A Quiver of Crows - Twin-Stick Shmup [Steam Greenlight]

by Sheado Thu Jan 08, 2015 11:30 pm

Hey Everybody,

We're a small indie team of 3 who grew up on Atari, Nintendo, and Sega Genesis. We're game developers now and although we make modern games, we still draw upon our favorite retro gameplay designs.

We just launched a Steam Greenlight campaign for our latest game: A Quiver of Crows. We'd really appreciate it if you could follow the link, vote, and give us feedback.

Some of our favorite game genres are shmups (R-Type) and 360 degree top-down shooters (Gauntlet). We decided to take our favorite elements from both genres and make A Quiver of Crows a side-view twin-stick shmup/shooter. We also wanted the game to aesthetically stand out from the crowd, so we went with a less common theme than the more typical ships and outer space environments.

Looking forward to your feedback!
:D

So, how does a quiver of crows differ from a murder of crows?

haha good question =]

A Quiver of Crows is much more deadly than a murder or crows. Our crows shoot laser beams, plasma, and bullets.. not to mention the heat-seeking quills. Given their extreme capabilities we felt it was ok to borrow the quiver designation from cobras (cobras collective noun: quiver)

hey Everybody,

It's been a while since I updated this thread. We've been working non-stop on our game since we got through Greenlight and we're finally at a point where we can start getting feedback.

We're looking for Early Beta testers who meet the following requirements:
  • Prefer playing with a controller.
  • Are ok with bugs and crashes.
  • Willing to fill out a questionnaire to help us improve the game.

If you're up for it, please contact us at crows@sheado.net to get started.
If you're on the fence, take a look at our latest developer let's play to see if this game is for you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bLuP8NoMOFY

Thank You!!
