Hi Elliott, This is a great breakdown and very generous in sharing your process and insights, you came a long way from the vending machine days!
Are you planning on releasing the UE4 project to the public? Or only builds? I'd love to play around with it in the editor if possible!
Two guys from Russia are working on a very cool and fast retro-inspired project.
Skychasers is an awesome 2d arcade shooter about jets fighting futuristic sci-fi enemies. The project is story-driven and it’s got intense dogfights and giant bosses.
This is the official description of gameplay:
You are put in a cockpit of a 6th generation fighter jet, fully armed and capable of performing stunning maneuvers, but you are as fragile as your enemies, so mobility is your best friend here. The game is pretty hardcore but fair at the same time since you always have a chance to react to the upcoming threat and evade it.
The game features a story campaign with lots of unique mission objectives and epic boss fights.
The game is not finished yet, but we really hope it will finally find a home in Steam or some other platform.
