Hello everyone! Major update on RFA! I just finished implementing all boss battles and thought I might show a new preview video. So, here we go!

The music in this clip is part of the Rigid Force Alpha soundtrack and has been composed by Michael Chait. Next steps on our way to world domination: Streamlining and gameplay polishing, finalization of code and shaders and main menu/UI stuff. Maybe we'll also add additional content besides the main mission mode, but we'll see about that soon!

Critiques and comments highly appreciated!

All those graphical features sound really bad for my 2009 laptop -_-

Almost all graphical features either have quality settings or can be turned off so I think this won't be a problem ;P

From what i read, I understand that you try to incorperate all the goodness and awesome that is shooting game into one but what kind of "core" does this game essentially is? A mindless "less than pixel" bullet-hell, a casual "play as you like" shooter or a "harder-than-hard" classic?

Hey DiamondBorne,

for the story mode we're aiming for a fair and attractive core gameplay, which does not necessarily exclude really difficult stages or bullet hell patterns. You might want to compare it to something like Gradius V or R-Type Final, just to throw in some of the big titles.

Apart from that, there'll also be special challenge stages and play modes that focus on certain gameplay aspects for more variety.
