You guys see "Skycurser" SHMUP for Arcade release?
« on: March 10, 2017, 12:03:14 pm »
Apparently, this is an arcade only release.  However, they are taking pre-orders on JAMMA kits if you wanted to purchase it.  Game looks good.  My buddy Joe Szabo is creating the artwork for the cabs.

I seent it.

Only thing I don't like is the 6 buttons and it's horizontal...


But I wouldn't mind dropping a few quarters in that machine.

I played it in Chicago in December.  It is a lot of fun.

I'm pretty sure it is only 3 buttons.  Some of their early demo machines had a full Street Fighter CP making it look like 6 buttons.

Every game looks good in an HS5 Dynamo cab.

The rumor is there might be one at zapcon, Del. I seem to remember hearing something like that. But don't take that as gospel.

Oh, and I posted about this game like a year or two ago. I kind of like the previous art. Joe does great work, but I think that's really busy.

I'll confirm with the developers.  That would be SWEET to cover at the show.

I touched base with the organizers. It's SUPPOSED to be there. So yes, should be fun.

I played this game at the Louisville Arcade Expo. They had it in the dynamo and then they had a little Sega Dinosaur King converted to play it and it was the raddest little thing.

Artistically it's a great game. I love the style of it all.

It's just an okay shmup though.

Judging by how they are doing this I get the feeling they expect a PREMIUM for it.  I'd drop 20 bucks on a exe and maybe a hundred or so for a PCB but I get this feeling their price point is closer to 600

They got back to me. Just confirmed their cheapest kit is $650 (candy cab kit).

Yeah, so after they only sell 20 of them, they'll give in and sell it as a PC game for $5....

Shmuping is a rich man's game.

Part of the reason my cab stands incomplete.

But yeah if you're going to go to all this trouble to homebrew a Shmup then you gotta spend time on the mechanics otherwise it's just a very very well polished turd.

disappointing to hear about that pricing model. Failure at best im afraid. They are literally limiting their audience and revenue stream. I love shmups as it is probably one of my favorite genre of arcade games, but not $650 love for one(granted its a full kit) hehe.

First thing I did was check to see if it was at Barcade in Philly.  If it was, then I'd make the trip there and spend $20 on beers.  I'm probably not the only one.

Yeah, they pretty much limited their audience to barcades with that pricing model. I am not going to drop $1000 for a kit of a game that literally no one will ever recognize. Once I count the value of $300 for a perfect conversion cabinet I am at $1300. $1300 will buy 3 games that are better than this one.

I've played it a few times at two different locations and while it looks really good, to be honest, it didn't wow me.

If I understand the business model, the intention is to develop and sell the hardware as a platform with Skycurser just being the first game. The point *is* to limit it to arcades and not sell to home users.

It's a cool idea, but without a really impressive game, I don't see it happening. Then again, the game isn't complete so maybe it'll play better with a few more revisions.

Even if they sold all fucher games for under $20 once you have the hard ware, I t's still a big risk that they will be making and releasing that seconded game.
