While building a level to my “Shmup Boss” idea I ended up having lots of fun with the insects and decided to abandon the Shmup idea; that would have no direction. Instead, now I’m focusing on a single mechanic, which will be way better to produce – and acceptable to my limited time frame.
For now it is an Insect/Bug’s Life mix of Stealth and Collaboration game (w/ unlockable characters and mechanics according to your progress).
