Monokey has announced their participation in the latest Shmup-Dev competition, with the entire Force Majeure team reuniting and the introduction of a new member named rayraytea. Force Majeure is still set to debut as a shareware title this winter 2007.

Will the final product adapt a sketched look (like Eraser) or can we expect more pixelated eye candy? Here's hoping that we are able sample more than two levels with the induction of a another sprite artist, but the contest could be tight as X-0ut, Linley and cactus (Prototype, Excellent Bifurcation and Clean Asia) will be involved as well - all winners from previous Shmup-Dev compos.
