Hawkwing is a retro shmup in development by Los Geekos Studio. The game attempts to recreate the feeling of late 80’s / early 90’s arcade and consoles shmups, with lot of action, colorful 2d low resolution sprites, medium sampling quality sounds and a catchy soundtrack.
Pawarumi is a verizontal shmup, inspired by the likes of Ikaruga and Radiant Silvergun but with its own original mechanics, set in an universe based on south american folklore and 90s pop culture reference.
It’s currently on Steam Greenlight, so vote for it to see more high-quality shmups on Steam.
The game is being made in Unity by some experienced developers who have previously worked on titles such as Assassin’s Creed, Ruse and The Crew. Take a look at the forum post to see some development screenshots from the Unity editor.
Game Jolt are hosting a 72 hour game jam, where you must make a game with a scoreboard using the Game Jolt API. The theme will be announced when the jam starts. Apparently the theme will be “well-received by SHMUP lovers.”
