People have been sending me links to this game for a while now, and I finally got around to downloading the demo. Half an hour later I’d bought the game. I’ll be buying it again – a second time – for WiiWare tomorrow. I do so without the slightest hesitation. I am, in fact, happy to do so.
I’ll have a more complete review of the game later, but allow me this quick bullet-list of cogent informational tidbits:
- No DRM. Region-free. Just download and play wherever.
- Only $20. An irresistible price-point.
- Fun and endlessly innovative.
- Indie game made by a two-man design team, the likes of which has not been seen since the classic “A Guy and His Buddy” design teams of the 80’s.
- Will run on “any computer less than 5 years old”.
- This is the first thing I’ve encountered in two weeks which has been capable of prying me away from City of Heroes.
Please, I invite you to wreck your productivity by getting the demo.

Back in 1999, I rode the dot-com bubble. Got rich. Worked hard. Went crazy. Turned poor. It was fun.
