Introduction
Hi there, folks! It's been a very very long time since the last time I posted a thread on this board. I have been busy with real life and as such, wasn't able to program much, but I'm back now! :awesome: Not entirely sure how many people actually care, but whatever...
So, this is my latest project - a mash-up between Luftrausers and magic mushrooms.

Gameplay
In terms of actual gameplay, I am aiming to achieve that awesome feeling you get when you are, well... awesome! I want the game to be over-the-top in terms of action and visuals, as well as in terms of hectic-ism. How this well actual reflect, well, it's a side-view plane-shooter (is that even a term?), like the classic arcade games of yore, with a touch of the aforementioned Luftrausers.

Great job so far! I am a huge fan of Luftrausers and it looks like you are off to a good start :awesome:

I like the chromatic aberration, but the game currently is pretty hard on the eyes in my opinion. I think it's mostly because of the white background.

In terms of shaders I think teleglitch did a mighty fine job - you should check it out if you haven't already (There is a nice segment starting at 25:32 in this video):

I changed the colour scheme to the reverse of what it was. Did it ease the eye-strain?
