An Oath to the Stars

Postby AttilioHimeki » Thu Mar 03, 2016 1:03 am

Hi there ;)

It's my first message in this forum, so nice to meet you everyone! I'm Attilio, game director at Himeki Games, a game studio based in London.

I'd love to show our first game, An Oath to the Stars, a dramatic danmaku SHMUP inspired by Ikaruga, Dodonpachi and ProGear, with anime characters and a very peculiar art style.

Today we've published our Reveal trailer and created a Steam Greenlight page. It would be great if you could take a look and share your feedback, we've really put a lot of work and love on this :)

Here's the link: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/f ... =631521991

If you'd like to know more about the game and the development, we started a dev-blog at day-one. It's pretty cool to see how we got from zero to our trailer! Here's the link: http://himekigames.tumblr.com/

The game is currently about 70% into development, so any feedback to make it better would be highly appreciated!

If you like the game, please make sure to up-vote and spread the word, would mean a lot to us!

Cheers!

I love the how the graphics are very nice on the eyes. Very clean and vivid. The bullet patterns look unique as well. Good luck with your launch.

Thanks for your feedback, I'm glad you like the game :) And thanks for the news piece, really appreciate it!

This week we've showcased the game for the first time at a game fair in Berlin, and got a great reception. We'll share more news in the blog very soon!

Hi everyone! :)

We've just released some new screenshots of the game. Following feedback during the campaign and various demos, we're completely revamped the in-game UI, improved readability and various other improvements.

We're also showing for the first time a new boss, and multiplayer mode!

You can find the updates in our blog: http://himekigames.tumblr.com/

Please make sure to share your opinions and feedback ;)

That's looking really nice now. Reminds me of the UI and bullet colors in Wartech Senke No Ronde.
