Hello, Popfan here!
I am excited to announce that, besides chain of lucidity, I’ve been working on another project in secret. Said project is a remake of a game that never saw the light of day:
Len’en Kai Mugenri ~ Re: Emergency everyday
(Voluble Connection of the Dawning Unreal Village)
As a teaser for what’s to come, here’s some gameplay footage of Stage 3, replicated as accurately as possible from that old 2010 video, but also with some unique tweaks to make the game more challenging and interesting.
One such change is the implementation of a Flash Bomb mechanic, which is a mandatory element in Len’en games today. Serintsu’s Flash Bomb, 「空間歪」 (Spatial Distortion), may look similar to Yabusame’s “Maiden Pit”, but instead of destroying bullets, it moves them from one side of the circle to the opposite one.
Regrettably, there were a few sound effects I was not able to recreate, so I had to use Len’en sound effects as placeholders for the time being. I’ll have them replaced by the time the game is ready for release, though, as I’m not fond of the idea of using someone else’s assets, at least not without transforming them first.
Speaking of release, I don’t have a set release date yet, but by my estimates, it won’t be any sooner than 2019. I can’t let this project take away too much time from working on chain of lucidity, after all, but look forward to another update video towards the end of the year.
