Working on a rocket trail. Sorta of a Tron light cycle effect for short rocket attacks. You can also see several interactive balls in play here.

I have made quite a bit of progress lately adding turreting, spectating and an interactive ball. Each of these features are in the early phases of implementation but close to finished. I have included some images below illustrating turreting and and animated gif the interactive ball in action.
I will need to delay thing a couple/few more weeks. So very close, so stay tuned, things should pick up the pace of the next week or so..
One online player turreting another.
My MMO space combat project is nearing online testing. Shooting for late this month. You can follow me on the Phoenix USC Itch.io page. Overall this project is about %60 complete but, completed more then enough for online, head-to-head team-vs-team space combat to start happening. Fun time! :)
Some 2D light and shadow balancing going on here. Lightening the color palate of the floor texture brightens the scene, balances the scene light to shadow gradient, and allows me to reduce the number of lights used and increase performance. More images and info on my Itch.io project page.
I will be starting to test my server and client soon. For more info check us out on Discord or here on Itch.io.

I have made quite a lot progress with Phoenix USC. We now have an early access dedicated 24/7 server and functioning client. If you are interested in testing checkout my dev-blog. I have included some development video and images below. So awesome to get this project online and rocking the multiplayer. :)
Wide screen 5760x1080 server and 4 clients. :O
Here you can see a server on far left, then clients to the right. I've got the server sorting out each client and their names which you can see hovering above each ships. Networking dev going smoothly so far. :)
After a long absence for itch.io I've updated my project page and redesigned my website to get ready for early access to begin. It's been a lot of work, research and effort getting development to this point but the results are totally worth it.

I have developed a new web assembly (run's in web browser) game demo that is pretty cutting edge and well beyond most similar offerings available here. I would like to know what is the best way to approach itch.io if you think you have a unique and one of a kind project? Does itch.io offer a path for ground breaking projects or products?
I guess the best way to put it is if you thought you had something that was ground breaking or unique how would you get itch.io's attention and the consumers as well. I have just released my game demo through my own website and would like to offer it here on itch.io as well, mostly to reach a wider audience. This demo is free play and no charge.
If you have some advice I sure could use it. :)

My game Phoenix USC is available here:
I am currently testing my game engines GUI interface. I use a custom 'Window' based GUI so all of the windows within the game are movable, resizable and work much like any other window. This is an early test of my game engine and GUI interface using HTML and webassebly. The demo will run in your browser and will scale to fit at 1080p. Addition resolutions are supported upto 4K (3840x2160).
Checkout the future in gaming. :)
