What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

RetroShooti has been developed as a side-project for our company for the last four years. In the last year we have decided to instead focus all our energies onto it, as we believe that the game is worth the extra effort. The game is also our first major release so we want to get it right from the start. By releasing the game on Early Access, we hope not only to let you enjoy everything we have completed so far in the game as of right now, but also allow you to support us and give feedback on the game, so we can improve it and complete it as soon as possible!

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

The full version of RetroShooti is near completion, and we hope to finish it by the end of 2021. Even if that weren't the case for whatever reason, we will be working constantly on the game regardless, for as long as it takes, no matter what.

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The Early Access Club version of RetroShooti includes all the content available for the game today, including both Act I and II, featuring 22 levels and 8 bosses, plus a sample of the first levels of Act III.

Also, Acts III and IV, with its 18 levels and 9 bosses, will be made available to play as soon they are completed, and the game will be leaving Early Access as soon as all acts, levels and bosses in the game are made available.

Even still, the game will continue to be updated even after it leaves Early Access, as we have many more tentative concepts for the game beyond the scope of what we consider the first "complete version." These features will be announced and released as they are implemented. In other words, we will do our best to reach 100% and then go even beyond that!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

RetroShooti is completely designed in terms of gameplay, graphics and score from beginning to end, which means that there won't be any major alterations to the game's design or gameplay in the future. However, although 80% of the game is already completed, we will only be sharing the 60% of gameplay we feel completely confident on right now, as we hope to leave a good impression and not spoil the fun of what's to come next!”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan to gradually raise the price of RetroShooti as new levels, features, bosses and other gameplay content are added to the game.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We invite members of the Early Access Club to provide feedback in terms of gameplay, bugs, and other general questions and suggestions for the game in its Steam forums, which we will be reading and responding to constantly as development of the game continues. Other forms of contact might be announced on the forum as interest in the game increases. We hope that, together, we can make RetroShooti into the best game it can be!”

About This Game

There is a great big wacky rainbow world out there in the universe, and Shooti—our spaceship-shaped friend and hero— must travel through it all to finally come back home! In a psychedelic starway filled with aliens, treasure, heroes and all sorts of fluffy friends, our hero will valiantly clash, jump and roll, with the choice to either avoid incoming danger, or dutifully bring on justice by laser gun. Will you help Shooti survive in this crazy scrolling highway of oncoming traffic, space debris and technicolor lunacy? We wish you the best luck on your voyage thru the stars!

Mesmerize Games proudly presents RetroShooti, a space dreams shoot 'em up game by all-purpose artist and game designer Kid MarsCat☆, featuring an original chiptunes soundtrack by her project Lucca, and all kinds of cute funny small creatures and evil foes, all drawn in an unique goofy pixel art style — a cross between early arcade graphics and wacky doodles and cartoons!
