New Arcen Roguelike on its way!
« on: October 08, 2015, 10:19:44 PM »
Arcen Games have suspended development on their 4X Stars Beyond Reach game, until March 2016, to work on an untitled  real-time "SHMUP" Roguelike!

Nifty---given their proclivities, could this perhaps, at long last, become a modern Tyrian-styled RL shmup?   Regardless, surely they'll put the feedback and lessons learned from Bionic Dues to good use.   8)

Ummm...as the devs themselves say it`s good and bad news - I was rather stoked for Stars Beyond Reach. Arcen are a truly original indie developer and their take on 4X genre could be really interesting.  However, the explanation for the delay is rather honest (if a bit muddled) and I believe they will release it next year anyway.

And I`m sure their RL shoot`em up can be pretty cool too...so good luck. It`s just funny how now we have a big wave of this kind of games incoming...is the RL platformer era over then? :P
