Don't let the cute looks of it fool you, ProtoCorgi made with the free and open source Godot Engine is going to be a shoot 'em up to keep an eye on.
In the style of some of the classics like R-Type and a great many others, it's a side-scroller so the screen slowly moves to the right as you destroy enemies and progress through.
Developed by Kemono Games, this pup really does mean business and since it has a demo available for Linux I gave it a run. It feels great, looks good and the Linux demo seems to work very nicely. I'm really looking forward to seeing the full version of this one! Currently the Linux demo is only on itch.io, however the developer said it should be on Steam soon also.
