The Magialt Series presents...
A game tribute to the United States of America.
Help Ulrica defend the people of America today!
Magialt's Kansas Panic! is an anime-inspired cross between a bullet hell and a tower defense that takes place in the heartland of the United States of America during the Great War. It takes the aesthetics of the beloved Nintendo GameBoy and uses it to reflect the colorless films of the early 1900’s. Play as Ulrica Sanford, the sweetest girl you'll meet from the heart of America, and defend your turf while dodging the bullets and enemies that come your way to hurt you. As you stand your ground in the battlefield, retro-renditions of classic tunes loved by Americans throughout time will play; including Stars and Stripes Forever, The Yellow Rose of Texas, and, of course, The Star-Spangled Banner. Kansas Panic! is an all-around American game!
NOTE: Please be aware that this is NOT the final product. The game is currently in Beta, so features may be changed or added in the full demo and in the final product.
NOTE: Please read the disclaimers before playing the game.
NOTE: There has been some reports of people's antiviruses detecting this game at its current form as a virus. It is not a virus, but there won't be any work on this problem any time soon. According to YoYo Games, who is the creator of the game engine that this game runs on, there is a process that needs to be done with third-party sources in order for this to be resolved.

UPDATE: Upon writing this, it is New Years, so Happy New Years! The Beta 1.3 update for Kansas Panic is now here! Updates include:
There is a store system now. GXC first had it prematurely so it can uploaded in time for the contest. Go ahead and check it out!The game will now save your data automatically and it will load once you open it up again. Just make sure you see that notification saying that your game has been saved or you will lose your data.An overhaul to the controls. No longer do you have to repeatedly press the shoot key (which is by default the Enter key) to shoot at your enemies. You can just hold it down and it will continuously shoot. Your aim keys for the advanced controls are now your shoot keys. Your Enter key remains as your sole shoot key for the classic controls. Also for classic controls, quickly pressing your shoot key twice will open the inventory and quickly pressing it three times will rearrange your turrets. It will repeat this pattern every time you quickly tap your shoot key.In the settings menu, the "Arrows" option has been replaced with proper key mapping.Your up and down keys can be used in the settings menu now, so navigating it should make more sense now.The controls manual in the pause menu should be more readable now.The tutorial level should be less annoying now.
I will continue to work on the core mechanics of the game for the next update. I want to make sure everything is solid for players before I move on to the meat and potatoes of the game. I hope you all have a nice 2022!
"The Sweet Kansas Girl"
Born in October 19, 1900 in Kansas City, Kansas.
In 1916, she was 16.
Bomb: Stonewall's Laser
Weapons: A rifle with a bayonet, a derringer, and a Ketchum grenade
A sweet, charming girl from the heart of America.
Ulrica Sanford is a magical girl from the rural outskirts of Kansas City, Kansas. She defends the Kansas City area between Kansas and Missouri from the dark forces unseen from everyday life. She is very proud of her family's military history, a tradition ever since her ancestors first landed on the shores of a once unsettled continent. She believes she is doing her part in defending her nation by fighting against the lurking shadows. Besides her career as a magical girl, she helps her family work the fields of their farm.
These little, adorable rodents are not like any normally found anywhere in the world. Despite their uncanny resemblance to rats and mice, it is impossible to spot a point of divergence anywhere in the evolutionary tree of Earth's biosphere between them. The most significant characteristic about the Shaqea is their cube-shaped heads, and their near impeccable intelligence and sentience.
However, these creatures most certainly not mean any harm. They assist magical girls like Ulrica Sanford with their mission of defending people from the encroaching forces of darkness. They don't actually fight alongside magical girls, but they prefer to watch the battle go on, and then make assessments on what is needed for the girls to eliminate their opponents. The Shaqea are the ones who provide the supplies that magical girls want, for a price, of course. While it's nice to help in the battle against the shadows, some payment is nice.
