COWER IN FEAR, PUNY MORTALS, AT THE AWESOME POWER THAT IS THE BOSS. THE BOSS COMMANDS THAT THIS BLOG POST BE RENDERED IN ALL-CAPS AND IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THAT, WELL, TOUGH NOOGIES—THE BOSS WILL JUST BLOW YOU UP!!!!!

WITNESS THE BOSS IN ALL HIS MAGNIFICENT GLORY. TREMBLE BEFORE HIS LASER EYE MONOCLE. PROSTRATE YOURSELF IN HUMILITY BENEATH HIS MASSIVE CHEST CANNONS. PRAY THAT THE BOSS SPARES YOU FROM HIS HAMMER AND MACE SWINGY-THINGY OF DOOM!!!!!!!

STILL STANDING? INSOLENT FOOLS. YOU HAD BETTER RUN AWAY IN TERROR, LEST THE BOSS UNLEASH THE FURY OF HIS ROCKET FIST. MAY A SALVO OF A HUNDRED MISSILES FALL UPON YOU!!!!!!!!!

DO NOT TEMPT THE BOSS. DO NOT FOLD, SPINDLE, OR MUTILATE. HE WILL NOT HESITATE TO FIRE HIS GIANT LASERINATOR, SEND FORTH A SWARM OF DRONES, OR FIRE UP THE WHEEL OF DANMAKU!!!!!!!!!!!

SHMUP YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This won’t be a very long post, considering we’re “Springing Ahead” with the clocks this evening. Yuck. I like “Falling Back” much better.

This afternoon I designed out the homepage for shmupyou.com. The image below shows what the landing page might look like when that site goes live. It very quickly establishes a visual theme, and briefly describes the game, the site, and the team.

The final version of shmupyou.com will be a community site for our players to go and report scores, view rankings, submit codes, track awards, and discuss the game and strategies in forums. This adds another experience outside of gameplay and further establishes the Shmup You! “brand.”Shmup You! Homepage Design
