I was able to launch it ONCE, the config came up, then it crashed. Never again I was able to even launch it.

Mind blowing I love it!! I hope you guys enjoy it too!! If you guys like what I do subscribe really appreciated all the support thanks!!

This is a great game. The design is very good. We enjoyed it very much.

Here is a short video we made while playing:

This game is addictive and really fun! Gross, scary at first, then addictive! I couldn't stop playing it and trying to get first place. I'll settle for 2nd for now, though I might go back and try to get that coveted 10,000 perfect points to see what the ending is in the future. :)

Definantly my favorite! 

(+2)

Glad you like it ! Well it certainly is the one who left the most people wondering " WHAT IS THAT THING ?" ( huheuhuheuheue )

(+3)

SO I've played this game before and it was amazingly awesome !

but then I decided to make a classic mortal kombat edit for it ! Was it a wise choice ?!!
You decide !

(+3)

This really is a shooter game game with a difference! Learn as you go, and survive as long as you can!

There's a lot more to this than I initially expected, and I didn't do the best job of surviving either, but this is definitely the kind of game I can see myself playing a lot more of in the future. Keep up the awesome work and I'll keep trying to escape the womb! =)

Very strange game but I really appreciate the uniqueness of the game!

Hello Jar_Red,

The team is really glad when players enjoy the uniqueness of the game because that was the vision of the game that we had of it since the beginning of the project. We wanted something really different of what you could expect of a SHMUP and your comment is a kind of proof that we managed to do that successfully, Thanks.

Hello StepVibes,

We appreciate the video you did on Belly, to answer your question about why we didn't materialize the monster in the background is that we had somes rules to respect, like you can see it is a SHMUP experience which is a gender of game that rely a lot on the Highscore. Therefore we decided to create an endless game in which you can always score points as long as you stay alive. Having a boss here would put an end to the game which would lead to a restriction of what score you could do at maximum.

maybe if you put a boss every 10 or so waves, not as a finisher wave, but like a bonus wave, y'know?

this  game is awsome

Thank you SOLAR WOLF !

Hello GuillermoFornaris,

We are glad you liked our game !

Thanks for the feedback.

Very creative game and cool concept. I really enjoyed playing it! 

(+5)

This was one of the most creative and strange games I have ever played. I was both fascinated and creeped out the whole time. Belly's gameplay for some reason reminds me of older retro defense shooter style games like Galaga. Which is not to say the game feels old. The visuals and experience I think truly capture what it would be like to be in a creatures stomach. I hope that the developers take the creativity used to develop this game into all their future projects! If you want to see what my experience was like you can check out my lets play below.

Hello TylerTheTornado,

We appreciate a lot your feedbacks and feels about our game. We will definitlvy put as much heart in our next project as we did for this one if it's not even more. Our next project will be released around June so if you really liked this one you can follow each member of the team on Itchio, we don't know yet the composition of the next teams but this team probably won't be together for the next project, at least not in the whole. Thanks !

Will do! I look forward to seeing what everyone involved does going forward!

Played your game for an indie romp! Gotta say this was nifty and gross in a good way. I played more of it just casually after I was done recording :) Hope to see you make more in the future 

Your game starts at 6:23!

Hello LordofNope,

Thanks for the feedback, we are happy that you appraciated it. If you don't want to miss our next project that will be release in June, you can follow each member of the team (we probably won't work on the same project).

Hello Nobody In Nowhere (kinda weird hehe),

We are really glad you had a great time playing Belly. Thanks for the feedback and the video !

What are the Requirements for your Computer?

(+2)

Hello G_C4T!

You don't need a powerful computer. If it doesn't work well, just choose "low" graphic setting.

A laptop plugged into a mains is the best option.

Have fun with Belly!

The Belly Team.

The game was alright, but could use a few fixes, the enemies after the first few waves bombard you and it's hard to fight them back, neat game but needs a little work. This was the last game I played in this video.

Hello Spancore,

Thanks for your feedbacks, we're already aware of them because we made this game in a short amount of time and we won't change anything since this project is over now. We're going to move on a new project pretty soon at ENJMIN.  You can count on us to do better games in the future.

Hello Neco The Sergal :) !

Thank you for your video, it's always a pleasure to watch players experiences. Your in-game reactions are linked to our intention, that's cool.
It was a 6 weeks student project and we love our game, we are thinking on how we can improve our "Belly".

Have a nice day !

Have a great day!

The Belly Team.

Hey, I'm glad you like the video. Yeah, played Resquid and I'll look at Erosion too. Lots of cool projects from the talented people at ENJMIN. :) 

(+6)

Cool game. I don't quite understand the story, but i guess it's suppose to be kinda ambiguous.  

(+2)

Hi ProofreadFire!

Thank you for your video! It's always great to see players reactions playing our game!
Yes, we really wanted to make an ambiguous expérience.

Btw, love your reaction when you pressed Start in the main menu!

The Belly Team.

Pretty ambiguous game with interesting shooting mechanics!! I love it but it should be awesome if this game does improve more in near future!! I would love it if this game need to added quest and story line and plus more crazy monster this game will glad blown. I hope developer update this game with more interesting mechanics looking for to it!! I recommend everyone to check out this game thank you!!
