zenzi3I love bullet hell games, and more recently, I’ve been getting more and more into them, same story for dual-stick shooters. I just can’t get enough of games like that. I love the arcade feel, I love the challenge, I love the madness, and, as you all know, I’m a massive sucker for bright colors and flashing lights. I almost peed when I watched the Kickstarter video for Zenzizenzic, and if you’re a fan of games like Beat Hazard or Geometry Wars, you probably will too.

zenzi2Zenzizenzic is an insane, no-holds-barred dual-stick bullet hell extravaganza with tons of little objects on screen and a crisp minimalist art style so you always know what’s going on (within reason). It was created by Ruud Koorevaar, who started development in November of 2012 with absolutely no experience programming games, and now in 2014, he’s nearly done. With the game 80-85% done already, Ruud just needs a little help to finish up and release this game onto the world. The question is… Can the world handle it? No. Absolutely not. It’s crazy. If you like crazy, however, you should check it out.

To get behind Zenzizenzic and give Ruud that tiny little extra monetary push he needs, you can support his project on Kickstarter. Alternatively, you can go over to Steam Greenlight, where helping out is as easy as clicking “Yes”. If you’re one of the first 50 people to back (which means you have to hurry), you get immediate beta access, and once Ruud hits €2,000, his game will become a completed reality.
