Vanity (r11)

"What is Vanity?"

Normally it would mean how one views himself in a mostly positive way. In this case, Vanity is a game I am working on; A top-down arcade shooter with assloads of enemies, complete with awesome music by Pitfall, running on a well optimized engine.

The game itself is incomplete, but I am hoping to get feedback from you guys on the games quality, and different ideas on items or bosses.

"Wtf, how do I play this?"

-You can move using WASD, IJKL, or Arrow keys.
-You normally aim with the mouse, but you can set it up so you can fire using one of the three movement key sets.

-There isn't any specific goals ATM, and only two bosses work, but as time goes on I will get closer to having a full, working game.

"What is this shiny stuff in the options menu?"

If you hover over the options with the mouse, it should give you a basic description of what it does!

"Some of the menu buttons don't work!"

Yeah, because only some of the menu buttons have been programmed. Bosses 1,4, and 5 haven't even been made yet!

"Where can I download it?"

Here. (Don't know why you asked those questions if you didn't even download it yet.)

Enjoy what I have so far, and please tell me if you run into any issues or if you have any ideas. :)Phobos0022013-02-13 03:20:51

Now this game I really like. Just don't make it slower in future releases phobos002. Really cool fast-paced arcade-shooter.

Oh uh, I have the latest version on IndieDB: http://www.indiedb.com/games/vanity

It's probably fixed, but also some of the buttons aren't finished yet. They are in R14, but I wanna talk to Desura about publishing and stuff first.

A very important bump, because the game is now purchasable on IndieVania!

http://www.indievania.com/games/vanity

I don't know how I can promote the games existence very well. I was gonna ask NerdCubed to try it out, but I am unable to get a hold of him by any easier means.

I also want to use IndieVania to get funds for Steam Greenlight, and get reviews on what I should improve on in the game in order to make it worthy for steam.

Find video reviewers, post stuff about it on reddit(this one can generate huge traffic, and it can be done in no time), make a twitter account, fb group, stuff like that. There is a pretty good blog about promoting indie games
http://www.indiegamegirl.com/

And try the others as well(rockpapershotgun, indiegamereviewer, and so on).

Good luck, your game looks great, I love the camera shake, and the colors - it needs more gore though.:D
