Man you read my mind. That water is just dying to move right? Even if they separated the foam from the shadows and made it shift, that would still be pretty cool.

The game looks fantastic, but I just hope they can nail things like sound fx, enemy pacing, and bullet patterns with the same level of professionalism.

There is a video. The water is animated but in a strange way. I don't know about their choice there. I think they should have done an alpha channel where the white foam stays stationary and in the blue regions there is an animated double pattern. I almost want to simulate this in flash and send it to them.

The art direction in Ghost Blade really is incredible though.

Looks really promising, unfortunately I much prefer horizontal shooters ala thunder force since I'm not a hardcore shooter fan.

I am more of a Horizontal fan myself, and Thunderforce is still hardcore Smile

At least Ghost Blade is just vertical, and isn't necessarily bullet hell. Reminds me of Trizeal / later Raiden games a bit.

Erm... well, for my sake I wouldn't order Sturmwind. I don't want to drag that discussion into the Ghost Blade thread, so feel free to ask me about the game in the Sturmwind thread, and I will chat it up Wink

I am excited to see Ghost Blade's caravan mode in the next video they put out.

Its hard to talk about Ghost Blade without bringing up the developers past efforts on the Dreamcast.

The people involved have had a spotty track record with the community in terms of their releases in the form of bugs and quality regressions. Some games have been decent releases, where-as others have been a step back.

NGDEVTeam/HUcast are certinainly consistant and have one of the largest resume's for indie-commercial DC developers out there. Though, it always seems like there is some glaring problem that spoils the experience for their games. Like the score bug in DUX, the blurry graphics in REDUX, the hard to see bullets in Last Hope (First Printing), game breaking bugs in early MVS versions of Gunlord which required patches. They just need to listen to the community more and polish up their products. Its a QA and PR issue.

While I am a big fan of Ghost Blade's art style, I am waiting to see how the game turns out and how it is recieved by the shmups community first. If its good overall, and doesn't have any nagging technical issues, I will be buying a copy. I really want this game to turn out good.

What the hell happened with this??? I have my copy and I of course saw the blurry graphics and was immediately furious! Has there been a statement / reason for this?
