I’ve been working on a game for some time, it’s called “Triggered” It’s a top down space looter shooter.
It started out as my intention to build a game I wanted to play - as a result, it went through countless iterations - the creative process was drawn out and thoroughly tested my resolve; as I flip flopped from idea to idea, control scheme to control scheme, meta to meta - before finally deciding what exactly I wanted to make.
The result is an arcade inspired 2D top down space shooter, set in an infinite procedural universe. You fly around destroying enemies, finding loot, allowing you to configure your ship and skills to suit your play style.
Triggered is very much still in development, I have a lot of plans for improvements and additional content. My current focus is getting the Android version ready, and then I’ll be thinking about some meta improvements and some improved sense of progression through the introduction of more interesting and dynamic objectives - perhaps with a story element to pad it out.
I would very much welcome feedback. I want to make this game as good as it can be, and I’m at the point where that means collecting feedback and helping it inform me on what I should be focusing on next.
The game is currently publicly available on the AppStore, and in beta on the Google Play Store.
If you have an iOS device and want to try it out, PM me for a promo code. I will update this post when it’s public/beta on Google Play Store.
I will always be happy to give out promo codes here for people eager to try it out
It is possible that the business model will change in the future, I have a few ideas of how to monetise the game and allowing it to be free to play - but it’s very important to me that players are not exploited by pay-to-win mechanics - at a stretch I would allow ‘pay to save a little grind’ - but that’s probably it
