    Z-Exemplar is a 8-bit style, side-scrolling shooter that pays homage to many classic titles from the past and adds a few unique features of its own.



    I'm still deep in development but if you'd like to keep up to date on Z-Exemplar's progress then please follow me on twitter @SuminellStudios
    Thank you for your time.

    Looks great, and judging by the level select screen, it isn't lacking in content either! Eagerly awaiting this one.

    Any info on pricing? Thanks.

    Yes, R-Type a definite influence on Z-Exemplar, along with Nemesis, Gradius, Salamander and other scrolling shooters of that ilk.




    No pricing info yet but we'll let you know as soon as we do.


    Thanks for your interest.

    Don't understand more about the gameplay. Can you share a video about the gameplay?

    The gameplay involves piloting your ship through various right-to-left scrolling landscapes, avoiding deadly enemy attacks and using a wide range of weapons to kill your foes. I'll post a video as soon as I can.

    In the meantime, why not follow us on twitter, @suminellstudios, to keep up to date with Z-Exemplar's work in progress.

    Thanks for your interest.

    Z-Exemplar progress update.

    Hi all,

    Just a quick progress update on Z-Exemplar...

    [​IMG]

    Flesh out the flesh planets with enemy types - brain guns, patrollers swarmers...

    [​IMG]

    ... the flesh planets are probably most advanced right now.

    [​IMG]

    ... starting work on the asteroid fields also.

    [​IMG]

    ... and the hive planets are slowly coming together.

    More coming soon.

    Thanks for reading,

    Suminell.

    Ha! Yes, a Kempston would be great - but was more of a Konix Speedking man myself!

    Thanks all!

    Definitely something we'd like to cater for, if not in the initial release then in future updates.

    Cheers,

    Quick update

    Been working on the galaxy map recently - adding names to the various planets. It's been fun adding references to old spectrum games and their programmers!

    Update 13/6/2015

    Been working on the flesh and hive planets, filling them out with new enemy and hazard types.

    [​IMG]

    Calling these things fleshrooms, they're tough with one weak point that is only revealed for a short time. Eliminate them fast or endure a shower of spores!

    [​IMG]

    These are beetle barriers. I'll probably make them a lot tougher to destroy so it's more of an avoid or die type of hazard.

    [​IMG]

    Claws. Best avoided.

    [​IMG]

    The hanging things are chrysalises - if you take them out quick you can avoid the swarm of enemies that they contain.

    Don't forget to follow us on twitter @SuminellStudios to get regular updates on Z-Exemplar's progress.

    Also, I keep a devblog here in which I share some of the struggles and (hopefully) triumphs involved in making the game.

    Thanks for stopping by,

    Ed.
