Heaven Variant is a Modern Take on Classic Sidescrolling Shooters - This 8-Bit Life
The indie devs of Zanrai Interactive are working on something pretty special in this not-so-humble bloggers opinion. They’re creating a modern take on the classic 80’s shoot-em up (shmup) and look to be doing a pretty badass job when you consider that they’re a team of only 3. The visual style of Heaven Variant is a lush and bright pallete that pops out at you. They do a really good job of evoking the art style of 80’s/90’s shmups. Judging by the videobelow the music in the game will be equally as impressive. Listening to the track playing in the background made me miss the haydays of arcades.
I’m really excited for this game and you can be certain that I’ll be following the development closely. I’ll be contacting the dev team soon in hopes of getting a Q&A session setup. Until then enjoy the model renders and video below.
