Hi all, I'm a casual shmup fan from New Zealand. My earliest shmup memories are playing Uridium and Silkworm on the C64 as a kid, and my love for the genre grew when I first played Lifeforce on the NES. For whatever reason I never really played many shmups after the Megadrive/Genesis era, apart from a handful of NeoGeo games in the local arcade.

I'm for the last 6 months or so I have been (very) slowly making my own shmup as a hobby in my spare time (slightly old teaser gif: https://imgur.com/jWSm2Yc), which made me want to try all the different types of shmups that I had missed out on since the early 90s, and have since had the pleasure of playing ZeroRanger, Jamestown, Steredenn and simply trying not to die continuously in others such as Ikaruga, Raiden IV, DoDonPachi Resurrection.

Hey,

I'm finally writting here after having been forwarded by Google like a million times during the latest 5 years. I guess, this day had to come at some point.

Cheers to all!

Hi, I'm from the western U.S.
I have been into arcade games, shmups, and tech for a long time now.
I suspect this is a place for me.

Hi!

I'm César from Spain.
I am a passionate shmups player since I was very young and I like all kinds of genres, from the most classic to the danmaku.
I registered years ago for my love of the shmups, but I don´t speak English very well and for that reason I didn't write in the forum, but for me it has always been a reference and I hope it continues being so for many years :)
I'll try to participate more around here anyway.

Cheers to all!

Hi, I registered here about 3 years ago, and decided I better make my first post and start getting into conversations here.
In addition to shmups, I enjoy a variety of genres, and I am into a lot of technical stuff such as PCB's, video converters, arcade hardware, controllers, and programming.
I live in Salt Lake.

Hi Shmupers,

I'm Doggy D from Belgium.

My oldest shmup experiences (by memory) are : Space Invaders (small cabinet toy), Tiger Heli (NES) and 1942 (arcade)

My 10 biggest "Coups de foudre" are : Dodonpachi, Blazing Star, Batsugun, Twin Cobra, Thunder Force III, Battle Garegga, Mushihimesama, Parodius, Raiden Fighters 2 and Ketsui (even It hates me...)

I play on arcade, PC and original consoles (Neo Geo Aes, PC Engine, etc. to PS4).

My best performance : 1CC on Dodonpachi

My best IRL shmup souvenir : Stunfest 2019 (Rennes, France)

That's all folks ! :D
