Just a quick note to let you know that I've started posting the pages from the manual so that you can learn the game details even before it hits the shelves. Every day I'll post a new page on the Facebook, Twitter, Patreon, and itch.io pages of RETREAM - if you're curious, just head over there (they're all publicly accessible, even without account)

Here's a massive gameplay video that will let you see what you have read in the manual - and it shouldn't be too long until you can also experience it ;)

Don't think the game is crazy: you haven't played it yet to fully appreciate its madness ;)

Thank you! I really need this to succeed also business-wise as it's more than 2.5 years I'm unemployed...

Glad to hear you're going to get a copy However, the copies will be available from RGCD, so just make sure to order it as soon as the game appears in their shop (a proper announcement will be made here and on the Facebook page and Twitter channel of RETREAM).

Yesterday RGCD received the CDs, so now all that's missing to complete the deluxe package is the floppies - and that's already being taken care of ;)

@newlight

After seen the video I reckon is probably one of the best CD32 games ever.

I have my CD32 waiting for it and is cool

Exciting times again on Amiga Land!!!

Cheers

The physical editions (base and deluxe - check out the previous posts regarding the details) will be sold by RGCD; the digital edition will be available from my (RETREAM's) page on itch.io. Release date and prices TBA (it shouldn't take long, though).

144 colors, 124 of which change dynamically according to the context.

It looks like you added a post while I was answering the other two...

Now, let's not exaggerate
But for sure it's one of the most original ever (and not just for the Amiga)

From your signature I see you have other AGA machines, too: they'll be able to play the game just the same (it will look and feel 100% identical).

Take care as I am awaiting for this then I hope...Will you make more games for Amiga AGA or CD32? And OCS/ECS?

Thank you and good luck

Ah!! And believe me that this can be one of the best and more underrated games for Amiga AGA systems and CD32!!!

Thank you so much it's been a pleasure.

Bye
P.D: I have great expectations and I believe this game will be sure a heart winner for Amiga

I guess if you like Xenon 2, Super Stardust, Banshee, Resogun and T-Zero type games then this will be right up your street.

I'm making something new for AGA already - check out the Dot-matrix engine for AGA.
No, I won't make OCS/ECS stuff.

You're welcome, and thanks a lot for your enthusiasm!

I sure hope it won't be underrated, but rather that what you say below will happen, instead

Actually SkillGrid is totally different from the (great) games you mentioned, so it's isn't a given that who likes shooter will like SkillGrid, or that who doesn't like shooters won't like SkillGrid.
BTW, what's Resogun?
