As a huge fan of the old Contra Games (Europe: Super Probotector) it was always my dream to create a game with that gameplay and feeling. Now with Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs I got the chance to make my dream come true with an awesome IP from the ‘80s.
Bplus is happy to develop Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs for Nintendo 3DS and Steam with the following features:
- Contra-style run and gun shoot-'em-up gameplay - Real 80's IP and real 80's feeling - Retro-Style Graphics based on the original Anime and original Artworks - 12 differently themed missions full of oldschool action - 4 playable characters with different abilities and vehicles - Intense Mecha battles to fight the big bosses - Game Soundtrack based on Dale Schacker's Original Series Score made by Roland Koch - Voices from the Series featuring Peter Cullen and others - Mission briefings with original cutscenes from the Anime - Bonus Games and Highscore lists
- In-game music box - Perfect playability with tight controls as you know it from Contra - Tons of stuff to collect and many of secrets to discover - Full New Nintendo 3DS support (+DualStick Control, +HeadTracking)
The main engine is already done and plays well. To complete the game development Chris Strauss made a kickstarter website with some neat rewards: http://kck.st/1WWmbEH We really need your help and all your retro-love to make this game happen.

To honor Satoru Iwata, I decided to put my games on sale from
now to the end of August 2015in America. I reduced their prices as much
as possible so I wouldn't make a profit from them. I actually wanted to
give them away for free, but contracts and other legal barriers prevented
me from doing so. Any remaining cents that come from these sales will
be donated to a cancer foundation.
