Cover Game Articles

Inti Creates: Introduction and History - This month on MoeGamer, we’re taking a look at a group of games that are connected primarily through the developer that created them. That developer is Inti Creates, a group formed by ex-Capcom staff in 1996. It’s a company that is much-beloved by its fans, but which has, over the years, tended to beaver away … Continue reading Inti Creates: Introduction and History
Inti Creates: On Being a Truly International Game Developer - As gaming has evolved, the medium of “video games” has broadened considerably. Or perhaps it’s more accurate to say that a wide variety of disparate markets have started to overlap and mingle. One of the most interesting things about gaming today is the wide variety of experiences we can enjoy from creators all over the … Continue reading Inti Creates: On Being a Truly International Game Developer
Blaster Master Zero: Retro, Reimagined - Blaster Master Zero for Nintendo Switch and 3DS is an interesting game in more ways than one. Not only is it a loving remake of a very fondly regarded title from back in the NES era, it also incorporates elements of the Famicom game that was heavily reimagined to become Blaster Master. On top of that, … Continue reading Blaster Master Zero: Retro, Reimagined
Mighty No. 9: “Better than Nothing” – The Game People Love to Hate - Mighty No. 9 is an interesting tale from 21st century gaming that has doubtless been very influential… though perhaps not in the way that was originally hoped for. One of the earliest success stories of the crowdfunding boom in the early 2010s, the Kickstarter campaign for Mighty No. 9 promised something a lot of people were hungry … Continue reading Mighty No. 9: “Better than Nothing” – The Game People Love to Hate
Azure Striker Gunvolt: An Electrifying Action Platformer - As we’ve already seen, one of Inti Creates’ biggest strengths as a developer is its ability to understand what made the games of the past great while simultaneously updating them with modern conveniences and conventions. Azure Striker Gunvolt, a relatively new series from the company but one which has already gone on to be popular and … Continue reading Azure Striker Gunvolt: An Electrifying Action Platformer
Mighty Gunvolt Burst: Bringing It All Together - If you ever wanted to play a game that is clearly Inti Creates “at play”, Mighty Gunvolt Burst on Nintendo Switch and 3DS is emphatically the game for you. Coming across as a rather wonderful attempt to fling everything at the wall and see what sticks, this NES-style, Mega Man-inspired romp features an impressive degree of … Continue reading Mighty Gunvolt Burst: Bringing It All Together
Azure Striker Gunvolt 2: Amping It Up - What makes a good sequel? It’s a question that there isn’t really a conclusive answer for, because there are so many different ways you can approach it. In the world of video games, we’ve had titles that completely reinvent themselves from their previous installments, games that simply offer more of the same, and series that … Continue reading Azure Striker Gunvolt 2: Amping It Up

