Galencia: Khaos Sphere.

Galencia: Khaos Sphere will be the sequel to Galencia and is still a WIP by the fabulous Jason Aldred who you can follow here on Twitter‏ @JasonNapalm

Gameplay Overview

THESE NOTES ARE FROM THE IN-PROGRESS DESIGN DOCUMENT AND ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE

What we have planned is a Shmup, with 3 different core elements.

  • Vertical scrolling (detailed backgrounds)
  • Reference points: Starforce, Xevious, A.S.O, Halley’s Comet
  • Static screen (2d starfield)
  • Reference points: Galencia, Astro Blaster, Galaga 88
  • Perspective (3d starfield)
  • Reference points: Gyruss, Tempest

All 3 different elements will be inspired by the stated reference points but will not be direct clones. If you think how Galencia was inspired by Galaga, this will give you an idea of the concept. To be clear, this will be taking the essence of the reference points, adapting to the Galencia lore and presented using the C64’s strengths. There will of course be many original elements and the reference points are provided to give you a feel of what to expect.

There will be other, smaller in scope, aspects to the main elements with a  selection of mini games, these will be kept under wraps until release.
