Live on Kickstarter!!!!!
Description
"The Horizon,
a gigantic space fort built as a monumental symbol of power of mankind during the beginning of the 3rd Millennium.
It is equipped with assault machines and artificial intelligence able of developing weapons on their own.”

After the completion of its construction and before its first debut, The Horizon was taken over and became completely controlled by agent No. 1 of the Union’s R.A.A. (Risk Against Agent) unit, whose codename is Nate.

The pursuit of Nate and The Horizon proved to be difficult, due to the fort’s special ability to space jump and its omnipotent camouflage system. The Union will have to use extreme measures in order to recapture The Horizon.
They will do it, even if The Horizon may suffer some damages.

Besides seizing The Horizon, Nate also took a hostage, who is the daughter of R.A.A. agent No. 21 – codename “Spike.” Nate secretly contacted Spike and, without any explanation, made a negotiation which requires Spike to travel to The Horizon.
Therefore, Spike decided to make a trip to The Horizon to rescue his daughter and to find out the reason behind Nate’s action.

Hey guys. Wishing you the very best in your efforts in continuing to make this game. It's one of the greatest upcoming games I've seen on this site and others and I can't wait till its release.

this game didn't get the exposure it deserves. I guess with the failure of the Kickstarter, you might have given up :(
Hope that's not the case

well to those who want to throw your money, here's your chance. I'd have to think on my part in doing so.

Hell yeah! As "HeavyModd" pointed out: A Metroidvaniagame with Mega Man influences and the controls seem tight. The bosses looks awesome! Also it reminds me of "Probotector" in some of the artworkstyle! Can´t wait!

I hope the funding failure didn't derail things.

The trailer makes it look epic! I hope to get the chance to play this someday soon!

This is unbelievably underappreciated. It's like Megaman, mixed with Metroid, and even the basic enemies look challenging to take on!
The controls seem tight and the concept is good. There's quality in animation and boss fights look interesting and sometimes even surprising.
Keep it up and don't lose hope!
I'll buy this game if it ever comes out!
