900, a rather trippy arcade shooter, is now available

The self-described score attack type game involves controlling an entity that absorbs universes to grow.

900 [Official Site] certainly is… something. This one is somewhat hard to describe. Gameplay consists of shooting at incoming objects in a 360 degree radius around your strange and colorful ball. You absorb the destroyed bits and grow larger and the action gets faster and more intense. What’s otherwise a normal arcade experience is punctuated by all the odd stylistic choices with weird colors and backgrounds. And having played a few minutes… it’s certainly something rather out there. It feels like I should be in an altered state of mind to really get the game but, hey, at least the basic gameplay is tried and true.

There are also a few caveats when it comes to the port due to limitations of the engine, but the game comes with a readme file that provides workarounds.

The game has been release on itch and is soon headed to Steam, after making it through the now-defunct Steam Greenlight process. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

History, sci-fi, technology, cooking, writing and playing games are things I enjoy very much. I'm always keen to try different genres of games and discover all the gems out there.

Oh and the name doesn't mean anything but coincidentally could be pronounced as "Buttery" which suits me just fine.
