Sidescrolling shmup Sine Mora heading to PC next week

Tom Sykes at 09:55am November 2 2012

Bullets, time travel, anthropomorphic animals riding laser-spewing biplanes - it's all there in Sine Mora, the horizontal shmup from Digital Reality and Grasshopper Manufacture released for the 360 earlier in the year. Thankfully, someone has finally seen fit to push the big red `PC version' button, and it's coming in exactly seven days. Hey, isn't that the date that creepy phonecall said you were going to die on? Oh. Sorry for reminding you about that.

While you're definitely not going to be around to play it, others will, and you can see what they're letting themselves in for with the following trailer, which is of the original version of the game. An HD upgrade from 720 to 1080p seems to be the biggest improvement for the PC one, along with a promised 60FPS. The real draw, of course, is the surprisingly rich game world, the hulking Steampunk ships, and the novel timey-wimey-style shooting. Also: dogs and cats riding planes.

Old news since it was announced for PS3 and Vita a few months back. :P

But those versions still don't have dates.

Agreed!

I played the demo for this. It was weird and, as usual for me playing a shmup, I was unable to beat it.

Vita? Sweet! Fifteen bucks will be a bit steep though.

Agreed. Sine Mora has been on my wish list for a long time. Damn space on my 360 hard drive.

Like anyone cares, Xbox has almost no exclusives, anyways.

multi-platform gaming is better practically 85% of the time in my opinion.

Sounds like you need to join the legendary LEGATMIDGET, my friend.

Very pretty, but a very mediocre shmup under all of that pretty.

I'm annoyed this hasn't released on Vita yet. Vita is begging for good schmups.

This is why it's a good idea to make these threads every now and then.

Too many cutscenes for a shmup. It interrupts the pace way too much.

Get a good shmup like Akai Katana, Deathsmiles, Deathsmiles IIX (GoD), Raiden IV, Raiden Fighters Aces, or import one of the many great region-free ones.
