This game is my baby. I've been working on this video game in the dark for three and a half years, only a handful of people have seen it. When I saw the dawn of the N64 and the PSX, I saw the death of the side-scrolling genre as a staple of the game industry. Once the third dimension arrived, no one wanted to tap the potential of a 2d shooting game anymore. It's time for the category to have its justice.

I've been hard at work getting the graphics together. They're progressing nicely, but they're not finished. In order to get things up to par I revamped how the engine handles sprites, they're a lot more flexible now.

I've been hard at work getting the graphics together. They're progressing nicely, but they're not finished. In order to get things up to par I revamped how the engine handles sprites, they're a lot more flexible now.


There are updates I meant to show in the video, but didn't get to. Ziplines have been added, they allow for a fun way to get across a level quickly. I've also changed the hovercraft enemy from this video, to allow you to 'carjack' it and drive it around. You can still use any weapon, and ramming into people at high speeds does damage.

I'll keep working, and I'll also keep you guys informed.

I really like how this looks! Almost like a hyper-crazy naive-art-style original Duke Nukem, which can only be a good thing. Good luck with it!