Other Articles about Inti Creates

Gal*Gun 2: A Fond Farewell - It’s almost time to say goodbye to Sakurazaki Academy — at least until our next visit — but I couldn’t leave without showing at least a bit of appreciation for some more of the extended cast. As you’ll hopefully recall, Gal*Gun 2 includes a feature known as “Rendezvous”, where once you’ve acquired the phone numbers of any … Continue reading Gal*Gun 2: A Fond Farewell
Gal*Gun 2: Narrative, Themes and Characterisation - Much like its predecessor, Gal*Gun 2 has a surprising amount going on its story — much more so than its seemingly fanservice-laden premise might lead you to believe. While the previous game Gal*Gun Double Peace explored the idea of fallibility, and the fact that no two people cope with the knowledge that they are not and can … Continue reading Gal*Gun 2: Narrative, Themes and Characterisation
Waifu Wednesday: Nanako Tamasaki - A good mainstay of any slice-of-life love story is the “childhood friend” character. And while Gal*Gun 2 isn’t exactly your typical slice-of-life in many ways, heroine Nanako certainly fulfils this role very pleasingly. Introduced right from the outset as the girl who sits next to you in class, and someone with whom you have a … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Nanako Tamasaki
Gal*Gun 2: Asking the Important Questions - In any creative work involving a cast of more than one female character — particularly if said work is of Japanese origin — there is one question that is, to some people, seemingly of greater importance than any other. I am, of course, talking about Who Is Best Girl, an eternally raging debate that no-one … Continue reading Gal*Gun 2: Asking the Important Questions
Gal*Gun 2: A Strange and Sexy Little World - A game where you blast cute girls to quasi-orgasmic ecstasy while attempting to fend off the mischief of a cheeky young demon might not sound like the sort of experience that would have good worldbuilding, but the Gal*Gun series as a whole is full of surprises. It’s clear that developer Inti Creates has taken a … Continue reading Gal*Gun 2: A Strange and Sexy Little World
Waifu Wednesday: Chiru Kondo - You know sometimes you see a character and immediately know you’re going to be into them? Yeah, that was me and Chiru, one of the two new main heroines from Gal*Gun 2. My immediately positive reaction to her was before I even knew what sort of person she was through playing the game, though I … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Chiru Kondo
Gal*Gun 2: Introduction - Gal*Gun Double Peace was one of the most pleasant surprises I’ve had in my gaming career. Going into it, I already knew I was going to enjoy the inherently silly concept of “shooting” cute girls with pheromones until they collapsed in a quasi-orgasmic state, but what I wasn’t quite prepared for was the fact that … Continue reading Gal*Gun 2: Introduction
Waifu Wednesday: Kurona - We’re about to kick off a month of Gal*Gun 2 funtimes… so what better time to celebrate one HELL of a girl? Kurona is the antagonist in both Gal*Gun Double Peace and Gal*Gun 2, and a favourite waifu of Matt Papa from developer Inti Creates. It’s not hard to figure out why people find her so appealing… but … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Kurona
The One-Liner Challenge - Time for a Community tag post! This one looked like a particularly fun one, and after the lovely Irina from I Drink and Watch Anime specifically requested me to do one about games, who was I to refuse? The original tag came from The Awkward Book Blogger and was based around, as you might expect, … Continue reading The One-Liner Challenge
What’s in the Box: Gal*Gun 2 “Free Hugs” Edition - Next month on MoeGamer is all about Gal*Gun 2, but in the meantime I couldn’t resist sneaking a peek in the shiny new limited edition box. Publisher PQube and its partners at Rice Digital have put out some really nice (and affordable) limited editions over the last couple of years, so I was more than … Continue reading What’s in the Box: Gal*Gun 2 “Free Hugs” Edition
Waifu Wednesday: Joule and Lumen, The Muse - When I asked Inti Creates producer and localisation specialist Matt Papa who his favourite Inti waifu was, he was initially hesitant to answer, saying it was a “REALLY hard question”. I can understand that response; over the course of the Cover Game features and our previous exploration of Gal*Gun Double Peace, it’s become abundantly clear that not … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Joule and Lumen, The Muse
Waifu Wednesday: Call - I have a bit of a thing for robot girls, I won’t lie. It’s perhaps more accurate to say that I have a bit of a thing for certain types of robot girls, particularly those as depicted in Japanese video games and anime. I am, to be specific, a fan of robot girls who speak … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Call
Waifu Wednesday: Ekoro - As we’re about to launch headlong into a month of Inti Creates sidescrollers for February’s Cover Game(s) features, what better waifu to pick for this week than someone who is rapidly becoming the company’s mascot? First introduced in 2015’s Gal*Gun Double Peace, Ekoro is a third-year student at the Angel Academy, and one of the catalysts for … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Ekoro
Why Gal*Gun VR Needs a PSVR Version - We’ve known that Gal*Gun VR has been in development for a while, but Inti Creates surprised everyone yesterday with a sudden worldwide release… but only on Steam, for Vive and Oculus devices. While the Windows PC market certainly has a lot of early adopters of virtual reality devices, it’s hard to deny that Sony’s VR … Continue reading Why Gal*Gun VR Needs a PSVR Version
Gal*Gun: Sights and Sounds - Gal*Gun Double Peace is memorable for a whole lot of different reasons: its contribution to the revival of rail shooters, its silly but touching plot and its striking audio-visual aesthetic. Unlike many other anime-inspired games, the art and music of Gal*Gun are not the work of particularly well-known or established names — but there’s some decent pedigree … Continue reading Gal*Gun: Sights and Sounds
Gal*Gun: Narrative, Themes and Characterisation - Gal*Gun Double Peace is about much more than just shooting pretty girls until they fall over in quasi-orgasmic states: it’s actually got a pretty decent narrative, too. Technically, it’s got several narrative threads, and in true dating sim/visual novel tradition, it’s only by playing them all that you’ll get a full understanding of everything that … Continue reading Gal*Gun: Narrative, Themes and Characterisation
Gal*Gun: Dating on Rails - Although Gal*Gun Double Peace has the trappings of an arcade-style light-gun shooter, there’s a lot more going on in the game than simply pointing and shooting. We no longer live in an age where a release like Namco’s original PlayStation port of Time Crisis is acceptable to modern consumers, at least at full retail price; players need … Continue reading Gal*Gun: Dating on Rails
Gal*Gun: Introduction and History - With the advent of HDTVs and their different method of producing an image compared to old-school CRTs, one genre of game has largely fallen by the wayside: the light-gun shooter. With that said, however, there are a number of developers out there keeping the soul — if not the exact execution — of this classic arcade genre … Continue reading Gal*Gun: Introduction and History
