Minimalism


Game mechanics

With only 8 directional movement and a single action button we achieved a deep gameplay experience:
  • Proximity damage multiplier: The closer you get, the harder you hit.
  • Charge attack: Stop shooting to charge, shoot to unleash the an attack that cleans bullets in it's way.
  • Parry: Press the shoot button right before getting hit to parry.
  • Parry dash: After a successful parry, keep the shoot button pressed for a short invulnerability time and speed boost.
  • Damage proration: On hit, the player activates a shield that lowers the next hits damage.

Graphics

We created a visually pleasing look inspired by flat principles.
  • No HUD: We replaced the traditional HUD by other indicators such as screen shakes, sound effects, color effects. Now the player will be more focused on the fast paced action.
  • Random generated backgrounds: Every time the game starts a new background will be generated. All backgrounds are carefully designed with colors and shapes that will surprise the player senses every time.
