Trailer

ZeroRanger is a vertically scrolling 2D shoot'em up that's about to release on Steam and itch.io this Friday, September 28th.

In terms of gameplay ZeroRanger is rather traditional. You shoot down countless enemies, dodge dozens of bullets and collect new weapons as you make your way through four stages full of relentless action.

If you've ever dabbled into the Development section of these forums, you might have heard of this project while it was a freeware project called FINALBOSS. Me and fellow dev eebrozgi are excited to finally put a proverbial bow on this project (at least for now)... We hope you enjoy it!

We're also holding a score attack event on Twitter for the demo version of the game, with a chance of winning a free Steam key for the full game. The event lasts until the day of release.
You can download the most recent demo version here.

'Decided to make your game searchable huh? Good choice to change the name.
I've been excited for this thing for a long time.

did you leave behind any accommodation options to alter the soundtrack? :wink:

It's something I've thought of for a long time, so it's very likely down the line. At the moment, though, I really can't guess when...

Wow, I had no idea the release date was so close. It's as if my mind was stuck in August lol.
Anyway, congrats on the release! (and good luck :mrgreen: ) It has been a pretty long journey, hasn't it?
Raw Label is quite nice so I have no doubts this full version will be well-crafted too.

Hey! Only a few hours left - haven't been this excited for a new shooter in ages. I don't have a Reddit account but does anyone want to put it up in their shooter forum?

Ah, finally, congratulations! Gotta play it this weekend.

BTW. I never said it before, but that new demo in itself should be made a case study on effective presentation in every game design class. Quite literally, and in fact, I'm forwarding this to professor buddies of mine just now.

Love it so far! Only problem, when playing with a controller, I can't rebind the controls. Is anyone else having this problem?

I never actually played the demos because when I saw footage for the first time during development I was immediately into it and wanted to wait until the final release.

This game is phenomenal so far. I'll probably end up going back and trying the demos at some point just to look at the changes over time.

Played a bit of the first two stages. This is really wonderful! I've always been interested in the fan-game/freeware, but this has been polished into something remarkable.

Hey ebbo, congrats on the release!!

Does the Steam version have DRM? If so I'll go with itch.io (thanks for providing at least one DRM-free option).

I keep dying around the early stages because bullets are fast and enemies are everywhere, but the game is fair enough with the tools given and enemy telegraphing
Presentation and pacing is nice and frantic, I never get bored, it's got the cinematic flair of RefleX but without all the downtime
Zeroranger has more effort put in its second loop than any other shmup I can think of

VERY GOOD GAME

This game is absolutely fantastic and is a must buy for everyone, seriously.

There's a few things that needs to be done to be perfect (button remap for joypads, better looking scanlines, ingame resolution switch), but that souldn't stop you to play what i think is by far the best shmup of this year.

Quick tip for everyone : i play in 1080P TATE mode, and i got terrible screen tearing. I managed to fix that by switching Windows resolution to 1080*1920, then everything was smooth ingame.

Play it, this is dope.

I've been playing this game a ton and loving it! Top notch work for sure! Would you or anyone of the Dev team be interested in coming on my podcast to talk about the development of the game?

There's a link to my podcast in my signature if you want to check it out.

Great, I'm glad I'm not the first random guy to ask this here. Seriously, is a console release possible ?

This site is bad for my pocket. That's 2 new games in two weeks! First impressions are good. It feels tight and I love the music. Playing on Steam on a large tv screen at 1080. Looks and plays great.

is it only the side shot that cancels certain bullets?

This game is absolutely beautiful! Shmup as shmup should be.

ZeroRanger is some serious girlfriend material, 10/10.

I still haven't been able to get more than 20 minutes here and there with ZR. Looking forward to getting a few hours in someone this week.

It's seriously an amazing time to be here with so many of us playing the same thing at the same time.

Congrats on the release! The demo and the previous freeware releases never really clicked with me, but I can see the quality nonetheless.
