Featuring a Song by Laura Shigihara
Laura Shigihara is best known as the lead composer and sound designer for Plants vs Zombies, as the composer/lyricist/singer for To The Moon’s “Everything’s Alright”, and as the voice for the Singing Sunflower pet in World of Warcraft. We love Laura's music and we're super happy she contributed a song to our game! It's called "Better Days" - check out the music video below!

Behind the Scenes - Programming
For you programmers (or aspiring ones) out there, here's a run down of the development environment we've used and modified to create A Quiver of Crows: Developing a 2D Game for Windows, Mac, & Linux with Cocos2d-x. In the post, lead developer Chad highlights the languages and frameworks we use as well as the modifications we have made to overcome certain implementation challenges.

Prepping and Testing
The past month has mostly comprised of testing and prepping for launch. With all this testing, we're getting really good at the game! Which is good because we've also had to test the leaderboards a bunch too!

Launching October 19th!
That’s it for this progress update. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at crows@sheado.net or start a discussion in our Steam community hub. And don’t forget to wishlist the game on Steam and follow us on Twitter @AQuiverOfCrows for more frequent updates!

About This Game

A difficult 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.

Play on 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.
