Description

Developed in a top secret lab over the course of the past eighteen months, RGCD.DEV’s Pan-Dimensional Conga Combat is a rhythm-synchronised, old-school, score-chasing arcade game that plays like some alien coin-op from another dimension. Grab your Conganoid and join the Elder Gods in the competitive ceremonial slaughter of annoyingly happy (yet extremely deadly) geometric, pan-dimensional critters!

Conga Combat is not a typical arena-shooter. Defend yourself against the pan-dimensional 'critters' using your bullet tail, close enemy portals by looping around them and charge up your hyper-destructive mega-lazor by laying a path of bullets in front of the mindless, drifting 'purploids'. Oh, and stay the hell out of the way of the 'EVIL X' - those dudes are BAD news!

Combining trippy visual effects and coffee-break sized bytes of hardcore action, Conga Combat can be played solo in either arcade or survival mode. Arcade plays like a typical coin-op, with the player starting from the beginning each game, jumping from dimension to dimension by achieving the ever-growing kill-quota on each stage. Alternatively, the 'pure' survival mode sees the player facing an endless horde of increasingly aggressive geometric critters in a single arena for as long as they can.

Got some people over for a gaming session? We've got you covered with our old-school, timed local-multiplayer mode where you can battle your against your friends and family for high-score supremacy!

Conga Combat features:
  • Rhythm-synchronized arcade action!
  • Eye-popping visual effects!
  • Fast-paced play sessions that are perfect for that coffee-break adrenaline blast!
  • Two different single-player modes from which you can unlock the game's four dimensions!
  • Local multiplayer high-score battle mode for up to four players!
  • Four-track Renoise OST of heavy-weight acid/chip/funk breaks composed by Ilija 'iLKke' Melentijevic!
  • A playable tutorial to explain those non-obvious alien game mechanics in full!
  • Xbox 360 controller support (in addition to cursors, z/y and x)!

Further features that will be added to Steam version of the game if successfully Greenlit:
  • Full online scoreboard integration, allowing you to compete against your Steam friends and show off your global ranking :)
  • Full Steam achievement integration

Note: the above specs are based on the oldest/worst machines that we have access to that the game still runs at 60FPS+ on. As a more simple reference, it runs at full frame rate on a Dell Inspiron M5040 laptop that I bought back in 2012 for around £300.

Covered this in the video review above. Only thing I can add on to it is good luck on the Steam Greenlight! Had a damn fun time playing this game!

Came here from Rock Paper Shotgun. The writeup there made me want to buy your game verrry much.

Hello GDC, just replying to say that the art has already been been done by Folmer Kelly - that is what you are looking at in the screens & video above. The game is finished and on sale outside of steam - the only changes that will be made are the steam integration modifications :)

This looks extremely weird. In a good way. It's also awesome to heard Folmer Kelly is making the art (Battle Golf and Wrassling are one of my favourite games on my Oneplus)

With these changes, I believe your Greenlight will be a success, and hope you'll do well with this cool-looking game idea!

We are running the Game Development World Championship and would like to see you participate. It's good for your visibility and won't cost you a penny.

Thanks Roger! It IS a fun game, but don't take my word for it, grab a copy yourself from itch.io or Game Jolt :)

Conga is out already, just not on Steam! ;)
