As part of the last week of the Humans Must Answer Kickstarter campaign, our friends over at Curious Panda Games and StudioEvil have offered their shmups to be part of a Shmup Bundle – a triforce of space shooting available for just £7. We’re quite overwhelmed by their support and hope that you’ll help us spread the good word of the shmup! Everyone who pledges £7 or more to the Humans Must Answer will receive all three games in digital form, as well as another other rewards that come with the higher tier (if they’ve gone with one) they’ve selected.
It all started off when Marco Di Timoteo of StudioEvil contacted us saying he was fed up of seeing decent shmups suffering, and wanted to help us reach our Kickstarter goal for Humans Must Answer. So we reached out to Curious Panda too, and they agreed with the sentiment and decided to put their newly released rhythm/shmup Rhythm Destruction alongside Syder Arcade and our own Humans Must Answer together in one bundle of shmup love. Our message is as follows:
“Platformers are as old and “classic” as shoot’em ups, and they always get all the cake! We think shmups are terribly under appreciated by the *general* gaming community and so we’re banding together in hopes of winning over a slice!
Syder Arcade is a free scrolling multi directional shoot ’em up. A love letter to ’90 games for the Amiga and PC. An uncompromised old-school experience, a furious, challenging action game that will bring you back in time, when games were all about skill and perseverance… and also madly swearing at your computer.
Rhythm Destruction blends classic space shooters with addictive rhythm gameplay. Inspired by the likes of Ikaruga & Gradius and infused with the intensity of addictive rhythm gameplay, it is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. Blast your way through 10 thrilling and challenging stages, fueled by the sounds of upbeat electronic music. Build your combo and score while tapping along to the music, shooting down all enemies in your path.
Humans Must Answer is an explosive horizontal shmup. You play as the pilot on board a Scout ship called The Golden Eagle, which is manned by a crew of intelligent and dangerous chickens. After discovering the Solar System in which we humans reside, they attempt to establish contact but are surprised when the only answer is hostile!
HUMANS MUST ANSWER: LIMITED EDITION
On top of that, Humans Must Answer also has a Limited Edition box version available at £35 (plus shipping fees outside of UK) for just 50 hardcore shmup fans to purchase and treasure forever! This comes with an exclusive artwork upon the sleeve, a quality printed disc and the OST will be providing on the game’s disc as well. All the other rewards will be received digitally.
