I really love the light :D

- Omg. Your art is amazing. -

Neela (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 2/22/2014 02:26

Very pretty! :-)

@zombi2 - It's totally a throwback to the game's major inspiration - Phantis - a ZX Spectrum game by Carlos Abrir.

zombi2 (Level 1 Intern) @ 1/21/2014 06:25

what's with that speccy intro?

very very beautiful!

Why can't you? Some basic animation moving like 30 pixels left than back right to show parallax would do the job I think.

The background is beautiful. It takes a while to notice the repeatition of the close to us layer. Voted on Steam. I'm curious what's the idea behind the naturalism of the main character. That belly :D

reis (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 1/15/2014 08:39

Fantastic. Perfect colors!

jamon (Level 10 Operative) @ 1/15/2014 06:56

Great! remind me on old game "Game Over 2" by Dynamics ;)

wish you all the best with the game?

And - how you made it some midlleware or plain code?

DarkfalzX (Level 7 Assassin) @ 1/15/2014 06:42

Thank you very much for all the kind words, and to the people who actually bought the game/voted for it on Steam: )

Ulti took about 3.5 months to make in parallel with Legend of Iya, but I am trying to keep my distractions to a minimum now.

The song from the trailer is actually in the game - a much longer cut of it is in the credits roll (I am thanking all the LOI Kickstarter supporters in it, so those are LOONG credits: )

You can also get the soundtrack off Virt's bandcamp: http://virt.bandcamp.com/album/ultionus-a-soundtrack-of-petty-revenge

Zizka (Level 10 Deep Blue) @ 1/15/2014 04:48

Owch, that's nice. Good luck on your game.

elend (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 1/15/2014 04:31

Oh and yes, of course I'd also like to see Legend Of Iya on the Ouya... Just so you know.. :p

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 1/15/2014 04:15

The soundtrack - man...that is beautiful.

Is the soundtrack also on the game itself at some point? 

I really like the look of this game as it has a megadrive feel to it. But what I really like about the platforming levels is the slower pace. It's almost like Ghost n Goblins in which you cant just run through the whole game blasting.  I much prefer this type of slow pace.

This came out before Legend of Iya. How long did Ultionus take to make?

Marina (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 1/15/2014 03:29

Wonderful colors, I love the scene. I also watch the trailer of this game, and it looks very nice. 

EDIT (I missunderstood something about the release):

Maybe I will purchase it later, next month. Anyway, I will vote your game on steam as well.

Keep up the good work.

elend (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 1/15/2014 01:09

Bought the Ouya version and enjoed it very much. Some great pixel art going on there. Really love the colorful 90s style graphics. Well animated, too.

NoeL (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 1/14/2014 22:53

Looks great, and that game trailer looks even greater (yay boobs). Think I might have to buy this.

DarkfalzX (Level 7 Assassin) @ 1/14/2014 22:43

Whoops - didn't notice that - it was a slightly old version. Replaced with a proper one.

In the game this background is actually in 3 parallax layers - it annoys me that I can't show off the datail of all three at once: )

Hiuru (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 1/14/2014 22:07

That thick line on the top of the piece isnt doing it for me, kind of distracting actually  

Other than that it's beautiful!
