Heavy Metal Death Pirate is a 2D action sidescroller taking place in contemporary urban environments. The main feature of the game is that it mixes many different retro gameplay styles in a single game. There are many unique characters to choose from and they are divided into three different types of gameplay for now: Shoot'em up, Run n'gun and Beat'em up. Of course, the whole game was designed with this in mind and every stages can be completed with any kind of gameplay.
The game is divided into 14 main stages. There are many different objectives to complete in each stages in accordance with the story: reach the end, protect somebody, destroy a particular enemy... There are 13 optionnal side stages: harder levels focusing on a secondary characters or a more obscure side of the story. The scenario has been an important part in the conception of the game.

I don't know. The game is for PC and will be released on Desura on Sept 3rd. It's released earlier on Indie Royale. actually, this game is only playable on PC. It's an error from Indie royale...

"We're sorry, but this game isn't available on PC. If it is released we shall announce it on our Twitter and Facebook and Google+ pages."

Why does it state that is available for WIN-Desura on the front page of Indieroyale's Debut 17 Bundle?

What does this mean exactly?

Ugly artwork and insipid gameplay. Great name though.
