Inspired by Djio's work on Shoot Fighter, and especially the video, I realized I'd never posted any youtubes of the game I've been trying to finish (it's officially finished). Here it is:

Whoah! I just got settled and

Whoah! I just got settled and tried the 2.0.14.25 build, and the game loaded up, all triggers working, and the game is running as fast on my laptop as it does in the arcade cabinet (which it has never done!). Amazing! I can't wait to work with the new build! Thanks and happy holidays!!

Here's a couple picks from my first OFFICIAL RELEASE PARTY!! (of which I will do many). Salt Lake City also has an arcade that has the only Dariusburst CS english-language arcade cabinet in the world and and some other rare games, I'm going to try and do my next release show there.

Hi Dpful,

Thanks for sharing the photos of your first official release party. I love the cabinet - it is perfect for your game with its high action, bold and bright graphics and amazing soundtrack. Very well done! :D

I'm also pleased that 2.0.14 is working properly for you now.

Happy holidays to you too.

Thanks again,
John

Hi Dpful,

That is amazing!! Thank you so much for sharing the video. It is great to be able to see the game in its entirety and I applaud your gameplay, music and visuals.

There are a few things in there (like the snake) that left me wondering how you'd achieved those effects - so very well done!! :D

The cabinet looks very cool too. You've painted it up really well and it's great to have a classic arcade cabinet for your game.

I'd like to direct people over to that video so they can see the exciting game you've created. Would you mind if we linked to it on twitter?

Thanks again,
John

I am impressed by the tight gameplay, the explosive visuals and the complex behaviors your game display (like the bosses)
Your game is really in tune with the music: a well-controlled chaos.

Thanks Djio and John! Yes absolutely share
The snake (at the end?) as well as almost everything in the game are animated gifs I got from the Internet and then processed and prepared. I think I searched for "psychedelic gifs". They appear throughout the 4th level.

Oh yeah, there's tracers leading to the center off of all the bright sprites-- the screen is mounted behind a big fresnel lens for magnification. That's what causes those optical effects.

Hey, just dropping a line for any lurkers or workers-- if anyone wants to know how I did anything in the game, please ask, I would LOVE to explain any of it, or use my experience with the kit to help anyone out. So again, don't hesitate to ask.
