The Last Pilot – Special Weapons

I’ve been working away like a maniac on our metroidvania action-RPG The Flawless: Art’s Tale throughout the week but in the evenings I’ve taken a break and done a bit of work on the special weapons for our other video game The Last Pilot.

The Last Pilot is a cyberpunk sh’mup/top-down-shooter hybrid where military cats fly planes and shoot massive guns. It’s full of glowy effects and big explosions. We’ve been showing some screenshots of the sh’mup part of the game. Where the player takes control of the last pilot, Moon, and his gunner, Raith, as they fly a nuclear powerhouse of a plane called ‘The Weapon’ in an attempt to blow the enemy out of the sky and save the feline world. The top-down-shooter element is not ready to show yet but watch this space. Every plane needs some special weapons right? Some powerful guns or missiles that can be used tactically or as a last resort to get out of a tight spot. Well The Weapon has seven such weapons and we’re going to have a gander at four of them in this article. To fire the weapons you need to get a large enough hit combo, then press the trigger and boom!

The Last Pilot is a cyberpunk shmup/top-down-shooter hybrid featuring cats that fly planes and shoot big guns whilst trying to save all of feline kind. You take control of Moon, the only living pilot for the cats and the last hope to save their world from an unseen threat even bigger than the dog armies. Walk around giant flying air bases solving puzzles, shooting enemies, and talking to other felines. Then, take to the skies in your flying nuclear fortress, ‘The Weapon’. Blast down hordes of aerial enemies, use your power weapons on gigantic bosses, and bomb land targets with ‘big bombs’. The game is a pre-apocalyptic romp through a brutal world at war blending elements of sh’mups like ‘Sky Force’ with elements of top-down-shooters like ‘Hotline Miami’. All this in a fusion of steampunk and cyberpunk styles with an epic story and interesting characters.

The Last Pilot is Coming

We are pleased to announce that our new video game, The Last Pilot, will be coming to PCs, Macs and console at some point in the future.

The Last Pilot is a cyberpunk shmup/top-down-shooter hybrid set in the same world of cats as our sidescrolling Action-RPG The Flawless: Art’s Tale. The game is a pre-apocalyptic prequel to The Flawless and will shine light on the events that led to the brutal Flawless world. The game is being created alongside The Flawless: Art’s Tale and will be released afterwards. A mini version of The Last Pilot may feature in The Flawless as a mini-game in the arcade but this is yet to be confirmed.
