Explode patents. Freeze patents. Set patents on fire. Dissolve them in acid. But they'll fight back. A sidescrolling shooter inspired by the awfulness of patent illustrations.

Patent blaster is the result of what would probably be diagnosed as a mild manic episode brought on by the discovery of Context Free Patent Art. More specifically, I blame @jareiko:

There's programmer art, and then there's lawyer art. contextfreepatentart.tumblr.com/post/423950018…— Jasmine Kent (@jareiko) February 8, 2013

At the time, I was writing CatEngine, a 2D game engine abstraction layer. Before I knew it, a quick tech test had become an entire game. There's still a fair amount of cleanup to do, but it's on course to be released next month. The game will probably cost $5 - and of course there will be a demo!
