Quyrium is a challenging bullet hell shoot'em up (or "shmup") made for hardcore gamers as well as players who are new to the genre. It is heavily inspired by the classic arcade games but it also comes with some fresh flavours. The game is set in the year 2143 and features mysterious alien landscapes, beautiful space scenes, powerful weapons, extreme special effects, and an insectoid-looking alien race, presented in an unusual mix of 2D- and 3D-graphics.
HistoryHow it started
In the 80's and 90's, arcade games were extremely popular and they were always fascinating to us, especially because arcades were rare in Germany. Thanks to the C64, Amiga 500 and the 8 to 16 bit consoles, we had access to all the well known classics that are still around to this day. In summer 2014, we merely messed around and created some simple but cool looking bullet patterns. At first we were joking around and said "We should make a game out of this" - on October 1st 2014, we started the project.Shooting bullets
Before we could start creating the actual game we had to develop a system which would allow us to rapidly create the typical bullet patterns. We called it "Danmaku Engine" and in February 2015, we released it as an extension in the Unity Asset Store to allow other people to create complex bullet patterns with ease.Release of the demo
On December 29 2015, after fifteen months of hard work, we finally released the first demo. Even though this was an important milestone, there's still a long road ahead of us.

About Virtual Dropkick
We are a tiny little indie-game studio based in Hamburg, Germany. In late 2014, we decided to develop our own games for passionate gamers who love challenges. In the late 80's and 90's, we were playing games that required skill and patience in order to get rewarded - and we loved it! Because we are convinced that this isn't just nostalgia, we want to bring back the challenges and experiences we grew up with, but with modern technology.
