(It's pronounced All-Tea-OWN-Us:)


Hey guys!
I have just released my first commercial indie game. The game is a love-letter to the home computer arcade games of 80s and 90s, such as Phantis, Halloween Harry, Astro Marine Corpse and Jill of the Jungle. The game features tons of lush, varied and well animated pixel art and lots and lots of rockin' chiptunes by the legendary Jake 'Virt' Kaufman!

Trailer:


The story is silly, and goes sort of like this:
Galactic hero Serena S has been trolled on Spacebook. This is obviously a cause to embark on an epic quest to punish the troll in question, who just happens to be The Space Prince. Guide Serena through 7 stages of shmup action, jumping, shooting, and yet decidedly more jumping and shooting to her ultimate goal of total testicular annihilation of her foe.

Screenies:





Download Links :
Demo : Windows, Linux, OUYA
Full: Purchase DRM-Free via Humble Store (Windows and Linux versions so far - no Ouya version just yet)

Thank you guys.
Cheers!
darkfalzx.

I have the backer version from Legend of Iya. Playing on normal was pretty hard but I guess that's what you're going for a la classic Mega Man in a way. Is this the full version?

I got to the end of the first jungley stage but couldn't progress and I didn't know why. I had the ray gun and the gravity ring. How do you save? I'm guessing there are save points but didn't find any.  It was just frustrating having to kill the enemies just to have them respawn a few seconds later, seemed redundent.

Anyway really gorgeous art as always, will probably try again on the easier mode. Great concept too taking something modern and kind of putting a retro spin on it.

The enemies respawn endlessly - same as in most old games. Your points are also your money - you'll be thankful for respawning enemies once you find a store - character upgrades are pretty expensive.
After you kill the boss of the jungle - jump in the hole it leaves behind.

Sigh. Sorry I missed this topic, I did see about it on the KS page and I was glad to see you didnt let the fact that the character you were riffing off of was a barbarella clone and you went right ahead. congrats on that.

Also congrats on releasing your first inde game, gives me some hope for myself.
