I don't know if y'all know, but a prototype for pre-reset Rockfish-- the unreleased Pixel iOS game that was cancelled in favor of Gero/Kero Blaster-- was released by Amaya himself yesterday, probably because he thought it was neat.

Super wonderful to see this actually happen. Aside from having to find some form of magnification to avoid eye strain, it's still pretty enjoyable, sort of an intriguing middle ground between Ikachan and Kero Blaster, a bit un:sun:ed overall but that's to be expected. I particularly liked the

with the weapons and the presentation and atmosphere are top-notch as ever.

UPDATE: Alula, the person who did mobile ports of other Studio Pixel games, made an android port of Rockfish.
It actually has a newer translation than the one seen in the original upload.

The original English text was translated using a version of DeepL from like 2011 or whatever, while the newer one was a hand-translation. (It was also shown off at the Independent Games Festival.)
