If you want to give Vintage Year a try, it's currently available at

When a band of criminals known as the "Skull Faction" takes over a wine cellar holding an expensive wine aged through many generations, it seems apparent there is no hope for its recovery. However as mysterious as is this faction of bandits, there are other followers involved that are willing to combat the danger that remains shrouded within the darkness. If recovered safely into the hands of a trustworthy adventurer, the wine would prove to be of a truly vintage year. Gunsling and slice through a challenging set of randomly generated levels, filled with traps, enemies, weapons, bosses, and items to help you along the way. Decide a plan of action and light the way as you turn corners to engage in combat with multiple enemies at once. Throughout the game you can use the corks that you collect to purchase lanterns and new characters (including a custom character that you can create!). Level up and become more powerful, such as dealing poison damage or absorbing incoming damage, each with a visible effect on your character!

That would be grand.

Leave it in your capable hands, thanks..

@Bit Monkey I intend on speaking with the previous distributors about providing Steam Keys for early supporters.

Woop, woop! ..well deserved 'Greenlight' El Oso - great game.

The question is, can those of us who have already bought the game, expect a Steam key?
Having already checked the relevant Game wallet, to no avail ('IndieGameStand') I can only hope.

Great for you on the Greenlight. Played for a while today and had some fun. I'm a sucker for dual-stick shooters, and this one hit some fine notes. Big, chunky pixels (without being too far), decent reportoire of weapons and power-ups, and randomly generated levels? Yep. Can't wait to see what you've cooked up for your next game.
