…along with the PC, Mac, and Linux! Not sure if it’s a simultaneous release, however.

Still rather ambivalent about this one, but it’s looking better all the time. One thing that still irks me is how brown the screenshots are, compared to the colorfulness of the comic strip. I understand that they’re going for a steampunk/noir vibe but… okay, I’m going to stop complaining until the game is released! I’m sure it’ll be fun and funny regardless.

    They had a nice writeup in PC Gamer about this game. It was interesting to see just how much pressure the developer and the PA guys felt when working on this game. I guess long years of ranting on poorly made games and making fun of the industry as a whole may result in backlash when the PA guys go from critics to creators…

    All that said, I’m looking forward to it. It’s an all indie effort from the ground up so I’d love to see it succeed.

    … and anything that brings more cool indie games to XBLA ( and prevents them releasing an endless stream of retro games ) is a good thing!

    It bothers me that a lot fo people are pushing this game away since it’s turn based combat.

    Knytt Stories is out by the way.
