This year has been a good one for supporting Indie Developers. I’ve purchased Whisker Squadron Survivor, Gal Guardians, Kena: Bridge of Spirits, Lost Ember, Ultra Kill, Trinity Fusion, and Ex-Zodiac! All great contenders for both PC and Steam Deck. I spent tonight tweaking my Ex-Zodiac Steam Controller config. I enabled mouse aim in game and set the right touch-pad as mouse, and made sure to enable gyro. It feels perfect!
Ex-Zodiac is very Star Fox like. You’re a pilot named Kyuu, embarking on a journey across the Sanzaru Star System to save its planets. Each planet houses an enemy of the terrorist organization ZODIAC, and it’s up to you to destroy every last one of them… or explode trying. 😛
I never had a chance to enjoy Star Fox properly, mostly due to not having a SNES or Nintendo console. So it’s nice to see the genre branching out, if Nintendo doesn’t want my money then I’m more than happy to support indies with their own inspired visions. Definitely worth checking out if you’re looking for something similar.
