STORY
The milk has run dry, cats around the world are forced to seek out new sources to get their fix. You and your team of milk mining kittens have overcome a fear of water to drill down under the ocean seabed and begin extracting vast reserves of what seems to be naturally forming full-fat milk.

Get ready for fast paced submarine shooter action, defending the kittens from disruptive mechanical sea creatures.
THE MILK MUST FLOW!

Aqua Kitty is a 2D pixel drawn arcade shooter, created with a love of the 16bit gaming era and late 80s video arcade games.

FEATURES

  • Play solo or with a friend - optional 2 Player Local CO-OP.
  • Fast paced horizontally scrolling looping underwater levels.
  • New optional easy mode campaign if you prefer a more relaxed pace of gameplay.
  • Branching map choice progression of levels.
  • Varying sea depths per level that affect gameplay.
  • A dual firing submarine with a rechargeable secondary weapon that needs to be carefully managed (it also upgrades as you progress through the game).
  • A variety of mechanical sea creatures to encounter each with differing behaviours to tackle.
  • Chain kill combo system allowing the more skilled player to maximise scores.
  • Depth based power-up system that gives partial control on the type and location of the power-ups created (allowing tactical advantage).
  • Hand drawn 16bit era styled pixel art graphics, displayed at a crisp 720p.
  • Awesome chiptune music taking inspiration from a mix of the best of the C64 and Amiga days.

Really nicely polished casual SHMUP.
I also made a little "first impression" kind of video about it.
Search for Ablaze with Greenlight: Aqua Kitty - Milk Mine Defender on YouTube. =)
Keep up the good work.

Hi all - we just found an issue where some controller types are not being detected properly. We will have a fix ready ASAP but in the meantime apologies for any inconvenience to those affected.

Looks great, reminds me of the original Defender on the Atari VCS which I played a lot in the early eighties. Will buy!

Is there any chance of a demo for the PC version?
My laptops kinda old and its not always the best of bedfellows with XNA games. I'd kinda like to check I can run the game before I buy it :v

Hi we don't have a plan for a demo currently, but I will look into it. What spec is your pc btw?

A core2duo PC from around 2007 with at least 1GB ram should run fine.

We tested a very weak machine, a Samsung NC10 netbook from 2008 (1.6Ghz Intel Atom N270) and the game ran BUT the framerate struggled.
