Shmups! Shmups! Shmups! I love shoot ’em ups, especially when indie developers put a special touch on new games in a genre that dates back to the late 1970s. Cygni, shown off today at the Future Games Show, is from a Lebanese indie team, and wow is it a looker.

The trailer above starts with a close-up look at our ship and pilot, before pulling back to the classic top-down perspective over a futuristic cityscape. The action is what’s especially striking here, though—this is one fast-moving shmup, with enemies on and off screen in a flash and your ship outputting a constant stream of firepower. One the boss shows up, I think it’s safe to say this is a bullet hell shooter, with a whole lot of incoming fire to dodge.
