It no longer needs to be stated that we here at Big Download love our shooting games. From the free indie kind to the commercial kind, we love them all. Lithium Leaf brings us word, however, of a Shooting Game Maker in the beta stages which would allow a player to make their own shmup with minimal effort on the coding front. There's not much info at the moment, and the beta doesn't seem to work on any machine it touches, but this is promising news, especially considering the publicity and renown RPG Maker and Game Maker gather.
