Looks neat! What's the premise of the game like?
Thank you! :)
It's an arcadey score chaser where you play as a little robot long after humanity has gone extinct. You're tasked with cleaning up their ghosts.
You do that using the Grapple Beam, which can chain together ghosts and destroy them all at once for a score multiplier!
There's a bit more info here: https://crowbarska.itch.io/ghost-grab-3000
Looks awesome! I'm definitely going to check it out later. How did you achieve the 3D rotating background? It really looks amazing.
Thank you, I really appreciate it! There's a preview build available to $5 Patreon backers (https://www.patreon.com/mattglanville) and I plan to release on Steam within a few months.
The background is pretty simple! There are 2 cameras rendering different layers using culling masks (I think that's the name? I'm not as my PC right now). The background is all on one layer which is rendered by a Perspective camera, and the gameplay is all on other layers rendered by an Orthographic camera.
I'm using the Pixel Perfect plugin from Unity's package manager to get it nice and crunchy.
The background art is just really simple quads with unlit pixel art textures.
Finally, the background camera just rotates in a circle around the scene!
Oh yeah, LOVE the background!!
whoah... getting vibes of another classic game that had some graveyard art... that's going to bug me for ages until I remember. TOMT
could have been topdown / iso
Hey just FYI, I just launched the Steam page for this game! :)
You can add it to your Wishlist if you want to be notified when it releases. Thanks for the kind words!

a happy game!
I guess SOULS OF THE NUCLEAR HOLOCAUST: AI REAPER EDITION was too long, so "ghost grab 3000" was chosen ;)
Looks amazing! Love the Lo-fi 3d background. What does the bar on the left represent?
That bar is your Energy. You spend Energy when you Dash and also every time you destroy the chain of ghosts.
You can replenish it by catching enemy bullets in your beam though! (and it does refill over time, very slowly)
Hey just to let you know, I just made a Steam page for Ghost Grab 3000! https://store.steampowered.com/app/1047580/Ghost_Grab_3000/
If you want a notification when the game eventually releases, please add it to your Wishlist!
Can you tell me how did you made that pixelated trail effect? I'm looking to make something like that in my game
