trailboss has announced MAIDEN, a rail shooter that aims to land on Virtual Boy and Steam in early 2019.
MAIDEN is a rail shooter in which colossal humanoid robots known as Maidens fuel a global struggle over resources. You control a team of pilots fighting their neighboring country over an energy mine. Your team is underfunded, understaffed, and ill-prepared for the battle ahead, but you’re willing to fight until your dying breath. You’ll venture across cities, deserts, forests, and mountains both in air and on land. The world of MAIDEN comes alive thanks to a mixture of hand-drawn pixel art and prerendered 3D models. MAIDEN aims to be the ultimate Virtual Boy technical showcase.
A Kickstarter campaign is said to happen next month. Check out the MAIDEN Development Thread for more information and regular development updates.
