Those of you eagerly awaiting a new shmup fix needn't wait much longer now. Game developer OPQAM has you covered with the newly announced release date for the upcoming shooter DOGOS. To build up the hype a little bit before giving you the date, take a look at the new wave of screens first:
The story of DOGOS sees Earth having been just been invaded by Zeetnuks, a "perverse race of bio-mechanical beings" from outer-space. A small group of humans come together to defend Earth against the invasion but know that they wont be able to put up much of a fight against the kind of technology the enemies have. The newly formed Resistance decides to take the ambitious route and combine human and alien engineering in an effort to create a unique fleet of ships to help fight against the enemy.
Unluckily for the humans, the Zeetnuks discover the ambitious plan and unleash a surprise attack on the base where the prototypes are being developed. A skilled pilot by the name of Desmond Phoenix, uses a KZ 72, one of the prototypes being built, to escape the attack. The KZ is the ship everyone comes to know as DOGOS. The story follows this pilot and "how his actions changed the future of the human race".
