Shmup devs unite! Read on:
We just supported a 2D Shmup on Kickstarter, Humans Must Answer. What's interesting is that for Sumom Games to get their funding, they received the backing of other shmup devs and created a SHMUP BUNDLE for £7. Currently there is less than £300 to go and only 41 hours left. If you are a shmup fan, this is a great deal to get three shmups. Please support!
Here's our Xona Games Kickstarter profile, for all those interested: kickstarter.com/profile/xonagames. It's interesting to look back upon what we've supported. Looking quickly it's mostly projects that relate to us in one way or another, either as "Xona Games" the company or as individuals as pure gamers.
