Super Galaxy Squadron is a pseudo-retro shmup with modern influences. All proceeds from the final game will go to Child's Play Charity (http://www.childsplaycharity.org/).

An alpha demo is now available, and any feedback is helpful and appreciated

SGS Alpha Demo 0.4.5

Super Galaxy Squadron is a shoot-'em-up that believes tradition shouldn't get in the way of fun. While the classic arcadey difficulty that the genre is known for has its advantages, many people are turned off by mechanics that seem, for lack of a kinder word, archaic.

Difficulty has an important place in the modern gaming world, as any fan of Dark Souls or indie roguelikes can attest, but in this age a game needs more than strict memorization to make it fun and enduring. That's why SGS mixes the old-school formula with more forgiving and unpredictable (but not unfair) elements, making it accessible to average players and giving them a reason to keep playing, even if they couldn't care less about high scores. Of course, anyone looking for a challenge will also be satisfied.


  • 14 playable ships with distinct stats and weapons
  • A powerful, infinitely rechargeable special weapon for each ship
  • A forgiving health system
  • A wide range of ship-specific upgrades
  • Vibrant pixel art at 60 FPS
  • Several arcade-style levels with unique bosses
  • An endless mode with escalating difficulty
  • Bullets
  • A one-hit-kill hardcore option
  • Space
  • NES inspired visuals and sound
  • Primal, exhilarating satisfaction
  • Thrilling, breathtaking, heart-pounding, adrenaline-pumping intense space action with bullets in space
  • Dramatic summarization

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.
