Shmup Ship Rough 01

Here’s a loose rendering of the player’s ship for the shoot’em’up side scroller I’m working on.  I’m trying to make it feel less like the tiny single-seat fighters so prevalent in the genre and instead I see it as more of a corvette or ekranoplan.  Big and tough but still very fast.

    Yeah! The ekranoplan! Never seen so many pictures. Knew they had made a prototype. Wish we were making something similar. Ground effect has a lot of potential. So cooooool.

    Thanks for the link.

  1. One of these days I’ll work an ekranoplan into a project. I’m sure one would make a good insertion system for a team of elite powersuited commandos conducting a desperate raid against a rogue AI run amok on an island stronghold…. oVVVVo

    exhaust, or what is it, reminds me Ben’s bike from Full throttle..

    • Haha, I was trying to have a mess of thrust vectoring tabs on the engines but I’ve been struggling with the appearance in so few pixels. If they reminded you of Full Throttle I’ll take it as a huge compliment. Damn stylish game that was!
