SHAPES OF GRAY IS OUT!!!
Official release date: September 23!
Description
Release date: September 23
Shapes of Gray is a fast-paced, stripped-down action-arcade game about rapidly descending through a series of seconds-long levels, each one containing a unique combat-puzzle challenge. Use your enemies' attacks against each other to get the high score and complete arcade challenges all while jamming out to a totally rad indie-punktronic micro-soundtrack.

Reviews for Shapes of Gray

"Shapes of Gray is difficult--but never cheap. 'WarioWare meets Hotline Miami'? Shapes is just as addicting as its spiritual parents." -Taylor Katcher[cbxcasts.com]

"A brilliantly designed arcade-style game." -FerrisWheelPro

"Its learning element is something you'll rarely find in modern blockbuster games today—unless you're a fan of the Monster Hunter or Souls franchises." -ThingsAndStuff

"I remember playing Asteroids as a kid. In fact, it was one of the first games I ever played: black-and-white, simplistic, incredibly difficult, but equally rewarding. Shapes of Gray hits all the same notes. It's an addictive, fast-paced indie title that I highly recommend to fans of the genre." -NintendoDrive[nintendodrive.com]

What is Shapes of Gray?

Back in early 2014, @Secret_Tunnel released a small arcade game called Shapes of Gray on itch.io. It received very little attention, but the attention it did receive was incredibly positive. Everyone who played it agreed that it was a very fun game, but it needed more meat to it!

Now he's remade the game with:
  • Hundreds of levels!
  • Epic boss battles!
  • An unlockable arcade mode with a sky-high skill ceiling!
  • A rad micro-soundtrack by Chicago's indie-punktronic music producer Andrew Nee!
  • High score challenges!
  • Full gamepad support!
  • A myriad of visual upgrades and gameplay tweaks!
  • An amazing sense of discovery!
  • Deep hidden meaning!?
  • And so much more!

But now the game needs your help to get through Greenlight so that everyone can play it! If you like what you see here, spread the word, because very Yes vote helps!

A unique looking retro. I'll try it when it gets the inevitable well-deserved greenlight!

Not a game i would ever get around to playing, but looks good regardless. I'll through you a vote since you are so close to getting off the queue and adding space for more greenlight games :steammocking:
