Black Ice is a Hack and Shoot - a cyberpunk first person shooter / hack and slash rpg about hacking. Think Borderlands meets Tron. The cyber-world is procedurally generated, the colors are neon, the loot is randomized, and the lasers are loud. Black Ice is in Beta - you can try the demo, or buy it for just $5!
Cthulhu help me, I'm planning on launching the Black Ice beta this weekend.

Changes are coming, so here's the rundown for the beta launch:
I will still be offering a free version of the game, with the following changes:
Does $5 seem like a steal to you, and you want to give me more money? Well, I love you, but I'm not going to just take your money. I'm planning on kickstarter-style rewards. Here are my current ideas:
I'm terrified about this launch, but also super excited. If you have suggestions or just encouragement, please leave it below, or email me - blackicethegame [at] gmail.
What am I going to use the money on? Two things:
For the $10 and $20 tiers, your name or item might be part of a big list of randomly generated items or names, and therefore not be seen often. The game is procedurally generated, after all. If you make an item, I will provide you with a cheat code to give you the item, which you could keep private if you wanted. Also, please keep in mind it may take me a bit of time to get these implemented (especially for items).
