Yeah so, some of you already know I've been beavering away on a Japanese styled 2D vertical scrolling shoot em up for the xbox 360 for a while now.

It's going to be released soon. I doubt any of you will actually play it, but since it will only cost 80MSP there's no excuse to not give it a go when it's released.

Google Chronoblast for more info..:)





If you're wondering why so many bullets and you've never seen anything like this before - the genre is called "Danmaku" which pretty much translates to 'Curtain Fire' or as most of us like to call it 'Bullet Hell'. This game is inspired by a cult classic entitled "DoDonPachi" which basically translates to Angry Bee Boss. Yes, really. The final boss is an angry bee.

The games are challenging, but easier to play than they initially look. As with most shoot em ups, the reward is not in credit feeding your way to the end credits, but instead completing the game on a single credit and playing for score.

Games stalled due to a bug in trial mode, but is going for resubmission this Friday. Wish it luck please, it might feed my kids! :-)

Yes, you are supposed to play these games with your monitor on your side. We call this 'tate'

Cheers,
Steve

I'm up for it, I'll get it when it comes out and play it solidly for a bit until I realise I'm terrible at games and especially hard games but I look forward to playing it anyway.

When you say 'your monitor on your side' do you mean I have to turn my TV on its side because I can't do that :coolface:

It has peer to peer high scores, so your scores are shared with up to 32 other people playing the game.

HOW COOL AND HIGH TECH IS THAT?

What do you mean you're gutted? That it's xbox only?

I'm gonna do a PC port too. Don't worry.

I spent quite a long time on it. It's written in C# using the XNA framework which is a wrapper around all sorts of things. It's not really a game creator application, just a framework that offers useful things such as methods for polling an xbox controller, rendering libraries for sprites/3d... Kinda a wrapper for directX really :-)

Where to start?

void Update()
{
// make game here!
}

Not sure I'll play it, too much going in in life. But I bought it anyway. Hope it takes off for you.
