After many months in the game development oven, dual battlefield space shmup Dimension Drive is finally taking off on Kickstarter. As previously reported on IGM, Dimension Drive features a unique dual screen mechanic that fully capitalizes on the screen size of modern televisions. Players face constant challenges thanks to fast-paced combat and defense, movement-based puzzles, and a seamless teleporting ability that demands accurate timing and strategic planning. In addition to its energetic gameplay, Dimension Drive conveys a science fiction narrative that follows the journey of Jackelyne Tywood as she confronts a multidimensional, ruthless alien enemy. Jackelyne and her trusty ship The Manticore must work together in their quest to stop The Ashajuls from devouring the infinite dimensions of the universe. But Jack is never alone; with a personal guardian A.I simply known as ‘V.E.R.A’ by her side, space is no longer a place where no one can hear you scream.
Recent transformations in the art style of Dimension Drive have resulted in its current aesthetic, which is described as ‘video game meets comic’: Players will be able to experience Jackelyne’s story through in-game color motion comics, as they help forge her path to becoming a legendary space pilot. A total of 4 game modes are planned including Arcade, Modern, Pacifism, and 1 Credit Clear, each of which is bolstered by an advanced scoring system that invites players to obtain the highest score on the leaderboards.
Those interested in Dimension Drive can pledge their support on Kickstarter today and vote for the game on Steam Greenlight.
