A downloadable game

Outnumbered and outgunned in deep space? No problem! Turn bullet hell into bullet heaven with your advanced Schildmaid technology and start collecting dangerous projectiles to power up your ship and score big! But when your shield runs out and danger time kicks in, you better switch up your strategy fast...

Schildmaid MX is a fresh, new and shiny 2D shoot 'em up coming in 2021, in which you pick 1 of 3 ferocious space fighter crafts to wreak havoc on the invasion fleet that threatens your planet. Embark on multiple attack runs and put fear in the hearts of your enemies. The best pilots are immortalized on the online leaderboards!

Schildmaid MX features:

  • delicious bullet absorbing scoring mechanics;
  • a friendly difficulty curve for beginners in Jaeger Mode;
  • instant action and a frantic challenge for veteran shmup players in Krieger Mode;
  • a true endless survival gauntlet for the most die hard players in Chimera Mode;
  • multiple secret boss fights that activate via specific player actions and achievements;
  • 3 selectable ships;
  • numerous loops that progressively introduce new enemies and situations across all 3 game modes;
  • more than 40 handcrafted stages, spread out over the different game modes;
  • automatically saved checkpoints after each cleared stage in Jaeger Mode
  • online leaderboards;
  • unlockable in-game achievements and titles for your player profile;
  • amazingly catchy OST by Ed Tremblay of Studio Mudprints;

GREAT! Very nice to hear. :)

i cant buy this, is it live yet?

Still in development! We hope to bring you good news in the coming months. 

Cool, thanks for the reply. ๐Ÿ‘

You're welcome, thank you for your interest. :)

waiting immensely!!!at least the demo now!!success


Thank you! We're working very hard to release the game in the near future.

Found this via Retro Asylum.. Looks beautiful and fun! UN Squadron is one of my favorite shoot em ups too. Would definitely pick this one up if it releases on Switch (and probably for my Mac too if it's able to run it).

Thank you wiedo! Yes, the DANGER state in UN Squadron inspired our core mechanic. And we do have serious plans to release Schildmaid MX on Switch and perhaps other platforms as well.

Mac version will be there from the beginning ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

If your machine is not too old it should be able to handle it.
