SEND VAMPIRES AND DEVIANTS TO BULLET HELL!
Humanity is at war against vampires and deviants. Mankind’s last line of defense is a group of children trained to wield powerful magic that can rival the demonic hordes, but at the cost of most of their lifespan. Likened to bullets of a gun, they are known as the ‘Gun Bullet Children’.
The time is NOW! A vampire invasion force has been detected in the airspace above Tokyo Portal 5. Preliminary reports indicate over 500 vampires and accompanying Killings Dolls with reinforcing hordes of deviant humans. The first line of defenses has been obliterated and the Gun Bullet Children are scrambled to launch a counter-assault and stop the invasion.

About the Developer
In 2002, Teratsuki Koichi gathered a group of like-minded individuals and the independent development team FLAT was born. FLAT didn’t limit themselves to specific genres, but created games of various genres, including quiz games and adventure games.
In 2005, the ‘Touhou Project’ phenomena (created by Team Shanghai Alice) kicked off in Japan’s doujin scene and the shooting game (STG) genre exploded in popularity. The FLAT members that enjoyed shooting games decided to try their hand at the genre and the result was the side-scrolling shooter PHANTASM. Having little experience in STGs at that time, they struggled, learning about the genre as they went. Eventually, FLAT shifted their focus to vertical scrolling STGs and created two new titles: eXceed – Gun Bullet Children and its sequel, eXceed 2nd – Vampire.
In 2007, the FLAT team created a shooting-focused brand called ‘Tennen-sozai’. Taking inspiration from famous STG developers such as CAVE, Treasure, IREM, Alpha Systems and many others, they created a new installment to the eXceed series: eXceed 3rd – Jade Penetrate. Featuring a rich cast of mysterious characters, this game flew in the face of the traditional hardcore shooting games. It proved very popular among gamers and became the flagship title of the brand. Since then, Tennen-sozai created a remake of eXceed2nd – Vampire, eXceed 2nd – Vampire REX, as well as a complete overhaul of eXceed3rd – Jade Penetrate, called eXceed 3rd – Jade Penetrate Black Package.
