"Ace Ferrara And The Dino Menace" - space combat, romance and cat augmentation
This is my upcoming game "Ace Ferrara And The Dino Menace", a space combat sim in the tradition of X-Wing/Wing Commander, set in an 80s cartoon style universe. Spacefaring dinosaurs have declared war on mankind and only the Proton Riders - an oddball group of superpilots - can save Earth from certain defeat!
Ace Ferrara is a military cadet who just scored the most prestigious internship in the galaxy: aboard the Proton Riders' flagship Discordia. However, between escorting coffee freighters and manning the fax machine, Ace soon discovers that being an intern among his heroes isn't quite what he dreamed it would be. Step into Ace Ferrara's shoes, meet cybernetically augmented cats, daredevil adventurers and the enigmatic Double-Doctor Proton, and work yourself up from lowly intern to galactic hero!
The game is coming to iOS in August 2014, with Android/PC/Mac ports planned later in the year. Controls have been designed with touchscreens in mind, which is why movement is restricted to a 2D plane (i.e. left/right, no up/down).
I'm working on this on my own, doing everything from code to graphics and music. So if there's anything you want to know more about, please feel free to ask!
