Pretty impressive yet addictive with the Genesis controller!!

Yooooo... this has nothing to do with the game, but I'm a huge fan of your 'Ikaruga' project. Any chance that there are physical copies still around? I'm pining for that 7 inch!

lmao! small world! i don't think i have anything left from then. i just started playing shows with my drum machine again locally though and am having a blast so will be getting back to recording soon

I was back on this site randomly and I remembered our conversation. Happy to see you've made more games! I'll have to load them one the ol' Megadrive. Did you ever put together a bandcamp page? Curious to hear what you've been producing.

yo! yeah ive got several bandcamps of stuff (subdomains are: mantrid, dariusnoise, vvvvvvvv, thepiss, atrocitas), but haven't done anything in a while now... i am finding that making sega games is way, way, way more gratifying than writing songs that like 5 people end up listening to lol

Dude, thanks for sharing! As one of those five people, this shit fuckin' rips! But I get it - you gotta do what brings you joy and gives you the largest reach. You active anywhere besides itch.io?


Your game is pretty good. I really don´t know what you were thinking about as you said but let me tell you that it works. Congrats !

IANAL, but I think you are required to convey or offer the corresponding source according to section 6 of the GPLv3.

ty, have added source url along with homepage url -- i was unsure about this but have seen it done before on itch but couldn't dig it up. thanx again
