NEXT JUMP is a turn-based, tactics Shoot 'em up for people who are bad at SHMUPs, but love them. Do space-jumps and chase the vicious Dragons who stole all the stock of Beverage from the Galaxy and now are running away!
It started in a game jam, StencylJAM 15.
I wanted to make a shmup that anyone could play, I love the genre but I suck at it. At the time I was playing "Jeanne d'Arc" and I thought it was a good idea to mix the two genres: Shmups and Tactics.
Jam finished and I was third place. Not only that but many people loved the game, I had a very positive feedback.
Hence, I decided to review the whole design and make a game more robust and complete, only now for PC.
- It's a Tactics SHMUP!
- A excellent Coffee break game.
- Be a pilot of the Bastards Federation: A group formed by the Elves, Humans, Dwarves and Orcs who used to live in peace, sharing their love for all Beverages.
- Your mission: JUMP! Chase the Dragons and stop them from running away with all that is most sacred to the Bastards by jumping from sector to sector, facing hordes of enemies in turn based battles!
- Each Sector is a Board! Each given “jump” represents a new combat board generated procedurally, simulating combat situations only seen in Shmups!
- Pick from four playable Ships, all inspired by classic weapons: The Ballista, Dagger, Hammer and Staff.
- Equip and Upgrade your ship with different weapons and accessories that change the combat dynamics!
- Not only inspired by the classic Shmups and Bullet Hells, it’s also influenced by tactical games like Final Fantasy Tactics, Jeanne d’Arc and Roguelikes like FTL and Crypt of the NecroDancer.
- Like the classic games of the past, it has a complete MANUAL, accessible within the game!
