Looks great, and judging by the level select screen, it isn't lacking in content either! Eagerly awaiting this one.

Any info on pricing? Thanks.

Yes, R-Type a definite influence on Z-Exemplar, along with Nemesis, Gradius, Salamander and other scrolling shooters of that ilk.




No pricing info yet but we'll let you know as soon as we do.


Thanks for your interest.

You dont understand what side-scrolling shmup means? Ever played gradius, salamander, r-type, darius burst, blazing star, or Deathsmiles?

The gameplay involves piloting your ship through various right-to-left scrolling landscapes, avoiding deadly enemy attacks and using a wide range of weapons to kill your foes. I'll post a video as soon as I can.

Hi all,

Just a quick progress update on Z-Exemplar...



Flesh out the flesh planets with enemy types - brain guns, patrollers swarmers...



... the flesh planets are probably most advanced right now.

... and the hive planets are slowly coming together.

More coming soon.

Thanks for reading,
