Welcome to the Shmup (Shoot 'em up) Game Jam!
You should all know what a Shoot 'em up game is, but if not, here is an explanation. The point of this jam is to create an awesome looking (and sounding!) game that is either infinite (randomly generated enemies) or has many levels. I created this jam because I have noticed a lack of really good, artistic, well thought out 2D Shoot 'Em Up games around. Yes, 3D is nice, but 2D has a more 'retro' feel, while still being able to look sleek and sound like a professional game. Have fun, tweet to #ShmupGameJam, and make some awesome games!
