Shoot ’em up (also known as shmup) is a subgenre of shooter video games. In a shoot ’em up, the player controls a lone character, often a spacecraft or aircraft, shooting large numbers of enemies while dodging their attacks.

This blog will and shall be a storage location for any (including the old and perhaps less well written) essays that I write on the subject of game design or analysis, as well as any games I make that I can share here.

The header for this blog is a sprite sheet from a game called White Butterfly.
