Son of Scoregasm Pre-Order (Windows/Mac/Linux)

Pre-Order Son of Scoregasm

Son of Scoregasm is my latest shooty game, it’s due out on Vita at the end of June and for PC platforms shortly thereafter. Check out the trailer

Son of Scoregasm is a sequel to Scoregasm, my award winning 2011 shooty game. Much like the original Scoregasm there’s a big emphasis on variety in the levels, with lots of tricks and traps to outwit and lots of fun enemy patterns and bosses. There’s also a greater choice of routes through the game this time round, as I’ve changed the layout of the stages to a series of interlinked nodes, rather than the three parallel rows in the original. You can read more about this here.

Pre-Order now and get free stuff!

As you may have noticed from the title of this post, you can now pre-order a copy of Son of Scoregasm for your PC, be it Windows, Mac or Linux. By pre-ordering, you’ll not only be ensuring that you get a copy of the game as soon as it’s released, you’ll also be helping me out by supporting me through the expensive part of developing a game – the making a game part.

The basic cost for a pre-order is $10, which will also be the price of the game when it’s released HOWEVER to sweeten the deal, i’ll chuck in copies of all my previous games for Windows, Mac and Linux if you pre-order INCLUDING Steam Keys for those which are on Steam. Should you feel super generous, and decide you’d like to spend more that the asking price, I can offer you a few extra perks! Here’s a list of those things:

  • Pre-order – $10 – Get Son of Scoregasm as soon as it’s released for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, plus bonus copies of all my previous games to play now! Previous games include Scoregasm, Irukandi, Bullet Candy and Bullet Candy Perfect as well as a few extras. All games are avaialble DRM free for Windows,Mac and Linux. I can give you a Steam code for Scoregasm and Bullet Candy too!
  • Test Team – $25 – All the stuff from the $10 option, plus get early access to pre-release versions of the game when they are ready as well as first dibs on names and a special test team icon in the Leaderboards!
  • Super Awesome – $50 – All the stuff from the $10 and $25 options, plus free copies of all my future PC games and your name (if you wish) in the credits of the PC versions as a Super Awesome Supporter!

I’ll also send out update emails with the odd bit of bonus stuff included periodically to all pre-orderers!

If you like the sound of this, please select an option from the box below and click the button! Please note that this is not a pre-order for the PS Vita version of the game.


Son of Scoregasm Pre-order




Once you’ve ordered, i’ll send you a confirmation email full of links to games etc. as soon as I can. In addition, I’ll be adding Son of Scoregasm to Steam Greenlight soon, so if/when it gets greenlit I’ll send Steam keys to all pre-orderers.

BONUS BONUS! Be an enemy!

As an added bonus for those of you who are interested, I’ll put your name in the prize draw hat to have an enemy named after you! This’ll mean your name will appear in the Enemy Roster in ALL versions of the game! This was a fun thing when i did it with the original Scoregasm (check out the enemies option on the main map screen there). I’ll make this available to all pre-orderers who want to take part, and I’ll video myself randomly selecting names from a hat once I’ve got enough names. Or maybe work out a way to get the cat to pick them????. There are 33 enemies in total in Son of Scoregasm, so be quick!

Anyway, if you like the look of Son of Scoregasm, please pre-order a copy! Your support now means I’ll be more able to dedicate my time fully to getting the game finished and make the best job I can of it.

If you’ve any questions, feel free to ask them in the comments. I’m usually pretty friendly ;)

Cheers

Pre-Order Son of Scoregasm

Pre-Order Son of Scoregasm

Things have been moving on at a cracking pace here at Charlie’s Games HQ (it’s a spare bedroom), and Son of Scoregasm is achingly close to being done! All the levels are in, as are trophies/achievements and all the interface stuff. I’ve got to add some scores for medal targets (if you’ve played the original Scoregasm you’ll know what these are) and a handful of other little bits then I’m good to go I think!

Here’s a video showing a few levels before I die. It’s unedited, so you should get a good feel for how the game works. I’ll get a proper trailer up soon.

That’s the kind of thing to expect, though it can’t let you know how super smooth it feels to play! Its just sooooo slick!

Much like the original Scoregasm there’s a big emphasis on variety in the levels, with lots of tricks and traps to outwit and lots of fun enemy patterns and bosses. There’s also a greater choice of routes through the game this time round, as I’ve changed the layout of the stages to a series of interlinked nodes, rather than the three parallel rows in the original. You can read more about this here.

It’s due out on PS Vita first, roughly at the end of June, then the PC version (Windows, Mac and Linux) will be out around a month or two after that if all goes to plan. All versions will be pretty similar in terms of content, but the PC version will obviously have a few extra options so you can get it running a MEGA RESOLUTION, change control schemes, optimizations for low and high end PCs and all those other PC favourites.

Pre-Order!

Son of Scoregasm Update

Son of Scoregasm Update

Hello,

I’ve not posted much about this lately (though I don’t talk a little about it on Twitter), so i figured i’d make a post about how Son of Scoregasm is going.

I’ll start with a recent video:

So, it’s nearly finished actually. I’m currently working on the last boss level, after which it’ll be spit and polish and a few interface bits and i think i’m about ready to go!

Those of you who’ve played Scoregasm will likely have noticed that it’s got a sort of multiple route thing going on, where you can, to some degree, choose a path through the game. I say to some degree because there are 3 distinct routes laid out in rows, and you can flit between them at the end of each stage. This is cool and all, but for Son of Scoregasm I thought it’d be more fun to make more of this feature, to wit the levels are now arranged in a huge pyramid, just like Ferrero Rocher. Well, except it’s a flat pyramid. Or triangle I suppose, but that’s no fun. It’s a bit like Outrun, happy?

Excelente

What has stayed from Scoregasm is the variety of level types, so there’s some straight shooty ones, some ones with obstacles/hazards to be avoided, boss levels etc. Also, those of you who are fans of both pointless contextualisation AND biscuits will be please to hear that the King of the Earth is making a return, along with his Family Circle selection box.

What has changed a bit is the scoring. This time around you’ll need to use the pulse attack to kill enemies and get them to drop little green multiplier tokens. Then you can shoot them to score points. This means that if you’re going for a big score you’ll need to work out the best ratio of pulse attacking and shooting to get your multiplier at the right levels and at the right times.

Here’s another video of a boss thingy. It’s a bit noisy at the start, soz:

Both videos are of the game running on the PS Vita BTW.

I’m really pleased with how it’s turning out, and by the time it’s released i should be about ready to explode with delight! It’ll be coming out on the rather nifty PlayStation Vita first, and following shortly after on Windows, Linux and Macs. It’s written in C this time too, so there’s a chance of a hope it may come out on some other platforms in addition to those, though i’m not sure how well the controls will translate on touchscreens??? Who knows though, right?

Want to know what it’ll be like? Try the original Scoregasm! Handily, it’s on sale at the moment for $.99 (or optionally more!), so you’ve no excuse. Sale is going on here: SCOREGASM SALE. Any cash raised just goes straight into Son of Scoregasm’s development.

Anyway, that’s enough for now. Have fun!

Cheers
Charlie
