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.
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. 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 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!
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.
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.
Once you’ve ordered, i’ll send you a confirmation email full of links to games etc. as soon as I can. I’ll also send out update emails with the odd bit of bonus stuff included every so often!
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
