RetroGunX Gets Its Own Original Soundtrack!

Happy New Year Everyone!

So, I recently ran into an issue with a Royalty Free track I bought for RetroGunX, essentially the main menu track and gameplay music. I since contacted the artist and enquired if they could supply me with costs for me to license some of their other tracks for RetroGunX, or if they would be interested in composing custom tracks for RetroGunX which I would pay for. Their reply was to the effect that only the loops in the bundle were Royalty Free, not the actual track, and so I was forced to remove the track from the game. All music in the latest update (version 0.1.4.d) is temporarily muted for now, but next week I’ll post another update with the new audio track.

So I’ve made contact with a brilliant sound design studio called Audio Militia, that will be composing an original custom soundtrack for RetroGunX! The first track will be done next week, with more tracks to follow in the coming weeks and months as budget allows.

I’ve been forced to take a step back these last 2 months to focus on some client work, but I’m eager to dive back into development of RetroGunX and take it to the next level! This is going to be an exciting year ahead for RetroGunX!

Thank you all for your support and patience! Game on!

Update v0.1.4.c

Hi everyone!

Thanks for being so patient!

As mentioned in the last announcement, when we updated our development software some bugs were introduced that forced us to temporarily rollback the game to the previous stable release. I'm pleased to announce that everything should be back up running now :)

If any of you do find any errors or bugs, please do let us know and we'll fix them ASAP!

We'll now get back to focusing on adding more content. Whoohoo!

Cheers, and enjoy!

About This Game

Before the modern games of today, games were simple, uncluttered with special effects, easy to play, difficult to master, and the goal for the most part was to simply survive. RetroGunX is just that!

Take a nostalgic trip down memory lane in this first person arcade shooter game in VIRTUAL REALITY. Blast your way though unique waves of enemies and mega bosses, each with their own strategy to defeat you, as you fight to destroy the ominous presence known only as RedSkull, and claim your spot on the High Score Board. The game has a very clean and minimalistic approach to the art style, which is reminiscent of those classic 8-bit games from the 70s.

In RetroGunX, you truly feel like hero inside the game, literally. You know that feeling you get when you're being watched? At any time, either during the main menu, high score screen or even during the game itself, look behind you to see a mysterious figure that not only watches your every move, but also controls your every move, though the arcade screen.
