If you like your shoot 'em ups, you need to look at PAWARUMI

It'll be released on itch.io at the very least.

the devs said they would consider multiplayer if they can sell sufficiently the game to spend time on a proper and well balanced multiplayer, it's a small team's first game.

I love it
Definitely differs from the other titles though you can see the dreamcast / ikaruga legacy.

there are three weapons. also depending on the colour combinations you can charge yor shield, super power or double damages, so it enables some kind of strategies.

yeah, considering Machinarium was on one of the first hib and considering how the situation improved meanwhile, it's sad to see they do not support us anymore.

been wondering... watching 320*240 games on an LCD causes much eyestrain afaik. some dosbox builds enable pixel shaders to mimic crt screen or enhance the picture. how do dosbox gog games look ? will I have to tweak each of them ?

btw... favorite pinball game for me is Slam Tilt (Amiga and PC). I wish it appeared one day on gog

other issue with some old gog or wine games : they temporarilt switch the screen resolution and mess up my desktop

Fantastic looking shoot 'em up 'Sky Force Reloaded' releases for Linux in two days

BTW, by default, Sky Force recognized my arcade stick as the 2nd player, and my Logitech gamepad as 1st player. It it possible to exchange them, without tweaking the Steam configuration or USB ports ? If I start the game with my arcade stick, it starts in 2 players mode

I guess a review will come, but you should also definitely have a look at this one : http://store.steampowered.com/app/610410/PAWARUMI/ . That's quite different, very impressive and with an original gameplay.
Linux build is up and works perfectly. It's in early access but close to completion. Misses last stage (will come next week) and cinematics (early 2018).
