Super Galaxy Squadron Goes TURBO!

It's been a long time coming but it's finally here!

Super Galaxy Squadron EX TURBO!

The latest, greatest and FINAL edition of Super Galaxy Squadron.

What started as a simple college project by Nick Clinkscales has turned into what we think is one of the most full featured, fun and accessible SHMUPs in the galaxy.

So what's new in SGS EX TURBO?!
  • SHIPS - Three new ones (now 17 total) with alt fire modes.
  • MODES - BOSS RUSH is finally here. Can you defeat ALL of them in record time?
  • FEATURES - SLO-MO "Bullet-Hell Time". Slow down time to dodge bullets like Max Payne.
We've also added new leaderboards and achievements - we're good like that.

Now, if you recall... the sales of the original SGS benefitted Child's Play Charity

So how fitting that SGS EX was just a part of the Humble Freedom Bundle!

We couldn't be more proud to do some good for the galaxy.

SGS EX TURBO will of course be offered as a FREE upgrade to anyone who already owns the game. Just like EX was a free upgrade. Just like any and all upgrades to New Blood's games will ALWAYS be free. Don't tell our accountant.

We'll be keeping the price of the game at $9.99 through launch week until March 13th when we'll raise it to $11.99. This will be the final final final price forever and always. So get in now!

That being said, both Nick and us here at New Blood want to thank you for taking this journey with us over the last three years and hope we'll see you again SOON™ when the inevitable once again happens... and you're once again called upon to... SAVE THE GALAXY \o/

About This Game

2438. Eleven years after the First Ceti War. The United Interstellar Federation and a secluded alien race from Tau Ceti are locked in a tense stalemate. Seventeen of the best pilots in the Federation have been recruited to single handedly win the inevitable second war.

Super Galaxy Squadron EX Turbo is an expansion/remaster/one-step-from-a-sequel to 2015's Super Galaxy Squadron, and takes the original game's frantic action and modern accessibility to vastly greater heights. New and returning features include:

  • Seventeen ships with unique stats and weapons to suit a variety of playstyles
  • Six stages of classic shmup action (and savage bosses) in Arcade Mode
  • An infinite onslaught to satisfy your scoring itch in Endless Mode
  • The supreme timed challenge of Boss Rush Mode
  • A range of difficulty options, from calm and newbie-friendly to basically impossible
  • Fully voiced cutscenes for the two people looking for a good story
  • New mechanics like Overdrive & Focus that help you kill more things and get more points
  • A (nearly) complete graphical overhaul
  • Still a whole lot of explosions (like you were ever worried)

Feeling nostalgic, or just want to see what's changed? Super Galaxy Squadron EX Turbo includes the original Super Galaxy Squadron, so load up your smaller, slightly less pretty ship for a trip down (two year old) memory lane. Or don't. It's up to you.
