Nandeyanen!? is an horizontal 2D shoot’em up in which the player takes the role of Tenguman, a Japanese long-nosed goblin who wakes up after a thousand year sleep to see the world overrun by an army of mythical pranksters. With visuals and a storyline thought as homages to the 1991 Nec Pc-Engine game “Hanatakadaka!?” (“Super Long-Nose Goblin”), the gameplay introduces challenging mechanics such as bullet counter and blast pods. First step into the harsh and time-consuming world of video game design, the game was entirely financed by our stubbornness, naivety and friendship. In summer 2014, the three first stages (Mountain, Forest, Temple) of Nandeyanen!? will be released under the title Nandeyanen!? - The 1st Sūtra.

Hello toma,

Tout d'abord...désolé désolé et encore désolé mais on a pris un peu de retard pour le submit XBLIG et on est encore en mode peer review. On espère avoir le jeu dispo durant le mois d'août.

Cela dit, on espère bien sûr être à la hauteur de tes chaleureuses remarques! On est bien sûr aussi très impatient de pouvoir lire tes critiques une fois que tu auras tenguman entre les mains!

Merci encore pour ta patience
David de chez Tchagata games

Très japonais et très réussi. Je l'achète dès qu'il sort si le prix est raisonnable. En plus, en tant que bilingue français-japonais, j'apprécie de voir des mots japonais ici et là !

Merci beaucoup all_zebest, ça nous donne un max de motivation pour continuer. Le jeu sera à un prix extrêmement raisonnable comme il a surtout été fait par des passionnés. Bien que les visuels soient prioritairement en japonais, le jeu pourra être joué en japonais, en anglais et en français. Nous espérons aussi pouvoir déjà inclure des doublages dans la première release. Merci encore
