Animation Story/Writing/Dialogue

Slick animations, but the trailer really needs a lot of work. I'm not sure if the 'beats' are music or sound. If it's music, it's not very good and kind of inconsistent.

Controls are a funny thing. We playtested it the way you suggested and the reception was negative due to the added difficult of the controls reversing.

Currently we are using a Smash TV or Hotline Miami style where the character simply goes where you press. It could change in the future depending on further playtests.

Thanks. Any tips on tutorials? Were you able to grasp the concept of the special weapons and usage of the bomber?

I just had a pretty brutal playtest. Fully half of my players were not able to grasp the concept of a 'twinstick shooter'- must of them couldn't comprehend using their right thumb to aim the ship and had a hell of a time with it.
