[Steam][Win/Mac/Linux] A Quiver of Crows - October 19th

Postby MsTei » Tue Sep 20, 2016 11:48 pm

Long time no update! After two and half years of hard work our small team of three is nearly done developing our twin-stick shmup where you play as a crow!

Steam page for A Quiver of Crows

  • 360-degree twin-stick chaos!
  • Local / couch co-op so you don't have to go it alone
  • Upgradable weapons, bombs, and shields
  • Unique environments and physics not common in shmups
  • Play using controller or keyboard & mouse

In the animated gif, you can see the four different types of weapons we cycle through.

Animator's Vlog - Danny talks about animating the toucan. In the gif above, you can see the ghostly toucan in action - who you gonna call??


A developer Let's Play - Chad and I play through a level while talking about the updates we added. This is months ago, really old Let's Play, but can give you a better idea of what the gameplay is like.



The game will be launching for Windows, Mac, & Linux on Steam. It will be priced at $14.99 / 14,99€ / ¥1,480 and there will be a 10% discount during the first week of launch. So make sure to wishlist now and get the game during launch week! Don't let the beauty fool you - it is a challenging game. I made sure of it. I'm the level designer, as well as co-developer, balancer, and composer...that's why I haven't been posting much, because I'm so busy!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at crows@sheado.net or start a discussion in our community hub. And don’t forget to follow us on Twitter @AQuiverOfCrows for more frequent updates!

Our lead programmer has just posted a Gamasutra article entitled Developing a 2D Game for Windows, Mac, & Linux with Cocos2d-x. It goes into the technical stuff we've had to struggle through when making this game.
