Shiden An Explosion Packed Arcade Style SHMUP To Arrive Soon On Desura

By - | Views: 5,374
Shiden is a arcade style SHMUP (Shoot em up). Shiden takes influence from games like DoDonPachi, Cho Ren Sha 68k and Mars Matrix. In these styles of game the player is a single ship that must face thousands of enemies and dodge all of their bullets whilst causing as much carnage as possible. While this may make you seem overpowered, your ship is actually noticeably weaker than most enemies, taking only a single shot to be destroyed. With a low entry barrier stemming from a simplistic control scheme, to a high skill ceiling for those interested in second loops, TFB and 1cc runs, SHMUP's are a genre of game that offer something for everyone. 

Sounds good, it was funded on Kickstarter and is due to hit Desura on the 10th of December.

It looks flipping mental, see below:

Had to use a screen-shot since Desura seem to have removed the ability to embed videos and some developers seem to have no trailer anywhere else.

This game is crazy hard!

If you didn't Kickstart it and want it now, just get it from Humble.
