This project mix two things I love: vintage sci-fi movies and early shmups, all in anaglyph 3D!

Verminest (2012). A ferocious insect army from planet Verminest is spreading through the space. Defend your planet and fight back them until you finally reach the nest of Queen Verminia.

The game. Straight gameplay, grayscale palette, FM sounds and 3D glasses will take you back to the never-existent Arcade rooms of the 50's, where fun was the only thing. Risky pilots are rewarded: kill leaders to scare bugs and kill bugs in a short range to get medals and bonuses. 100% oldschool!

Influences. Early arcades like Galaga, Phoenix or Centipede and vintage Sci-Fi movies like Them!, The Deadly Mantis, Black Scorpion, Tarantula and of course Godzilla.

Stories. I've always wanted to make a game like my loved Galaga. In October 2011 I played again the original Galaga coin-op game and decided to go for it, adding some ideas I had in mind.
