JustOneMoreGame’s gamingdevcrush on Locomalito continues unabated, with news that his latest game “They Came from Verminest” due out next Wednesday February 15.

Indie shmup generates mp3 bullet madness

November 10, 2010

Header: Shmusicup

Ok, this is a bit different.

Shmusicup is a hybrid of a rhythm/music game and a shoot’em up. It’s a vertical scrolling shooter (of the bullet-hell variety) where the enemy bullet patterns are generated by any mp3 chosen from the player’s music collection.

Youtube trailer below.
