From Developers David Jimenez and Alejandro Santiago of 2AwesomeStudio comes Dimension Drive.

In this article:

  • We take a look at the new kickstarter for Dimension Drive
  • The heartbreaking moments that nearly ended their dream
  • And why you should possibly help back this Indie game

A brand new take on Shoot’em ups

This fast paced action shoot’em up brings a fresh look on the genre with a rich science fiction story behind it. Players will find themselves immersed in the comic book style graphics, impressive game mechanics and the ingenuity put into it.

Throughout the game you’ll see the world through the eyes of the main character “Jackelyne Tywood” (aka Jack) as you battle through space in:

A legendary ship capable of teleporting across space and dimensions.

As can be seen in the trailer below the full release of the game will support a total of 4 Game modes:

  • Arcade
  • Modern
  • Pacifism
  • 1 credit clear

Together this “dual” shoot em up style will give you a lot of enjoyment (along with alot more to think about).

A dream nearly destroyed

The news of Dimension Drives kickstarter comes after 2AwesomeStudio’s previous attempted was crushed by the actions of a troll who fraudulently pledged €7,000. Despite the heartbreaking effects on the team they still decided to persevere and start up a new campaign.

Thanks to this, players can now look forward to a vertical shoot’em up complete with teleportation (check them out and their fancy teleportation). The game also meets a variety of playing styles that vary from Shooting, Puzzle and Defence Strategy.

Interestingly Dimension drives unique selling point is ability for players to multitask with essentially two games on one screen. This means you’ll need to learn how to fly single handedly through space with two aircrafts side by side.

An Indie game made by Space Engineers

With a development team previously in the field of space engineering (yeah you read that right, space engineers!) the game has turned from a hobby into a fully functioning game. If you didn’t think that was cool enough you’ll also be treated a completely new view on the previously fading genre.

How can you help back Dimension Drive?

Combined into one epic masterpiece (that already has a demo for you to try out) this kickstarter has already superseded its goal of €30,000. However it doesn’t have to stop here.

By backing Dimension drive on Kickstarter you’ll find yourself with “backer exclusive” items whilst knowing that you’re helping them reach their stretch goals. But then again who doesn’t want this game to have a multiplayer co-op?
