We should talk more about this, all of us... I work multiple jobs in gaming and entertainment in general so I burn out once or twice a year and I need months to recover. Screw that.

@alex if i had to guess, they just finished two back-to-back AAA games in the same franchise and some people are seeing it as a good time to transition without burning bridges? aka business as usual?

Skychasers: Pixel Art Supersonic Jet Arcade

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.

Yo, one of the devs here!
Actually, It’s more like one guy from Denmark and the other guy from Russia. First coder who was working with me during prototype stage was russian as well, but he decided to leave the team long time ago. So, if it’s possible, can you fix the title please?

As for accusations of ripping off luftrausers, I’m kinda tired of arguing with people at this point so I’ll just say that Rami played the build himself and he’s totally ok with this game’s existence.

This is basically a carbon-copy of Luftrausers; even the name is the same. The developers claim to have never heard of it, but I refuse to believe it given how uncannily similar the player aircraft behaviour is.
