Hi, everyone, this is Sai! I've recently attended AnimeNEXT and had a great time as an artist, as well as showcasing Shippu la Senpu, a Kill la Kill themed shmup made by Clerya Games and stron9estudios. The objective of the game is to rack up as many points shooting up COVERS and surviving the bosses of the game, Nui Harime and Ragyo Kiryuin.
Pictured below was the booth I was at! It's blurry because I was so stoked, haha.
Along with playing the game, I included some prize tiers for players! It was a lot of fun doing a mini arcade at my table.
On Friday, a lot of people really struggled with facing Nui, but eventually we reeled in some players that were seasoned in shoot-em-ups come Saturday! An awesome Touhou veteran defeated both bosses and unlocked Satsuki with an impressive 26500 score; he definitely deserved prizes for that! From there 'til Sunday was anyone's game! Having Satsuki playable opened up a whole new world for high scores. The highest score all weekend was at 40530!
Players that frequented the booth were really astounded by the scores!
It was really amazing to see people pick up the game and give it a go, Kill la Kill fans and non-fans alike. Just about everyone enjoyed playing the game, and some even came back to play! This by far is one of the more interesting tabling experiences I've had, and I really want to thank the team for making a fun game, and for you players out there who gave Shippu la Senpu a whirl as well as feedback! And if you have anymore input but weren't able to give it to me during convention, please feel free to drop us a line. <:
ALSO, for those who stopped by my table and weren't able to grab any merch I had at my table, I will have my store updated with more stock this week! You can check everything out at the Paprika Carnival online store. My art partner-in-crime shunao also has some neat stuff at her online store!
