It was a routine day. I was checking my email when, abruptly, I was bathed in a green light. I asked aloud. "What's happening? I've never received an email like this before." My hand raised to shield my eyes, or else I would have been blinded.

When the light faded and I regained focus. I squinted at a simple message scrawled across the monitor.

Congratulations guys. You did this. All I did was put it out there. That was the easy part. You guys voted on it, shared it, and shot us up on the steam greenlight charts for a rapid approval. Bravo. The only thing left is for us to make an amazing game. You can take five.


I make it a conscious effort to not spam you through Kickstarter. So every little minor cool thing that pops up doesn't always make the "Kickstarter update" cut. But if you DO like every little tidbit of Nefarious related news, sketches or various art pieces. Check out my twitter account, where I often post WIP's and other little small updates.

Nefarious is about being the bad guy! Your goal in each stage is to kidnap a princess, and then thwart a hero. Your ultimate goal is to conquer the world! Mwahaha! Face the trials and tribulations of being a 2D platformer villain as you do what villains do best!

Games like these, where you get to be the Big bad, are really rare. Too many hero games. So, when is this coming out on steam store?

Another game I didn't get to back initially on kickstarter due to lack of funds, but after playing it at PAX South, I immeadiatly slacker backed it. Love the art and music, really just the whole concept. Yeah playing as the bad guy isn't new, but you are actually doing the boss fights and stuff correctly, which I believe is a first. Really fun and great game, can't wait to play it.

I'm more excited about this game than anything else that was at PAX South this weekend. Its refreshing to see classic games making a comeback. I will definitely be buying this.
