Any news, what's the project status?
No news. I did not find a publisher. I work on other projects.

Just a sudden inspiration: "When in doubt just ask the Chinese for news".
Help. Spanish TVs are brain washing people to be hostile to me.

But they're German?

But yeah, as far as releasing games they… barely are heard of. They're more known as a supplier (especially the cartridge shells, those are pretty cheap).
Sik is pronounced as "seek", not as "sick".

Who wants a physical copy of the game in the collection?
I will issue 100 copies (minimum). If you want CIB edition for $ 35 + shipping ~ $ 10. Write here. When the game comes out. I will contact you and offer you to buy. I will give links to eBay and other options.

CIB:
Hard box (made in China, Low quality)
Cartridge (made in Russian Federation, High quality)
Color manual (made in Russian Federation, High quality)
Color card (made in Russian Federation, High quality)

I think of the IndieGoGo campaign. But I doubt that I will collect at least $ 2,000 there. This amount will be needed only for production. Everyone who supports the project will be inscribed on a special screen of thanks in the game.

If you go for about US$ 2000-3000 you may achieve this goal using indiegogo.

I suppose the game is 100% done, so people may support it. If the game wasnt done, it would be a problem to achieve this goal.

You may provide a demo version, maybe with the first stage.

Well done. Checking what Chinese have to offer is always a good idea. As is today, for example.

As they say "Follow yesterday light to find today's blast"... I'm pretty sure someone in the Universe says that...

Release!

BUY - https://www.ebay.com/itm/223948717776
$32 + $10 Shipping

Tell everyone who wanted to buy.

My latest project has been in work since 2018, and it has already entered the final stage of production. This new game is a homebrew "Contra: Hard Corps" clone with many original elements and gameplay-changing mechanics. For example, the player character has no control over the jump physics, like in classic action platformers, such as "Castlevania". The graphics rely heavily on the classic comics style, with clearly outlined silhouettes and text balloons, like in the well-known Sega Genesis / Mega Drive platformer, "Boogerman".

The gameplay makes use of two separate genres: the platform shooter and the scroll shooter. There are 11 levels overall, and every level has its own boss at the end. Two levels let the player control a rocket scooter, and there is also a level that features a hoverboard that the player can master - just like in "Back to the Future".

The soundtrack for the game is composed by a friend of mine, and features over 15 long, vibrant and expressive chiptune melodies specifically created for this project.
