Progress Update #29

Hi Peoples!

We're getting close to completing development on our twin-stick shmup A Quiver of Crows!
Here's a status update:

Music
Alice has been working hard writing more music (while also polishing up some level designs). Here's the latest track she's created. Listen to it! It's awesome!

Bugs & Beta
The game is now entering its final beta. The team has been chipping away at testing while also fixing bugs and design issues as they arise. We're not doing a let's play video this month so that we can focus on these final tasks.

Animation vlog
Danny's been uploading some short animation behind the scenes videos. In each video Danny shows an animated asset and explains which Spine (animation tool) features he used for creating some of the effects. We added a bunch of these videos to our Game Development playlist on YouTube - check them out if you're interested in animation:

T-Shirt
We designed a t-shirt! Actually, we wore these during MomoCon while we were exhibiting the game a few months ago. Buy one and represent your corvid spirit!

Progress Update #28

Hi All!

Another month, another progress update on our upcoming twin-stick shoot'em up: A Quiver of Crows. We are finished with the gameplay aspects of the game - all 26 stages are done. We are now working on the details of the game that make it more polished such as achievements, sound, music, Steam controller, etc.

Developer Speed Run Let's Play Video
Here we show off the Japanese localization, the settings menu, and speed run through a stage.

New Monsters


  • Evil Eye Winged Creatures - There are currently three variations of these winged evil eye monsters in game. Their inclusion gives the game a very old-school shmup-y feel of bullet hell dodging.
  • Chained monster - no screenshot of this monster yet. They are like vicious chained guard dogs.

Weapon Upgrade Level 4

This means all 4 different types of weapons now have a level 4 version. Plasma weapon has 5 simultaneous plasma bullets, the laser is now screen-length, etc.

Settings Menu


Want to play the game in windowed mode, without music, and with half the sound volume? Now you can! Controller customization is also available.

Localization

The game will be localized to Korean, Japanese, Russian, Portuguese, Spanish, and French.

About This Game

A twin-stick shmup set in a grim world cursed by demons and ghouls.

Frantic Battles in a Grim World

  • Unlike most shmups, this world is made up of flesh, bones, and dirt instead of the common rigid objects such as ships set in space.
  • Each enemy type has a unique set of behaviors.
  • Most foes do not follow preset patterns. Instead, they try to hunt you down.
  • Some enemies fly in close for melee combat. Others will shoot from a far away range.

Co-op Twin-Stick Action

  • The game blends the insanity of shmups with the free range of motion of twin-stick shooters.
  • Find a friend. Find a couch. Have tons of fun with the optional single-screen couch co-op!

Upgradeable Weapons, Bombs, and Shields

  • Collect and enhance a variety of weapons. Influenced by traditional shmups, watch as your weapons’ firing trajectory and pattern change with each upgrade.
  • From heat seeking quills to things that go BOOM, collect them all and use them to crush your foes!
  • Upgrade your shields to withstand relentless attacks.

Coming to Windows, Mac, Linux

  • Best played with a twin-stick controller. Steer with the left stick, aim with the right.
  • Never fear! You can also use your keyboard and mouse.
