About the game

Grayscale palette, straigh gameplay, FM sounds and 3D glasses will take you back to the anachronistic Arcade rooms of the 50's, where fun was the only thing. Risky pilots are rewarded in Verminest: kill leaders first and kill bugs in a short range to get medals and bonuses. 100% old-school!

Key features


Early arcades like Galaga, Phoenix or Centipede and vintage Sci-Fi movies like Them!, The Deadly Mantis, Black Scorpion, Tarantula and how not, Godzilla.



I always wanted to make a fixed shooter. In October 2011 I was playing with an original Galaga cabinet and finally I decided to go for it, adding some ideas I had in mind. The game trailer was shot with a miniature set at home, check out the making of, it's pretty crazy. In 2016 I refined this formula to create Death Came from Verminest.
