a rather epic sized update planned for the steam release. The work should be done by the end of the summer, but the plan is to add a load more content including new stages/wave types, online global and steam-friends score boards, more r0x and enemy types, better options, improved UI, a playable tutorial and better/fixed multiplayer modes.

Hang tight, it'll be worth the wait.

Discovered this game because, somehow, I ended up at the "Pan-Dimensional Conga-Combat" video.

Saw "r0x" in the related videos, ended up loving both games! :P

Nice work! Beautiful game!
