WHAT IS IT: Rather recent shmup. The developer is clearly well versed in both paleontology and shoot em' ups.

WHY IS IT HERE: It's a huge, high quality game. On top of that it has a neat sense of humor, a metal-as-fuck soundtrack and several secrets. As mentioned before, the dev obviously knows how great shmups are made and the game oozes both originality and great inspiration.

BUT REALLY: The selling point, however, is that everything is a prehistoric aquatic creature....IN SPACE. There's a good deal of cool mutation as per sci-fi standards. Ever fought a literally armored anomalocaris in a duel in a space station? Well you're about to. The bosses all get their legit latin names slapped in your face in the warnings to boot.

Did I mention the little story there is is pretty touching? But enough talk, check out this official video.

This video should provide all the visual stimulus needed to appreciate the game.

Grab the game here

Buy it here to support the dev, if you end up liking it enough. Also contains demo version.

Some tips and secrets

Some weapons have hidden features. Thunder fires forward if you don't move when firing. Ripple releases a burst shot if timed right. The basic weapon shields you at point blank (if you power it up).

Hope you enjoy this great but obscure title.
Keep your dignity.
