Z-Type

I planned for a while now to participate in Mozilla's Game On contest. I didn't want to submit Biolab Disaster as my entry, but instead make something new and fresh. After all, the deadline for the contest was still months away. When I read this tweet I realized it wasn't anymore.

At this point I started to work on a game I wanted to make for a long time. I always was a fan of Crimsonland's (a 2003 arcade game) Type-o-Shooter mode and recently discovered the Dreamcast classic Typing of the Dead. So the overall direction of the game was clear.

Today I finished Z-Type. Please Enjoy!
