Ultionus: A Tale of Petty Revenge
A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Galactic hero Serena S has been insulted on Spacebook. This is obviously a cause to embark on an epic quest to punish the troll in question, who just happens to be The Space Prince. Guide Serena through 7 stages of shmup action, jumping, shooting, and yet decidedly more jumping and shooting to her ultimate goal of total testicular annihilation of her foe. Ultionus is a love-letter to the home computer arcade games of the late 80s and early 90s, particularly Halloween Harry, Astro Marine Corps, Duke Nukem 2 and especially Phantis/Game Over II. The game features tons of lovingly crafted pixel art, and a rockin' chiptune soundtrack by the legendary Jake 'Virt' Kaufman.

Too bad I have to go through a Paypal checkout or else I would have bought this if I could simple use my credit card.
Unfortunately the controller support is a bit spotty, especially on non-Windows platforms, and there is very little I can do to help. People who came up with ways of emulating the 360 pad under Linux were able to get their controllers to work, but not being a Linux guy, I wouldn't be able to say how.
I have long been working on an update to the game that may solve this issue, as well as a whole bunch of other ones (60 fps, larger play window, optional 4:3 mode, turbo-speed, better controller support, redefine keys menu, better game balance etc). Hopefully I'll be able to release it sometime soon.
