Warships On The Halloween Night Coming Soon on Steam! - A 2D Arcade Shooter Game - Wishlist Now


I have been working on a new indie game called Warships on The Halloween Night which is a 2D Arcade Shoot them up game based on the war between the human beings and the pumpkin bots.

Wishlist This Game on Steam: 

Warships On The Halloween Night is an extreme Top Down Arcade Shooter game based on the naval war which broke out between the Human beings and the Living Pumpkins.

I also have released the game trailer for Warships on The Halloween Night game. If you are into the shoot'em genre you might like this game. Here is the Official Game Trailer given below:


Warships on the Halloween Night is my very first 2D shoot them up game which brings you back to 90s when arcade games were very popular among the masses. I thought it would be a great idea to work on. 

I have done all of the graphics work, artwork, animation, character design, and programming. I have used Royalty free music for the game since I am not a music guy. I am an artist to begin with and I love programming too.

It took around 1 and a half month to finish the game. I also have worked on the cover art. Key visuals is an important part required for marketing. If Steam cover image is attractive it will encourage a higher number of users to click on the game page link and check out your game on Steam. 

During the development of the game, I got stuck for a few times especially at the ideas and game mechanics. Creating 20 big levels was not a matter of joke. No matter what the situation was I had successfully finished making the game. 


I don't have any other playtesters other than Steam curators who play the game and write the reviews. Well, not many people wrote reviews though. I have tested the game from level 1 to 20 and I made sure there are no game-breaking bugs. As you know, the launch window is crucial because it is make or break situation. I always make sure that the game is free from any major bugs and issue. 


Yes, I have received a review from one of the Steam curators who are into arcade shooters and he has played for about 15 minutes in average. So, here is the review he wrote:
"A fun top down shooter where it feels like an old school game with retro style. Bullet hell at times, which is great, love the Halloween style! Lots of fun for hardcore and casual players!" - Hookups.

Well, that sounds cool. But these reviews does not matter. I just have to learn from the feedback I receive and I will make better indie games in the future. 


Although it was a really challenging for me to make the game of a new genre I have enjoyed the process. Since I have created a game based on the Halloween theme I was super excited and I wanted to finish the game before the Halloween 2019 comes up. 

1. The game will be released on 13th September, 2019.
2. It will be priced somewhere between $0.99 and $1.99.

This is all about the game and if you still have not wishlisted the game yet please do it. I hope you will enjoy the game and yes, cheer me up because I am really nervous as I don't know what will happen after the game goes public. Moreover, it is a great learning experience for me.

I will do a mini postmortem as soon as I have some sales data. Thank you!
