Reminds me of TG-16 games. 16-bit graphics combined with 8-bit sound. Looks awesome. I want this game now!

Linux release, I'm there. Saw this on Game Trailers, when I saw the bit at the end about getting this green lit, this was the first place I came to give it a yes vote! Looks awesome, can't wait to play it.

Mac release alone has my vote, but the music is GREAT, and awesome creativity like using arms for weapons and riding a ghoul. Great job to everyone involved!
