Farbs, developer of the must-play ROM Check Fail, brought this game to IGF China and took no prisoners. It was an award well-earned, as this is pure awesomeness distilled into a Flash shmup. ROM Check Fail remixed 8-bit classics in a novel way, and his latest outing also splices in other influences. Captain Forever takes the shmup core and melds it with RPG progression and modular Lego construction. The end result is an interesting beast of a game that places emphasis on player-generated content. Even if you don't dig Asteroids or R-Type you should definitely give this a go.
