Yesterday the people of 1985alternativo, responsible for Watman (GBA) and Oh Mummy Genesis (Mega Drive) have announced their next project.

The game will once again be a Mega Drive game, and in a genre that the hardware was made for: a shoot'em up.

It's called Antarex and will be your typical horizontally scrolling shmup. No price or release date are known at this time, but seeing 1985alternativo's previous releases we can expect it to be very cheap, probably no more than 30 Euros.

All there is to share about it as of yet is the first two screenshots:

Hello;
  I´m Rakulnas and I work as graphic designer for 1985 Alternativo (Oh Mummy, Magic Girl (Re-edition)). I would like to introduce you a new game that we are making. Designed for Sega Megadrive/Genesis. Project Antarex (final name may be changed) is a frenetic 1P Shot`m up that is inspirated in best arcade games of that age, but using some modern mechanics.
 
You may see some information over Internet, but as user of this forum I would like to give you one-hand News and solve doubts you may have, so feel free to ask whatever you want. It will be a long time until we could publish It, but we are in the way.

Here is the official teaser presentation in Retro Barcelona 2013. (5:08 in video)
