Xydonia / ザイドニア is on Kickstarter!
« on: June 18, 2016, 11:18:38 AM »
Hey guys!
As you might know, I'm working on the soundtrack of Xydonia, an arcade 2D shoot'em up.
We've been setting everything up in the past months, and now we can finally announce the launch date of our Kickstarter campaign, which is going to be June 27th!
It's not an easy task for a small team like us, but we're doing everything in our power to bring you a kick-ass game, with some surprises that we still have to uncover!
So feel free to share the news and help us spread the word!



To reach as many people as possible, we've also set up a Thunderclap page.
You just have to follow this link and choose how you want to support the game (Facebook/Twitter/tumblr, or all of them!), then, when the Kickstarter launches, you'll automatically share our campaign through your social feed. Simple as that.

Thunderclap needs at least 100 people to actually launch, so spread the word! We can do it!

Thanks for your support!

UPDATE: We're now live on Kickstarter!

As I said there are several surprises, especially regarding the soundtrack! Take a look for yourselves and see who we got on board as guest composers :)
Please consider supporting us if you like what you see (and hear)!

That is some kick ass art ;) ;) ;)

Good luck with this project, you need way more attention!
To understand FM, I think of each OP as an OSC that can also be a LFO.

One of the codecs channel number was 140.95. If I'm not mistaken, that's Campbel's number from Metal Gear Solid.

The CRT monitor effect is very convincing, too! It REALLY helps the experience as playing without it is very jarring (too much visual information). It even played perfectly on my terrible, terrible laptop computer! Also, this game was awesome and the music was equally as awesome. I want this game.

My friend and I will do a let's play of the demo when we can to help promote it.

Thanks for the feedback, glad you liked the demo!

You guessed that codec frequency right, by the way. The pixel artist is quite a fan of MGS :)

We'd be pleased to see a gameplay video from you.

So, we have a very special update:

We obviously were already thrilled about having the opportunity to work on XYDONIA's soundtrack with Shinji Hosoe (aka MEGATEN), and now we're even more excited, as he sent us a message for all our fans!


We're not far from hitting our goal on Kickstarter (about 4k to go, with 11 days left), so please keep supporting us!


By the way, we asked Mr. Hosoe if he could use DefleMask to compose his track in case of success: He said he'll try :D
