Back in 2000, when I had my dreamcast(alive :'(), I visited one of my friends to spare some time playing games as usual. he told me about this awesome ship game with that japanese name. At that time, I already was a big fan of Shoot 'em Ups, or SHMUPs. When the game started, I couldn't but fall in love at first sight.

Several years later, while abusing of deviantART's search function, I found this wonderful piece, and suddently I had a vision: a 2D version of that wonderful ship called IKARUGA.

Alla por el 2000 cuando tenia mi Dreamcast(aun viva :'<;) visite a uno de mis amigos para pasar un rato jugando algunas cosas como era usual. me habia hablando acerca de ese increible juego de naves coin nombre japones. Para ese entonces, yo ya era fan de los Shoot 'em Up, o SHMUP's. Cuando el juego habia comenzado, no pude sino enamorarme a primera vista.

Años mas tarde, mientras abusaba de la ahora gratuita funcion de buscar de DeviantART, me topé con esta increible trabajo, y subitamente tuve una vision: una version en 2D de esa maravillosa nave llamada IKARUGA.

That's actually true, why hasn't anyone made a 16-bit Ikaruga... I'd buy that!

This would be perfect for a flash game. Maybe a flash version of Ikaruga. I'd play it. : D
Metaru's avatar
that's why it is published as an openGL graphic, in order to encourage someone to use it freely.
CaptainPurple's avatar
I'll keep that in mind then. :3

Very nice, maybe would look better with outlines. (altho im sure that isnt a part of the style you were going for.)
Metaru's avatar
the ships appear to look better when placed over a black brackground.

I still have mine. I dunno if it works though...I have Sonic adventure one and two, evolution worlds...and a whole bunch of other stuff. Crazy Taxi ROX.

Yeah...I enjoyed them days too...

where is the black background gone?
Metaru's avatar
I found it was unrelevant, and therefore it ate a lot of details, not to mention I didn't like it. however, I could add a link to it in the description if you think it's necesary.
lollige's avatar
yup it is.. no just kidding.. if you dont think its important.. leave it like this.. I think it is.. but its your choise :)

no es que estuviera muy hyperactivo. en realidad, estuve actualizando la cuenta en deviantART. el link en mi firma se puede decir que tiene casi todo lo que voy haciendo. casi, por que hay algunas cosas que he preferido dejar en deviantart en pos de no subir viejos trabajos. pero por lo general, lo subo alla primero y luego aqui.
