This looks really cool it's like super crate box, but just way more awesome!
When do you think it will be out?
Also is it endless?

I really love how there is random guns, don't change that!

More awesome than super crate box? Awesome!

It should be out in a month or two depending on how busy my University workload is, and yeah it's endless (to the point that it's pretty impossible to stay alive).

I downloaded the alpha, however it gave me this:

Error
cannot load joystick2.mfx. This object might need an external program or library not yet installed

...And i can't open it

Oh , just realised you need a joystick... Please add buttons!

Google tells me that you need a newer / specific version of directX which is apparently here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/e...a-9b6652cd92a3

Sorry about that, didn't realise that would be an issue!

@jumpman475: Thanks, we'd like to target as many platforms as possible but it depends on the engine we use supporting them. We'll definitely be trying!

Thank, it works now!
Here are my thoughts about the game so far:

First of all, even though it's just an alpha, it is really great. I really like infinite levels/ guns. Oh, and also the bosses ( add as much of them as you can )
Just some ideas:


1. Add multiplayer!

I love the creativity of the monsters - e.g the spiders
Keep adding more!

This game needs more popularity!

Ok, gotta go play some more nightmerica!
