Developer is playing coy, but I get impression they will be adding mid-run resume (auto-save).

Someone told me here on VGchartz it's a shmup but, I checked wikipedia it says It's roguelike , third person shooter.

Anyway's Great score , I don't want to reiterate what I said on Playstation nation here since this the gaming thread not playstation thread.

watch some gameplay vids. Shmup is a very apt descriptor of how the third person shooting elements are handled.

Ok I'm not knowledgable of other shmups , But , I guess I'll consider it shmup in 3d ? IDK? But, I only know the Traditional type of 2d shmups like traditional vertical and horizontal either flight or walking, though , there's the on rail shooters also called shmups but not traditionally? You know I think I need to research this more . Thanks . Hope Sony buys Housemarquee So, Sony can unleash House Marquee full potencial. This studio is amazing .

Congratulations. The trailer was really good and the reviews are great, but seems like it isn't the type of game for me.

Yeah, One of the things that made me reconsider my stance on the game was that it looked like an accurate translation of the Shoot-Em-Up genre to a third person game. We've seen top down and in the case of Furi, from behind, but this is a third person shooter that has plenty of elements of shoot-em-ups. Enemies shoot waves of balls and lasers at you, you have to use your nimble abilities to jump, dash, and attack back. It's a shoot-em-up in the truest form, it's just not 2D. 

I do love shmups, so that made me think this game looked fun. Then I saw more gameplay and read the reviews and picked it up immediately. I do not regret this.

#11 on Amazon and has been consistently moving up! Way better than I expected. I’m even more impressed by this, bc I feel like a higher than normal proportion of people will buy this digitally, bc it still has a low/medium budget feel to it, as well as being a new IP. I’m planning on buying digital for these reasons, despite buying most games physical.

I think a lot of people slept on this until they saw the reviews. I had no plans of buying it at full price until I saw reviews and listened to some podcasts. Now, I plan to buy tonight. 

I had never even heard of the game until today and bought it off Amazon after reading a couple reviews. Nice surprise, always had good times with Housemarque. Awesome to see them make the leap to a so called full game.

I’m surprised you had never heard of it, but that’s awesome you bought it that quick haha. I just bought it digitally 2min ago and am waiting now for it to download.
