@clairobskur & sinful:
I'm truly sorry for the problems and the delay in the update. The new version will be available tomorrow and will have the following changes:
- Improved music algorithm, which is lighter and uses the Xbox's default mp3 player, which is less likely to present problems
- Minor soundtrack edits
- Custom control settings for the Xbox version
- Fixed gamepad control settings for the PC version
- Autofire mode option (triggers or assigned buttons turn weapons on/off, so no need to hold down when this option is chosen.)

Thanks for your support and I apologize again for the problems.

Update:
THE UPDATE HAS BEEN RELEASED FOR THE XBOX AND DIRECT PURCHASE STORE. Still awaiting Desura update.

OK, cool. But I'm guessing the update still hasn't gone up yet. Even deleted game and downloaded it again. And no option for different button layout or fixed sound issue.

Oh, one thing might of been different? I don't recall the left and right back borders of vert shooter being only on the left for this game, was it always only on the left with the gameplay screen all the way to the right touching the right side of the screen with no black border in between?

K, the update is out and I had the chance to try it out yesturday night. Sound issues completely fixed. And he really went all out in making the buttons fully customizable + added a autofire feature where you can just tap it on or off without needing to hold it.

Well, now that these two major issues are out of the way, I could actually play the game now. Only made it to stage 3, though. That teleport move is something I need to get used to since it's a completely new thing to me in shmups. Really does make this game very different. I also noticed quite a few really unique & creative ideas in this game. The high quality of the game really took me by surprise.


Oh and tanks! For some reason I really love tanks, and was very happy to see them in stage 2. So of course the boss really pleased me too. :D

Picked up the game for Christmas and finally got around to playing it last night. It's amazing fun. The teleportation feels like such a fresh way to dodge, almost makes it feel like a "dodge" move in a 3d character action game. I also love some of the upgrades, Power Warp is just so satisfying to damage enemies by warping past them or out of the way at the last moment.

Necroing.

Discovered this one last night. Wow. Professional package and made by one guy
for $5? What a steal.

Controls well, great tunes, and fun. Feels a bit like a G Rev title, which coming from me
(Under Defeat is my #1) is a compliment.

Great job!

Hoping that he'd add a new insane difficulty. That's the only thing lacking in the game right now, it's rather easy

this looks like a great game, cool mechanics, variety of weapons and enemy patterns. I use arcade sticks pretty much exclusively, will I enjoy the game with a stick?

I think you may provided you are comfortable with the controls.

- The face buttons on the pad warp you up/down/left/right

- The fire buttons are mapped individually to the triggers as left and right fire

It works really well on a pad. I'm not sure how it will translate though.

I like the look of this game, but I gave it a try and it feels like you're moving on an ice rink. I really couldn't get past that.

-edit- ohhhh I just realised how the movement works. Pretty interesting that you keep going in one direction till you press another. So pressing down stops you. Could take some getting used to this, but I quite like it.

Errrm, what are you talking about? The controls are standard shmup movement + the teleport mechanic on my end. No "keep going till you press another direction" or inertia here.

I'm still using the pc version from Desura. You might want to try a different controller then, sounds like you got a glitch on your set.

I'm on the xbox version, my controller is fine!

-edit- ok apparently my controller isn't fine. I switched and the game works as intended, which is weird as I tested the other controller on different games and it was fine.

Game is way more enjoyable like this!

I really don't know what's going on with this game. Again today it's doing the constant movement in one direction thing, but this time with the controller which worked fine yesterday! It seems to only happen with the primary controller which is logged in, so if I turn on a secondary controller it works fine on that side, but not the main logged in one. It's a very strange and slightly annoying bug.

Has anyone else got this on XBLIG? If so could you test to see if you get the same bug.

I just played through the 1st stage - no issues with the controls on my end.

I once had a controller issue similar to the skating you're describing when I was playing Ikaruga. The left analog stick stuck a little and would cause my ship to move on its own. It was maddening.

Could it be the analog stick?

nah, i was using the d pad and the problem happened with one controller one day, so i switched it and it worked fine. the following day i had the same problem with the controller which had been working fine but then no issues with the one which was bugging out a day previous. so yeah, it effected whichever controller i had logged in as the primary one.

This is coming out on Steam soon and I've been playing the fuck out of it going for the clear on extreme.

If you haven't played it yet I am disappoint.

http://store.steampowered.com/app/493670/ Finally out on steam. I bought it previously on gmg and received a mail with a -75% code.

Yup! Thanks for letting the people here know, I was just about to make that announcement myself. Re-released it as Valkyrius Prime with a whole bunch of updates. Store links and change log are on the front page. Anyone who didn't buy the first version of the game can still take advantage of the 10% launch discount while it lasts.

Oh and apologies for how long it took to go from greenlight approval to Steam release. I was (and still am) working full time and going to grad school when it got greenlit, so naturally time was a challenge. That being said, I'm glad I got to address all those little things in the previous version, I'm very happy with the way the game stands now.

As always, I take all feedback into consideration when considering possible updates.

I wish I could! I'm not good enough at shmups though. :D

So folks, an important question before I invest in this one: How does the game play with a keyboard? Sounds to me like the warping mechanic could be a PITA.

Well I haven't played it on a kb, but you would be using 10 buttons:

Four for moving (up, down, left, and right:D), four for warping (same as moving), and two for shooting (left and right).

You don't use the shot buttons often though. They work like a light switch, they're either on or off. Once they're on you don't need to hold them down. Probably work pretty well actually if you mapped on shot button near each set of controls.

Thanks, sounds like I can easily get away with a twin-stick-like layout. I'll give it a try tonight.

Dang I missed this. I was hoping for a new increased difficulty setting to be one of the new things for the "Prime" version and damn, it not having it was a heart(&deal)breaker for me :(

Ah fuck, looks like someone beat me to the punch when it comes to warp-dodging around in a SHMUP, will give this a try eventually.

Aw frig! And here I was still playing the Desura version and only just found out about this.

Can I buy this game on Steam and copy it to disk, or do I need the steam client to play it?
