Ikaruga appears on Steam Greenlight, voting now open

Friday, 4th October 2013 09:24 GMT By Dave Cook

Ikaruga – the quite brilliant yet teeth-gnashingly brutal shooter from Treasure – has appeared on Steam Greenlight. You can vote it up or down now.

Back in the day this was seen as something of leverage in high school. “What? You HAVEN’T played Ikaruga on Dreamcast? GTFO.” Yeah, we were fanboy dicks back then. Memories.

Anyway, the Ikaruga Steam Greenlight page can be found here. It’s an intense shooter that sees you flipping your ship between black and white modes to repel black and white bullets. Simply be the same colour as the bullets to avoid being killed. It sounds like a simple mechanic, but man is it tough.

The Steam build will come with gamepad support, two-player co-op, and two-player local play on one controller. It retains all of its features from the original on top.

Would you vote for this? Let us know below.

    Welp, my reaction to this shouldn’t be surprising! So yeah, voted up.

    Interestingly, voting down doesn’t actually achieve anything functionally on Greenlight. It just removes the game from the list of games shown to you, but it doesn’t actually change its status. So the two buttons are basically ‘vote up’ and ‘ignore.’

    So voting down doesn’t actually accomplish anything. The best thing you can do is get a big group of people together to vote your favourite projects up. Just thought I’d mention that in case anyone wasn’t aware of that, because I wasn’t either until a little while ago.
