X Caeli

Postby Nerd Commando » Wed Feb 11, 2015 5:32 pm

X Caeli is an ugly RPG / Shmup bastard. Too shmup for the rpg fans, too rpg for the shmup fans. It takes the basic Space Invaders gameplay (which probably doesn't even count as a shmup these days, but how do you call it then), crossbreeds it with the Tyrian / Jets n' Guns style gun shops and actually evolves those into a full-pledged RPG system (because they always felt like a mini-RPG system to me). It's also fixed less on dodging & memorising patterns (as, obviously, that's quite dull in the 1d movement) and more on precise weapon usage & combo-play.

The gameplay is supposed to be pretty good (if not exactly balanced - it's still beta), but we've spent lots of efforts to make sure that each gun is unique, memorable & useful. Enemies also differ quite strongly in their tactics so the player won't be able to kill each wave with one and the same combo, he'll need to adapt. But, anyhow, as out of 1.5 people, who have downloaded the demo, no one has even managed to read the tutorial to the end (our game totally requries spending half an hour with the tutorial and then dying for about an hour until you understand the flow of it - I guess it's moronic of us to make such high skill-entry game this day).

Anyways, if you want a short post-mortem on this - we should've put more boobs in it as it's the only way to attract players to the hardcore/bad graphics games these days.

Awww, I'm stupid - somehow managed to miss the youtube button. Anyway, the game is pretty misunderstood atm so I've made just one vid that should more or less explain the direction we're going for:
