HORGIHUGH High-Score Challenge Contest Extension

Hey, all you Horgis out there!

It's been almost a month since HORGIHUGH's release, and we are ecstatic with the feedback we've received thus far. People are really digging the throwback vibe of the game it seems, which makes us super happy as that's what drew us to the game originally as well. So thank you to everyone who's checked out the game thus far! And be sure to keep spreading the word about it! Now, onto today's announcement!

As many of you know, the HORGIHUGH High-Score Challenge contest is set to end in about 12 hours. However, due to an unexpected surge in sales over the past week or so, we are extending the contest by two weeks to accommodate those who have picked up the game during the Summer Sale. Although HORGIHUGH was not discounted for the sale, that hasn't stopped people from picking it up in big numbers, which we didn't quite foresee.

So, what this ultimately means for those who have just purchased the game, as well as those who have already been playing it and even submitted their scores, you have more time to perfect your runs and rack up even higher scores! We've got some stiff competition at the top of the chart!

Again, we and the Japanese team want to thank you all for checking out HORGIHUGH and for spending your money and time on its experience. Here's to an exciting two weeks!

Cheers,

Bradly

STORY

This is the tale of a world different from that of our own. Various species live here, their lives governed by their own respective values and religions...
It is a world close to home in many ways. The various nations of this world avoided meddling with one another, which allowed their people to live in relative peace and harmony. However, this all changed when a terrible murder occurred in a small town, which cascaded into a great war that engulfed the entire world.

At the height of the war, the renown scientist Dr. Howard went on a journey, spurred on by his lamentations on the world's struggles. There, by pure chance, he found a glowing stone. Howard plunged himself into his research to try and analyze the stone's power, to create a device that could nullify any and all weapons and transmissions, which he hoped to use to resolve the war peacefully. But the world did not wait for Howard and his invention. Two years after the war had begun, it had come to an end.

Six years after the war's closure, invaders we call the "Gozarean" suddenly started attacking the planet, summoned by the signal that had been continually transmitted into outer space by the glowing stone that Professor Howard had long since forsaken. Only one country had the means of fighting back against the Gozarean—a country who had retained their weaponry in breach of the post-war peace accords.

They struck the sudden invaders with everything they had, but to no avail. The Gozarean's counterattack would go on to bring about massive casualties to the country's largest cities. Any attempts to establish communications with the Gozarean resulted in failure. In light of this verified alien threat, the world quickly unified and devised a plan of counteroffensive. However, due to the peace accords and the rash acts of their one militarized country, there were no powerful weapons remaining in the world.

—On a small island slightly south of the continent—

“Why kill them just because their values are different from our own?”
“It doesn't matter if we understand one another or not. Lives are lives.”
“Yeah. I didn't become a pilot to kill people.”

Such was the dialogue between the pair of pilots who evaded the war eight years earlier. They were Hugh and Figaro; two pilots who had retired to the south after the war started. In a fit of irony, the trusty vintage airplanes that they had retained in evading the war were the only weapons that eluded the effects of the Gozarean's weapon-nullifying technology, marking them truly as the world's final wings of hope.

Although they had continuously refused the nations' pleas for help, they slowly witnessed the invasion's effects on their family and friends, leading to their finally deciding to sally out and defend those dear to them.

Thus marks the start of our tale.
