Let's just say I'm not very fond of the patent system. My way of dealing: making Patent Blaster, a sidescrolling explodey kind of game based on awful patent art come to life. Your mission: invalidate those patents using any means necessary.
Elephants charge at you with a stick of color acting like a lightsaber, before falling to your superior flamethrower, but not before they’re resurrected and your cackling evil twin erupts on the scene, literally flying in all directions, just above the hovering hollow bear with a freeze ray. I love games in which each second of gameplay can be described as thus; it’s delightfully ridiculous.
Chris Priestman, Indie Statik

...strange, juicy, and fun... The visual style of this game is unique.

@lochen2014 @IndieGameStand Basically, the game already has account keys, so a 1-to-1 mapping of game to Desura keys has to be created.

Adding a bunch of stuff to detect and report network desyncs in #Airships. Given I want to do tournaments one day, kinda important.
