Don’t look at me, it’s just another slow morning while shows are off.
I was hoping something else new would pop up to match with MBF’s promo, but I guess I can toss up Astebreed since it’s the most impressive thing thus far, even if it’s still just a promo. They should stick to making more things like it and Ether Vapor and fewer strange flower fairy beat ‘em ups.
Anyway, rattling off some other things of note I’ve found (although I haven’t really looked that hard this time around)… in no particular order:
- Aqua Style’s re-releasing the first five games in their Touhou rougelike series as one standalone package.
- Easy Game Station is putting out some bizarre bumper cars game while Territoire stays in development hell.
- Lion Heart is putting out a trial for Tempest, which looks very much like a more evolved Mystic Chain pseudo-sequel.
- AQLoop is finally releasing World of TWAIN. Eh.
- Tasofro’s doing… whatever the hell they’re doing. I have no idea.
- Souv Circ’s been posting a billion tutorial videos for the horizontal SHMUP they’ve been developing for years .
- Ankake has moved on from their Y’s clone with Youmu to a Remilia one. Just a trial for C82 though.
- UTG is making a sequel to their isometric Suwako SHMUP. Now with more hopping and shooting.
- Cubetype’s making what appears to be a Touhou-based Suguiri clone
I’m sure there’s more and others, but… eh. It’s not a very exciting Comiket as far as full releases go, mostly because there are very very few. Oh well.
