Super Galaxy Squadron is a fast-paced vertical shooter designed for human beings as well as shmup veterans. Featuring a challenging but merciful difficulty curve, a forgiving health system, and the revolutionary ability to continue where you left off if you don’t beat it in one sitting, SGS takes the tried-and-true shmup formula of “shoot everything and don’t die” and infuses it with the genes of a modern indie action game. But most importantly, all proceeds from SGS will go to Child's Play Charity.

  • Choose between 14 unstoppable badasses with unique weapons and attributes
  • Upgrade your ship in various ways to to become even less stoppable
  • Fight through 6 stages of traditional shmup action with 7 bosses…
  • …And/or one infinite stage with increasing intensity

Also featuring an epic, high-energy rock/chip/accordion? soundtrack by video game rock band Random Encounter

Demo updated [9/27]

Looks tasty! Nice graphics and gameplay. Only thing missing is a decent chiptune soundtrack. ^^
Are you planning to release a demo soon?

Yeah, I've been needing to fix that for a while, I guess it's probably time to actually get around it.
