2D Forever: Thunder Force IV Returns

Want. This. NOW:

What you need to know:

  1. It is not a Game Maker project: it’s actually being done from scratch in Open GL and Java.
  2. Right now it’s using recycled TF sprites, music, etc. but there will be new weapons, enemies, etc. as the project progresses.
  3. There has been discussion about including both a ‘casual’ mode and an RPG mode, I imagine in the vein of Radiant Silvergun. (The ‘casual’ mode would just be the vanilla game without the leveling aspects.)
  4. There’s talk about making a galaxy map with, basically, unlimited levels (in theory) but, of course, in practice limited to only several million.1

Anyway, there is no release date, etc., but wondersonic (the creator) is taking suggestions, etc., at his YouTube page and he could probably use a hand if you can provide some expertise, so get on it!

1 OK, OK: just thousands.

    After some months of inactivity, I started it again using the Unity3D engine; differences are… remarkable:

    A webplayer is also available now!
