dulsi I was watching a history of arcade games. (Well I had it running in the background at least.) It talked about cute em ups. I had never heard of the term. Many of the games they mentioned didn't make it to the USA it seems. https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/CuteEmUp I've wondered about what to do with graphics in Shippy 1984. I wonder if a cute style might make it stand out more. Are there any cute em up open source games?
