this oddly reminds me of super metroid

The developer, Starflower Games, aren't able to actually release the game due to some financial reasons, I think. I don't know the exact details, but if you check the discussions titled "Where is the steam version?", the Steam representative Gekko actually says they are "not active at the moment". So it seems like until all that is settled, none of their games are eligible to be released or updated...Starflower Games might be a dead company, sadly.

It might take time to do all the adjustments, as not all greenlight to steam processes are quick.

You can still buy it on GamersGate and other websites if you really wanted to do so. This game is actually years old. It's not under active development or anything like that.

Sad to see that they're not planning to release it after getting greenlit...

looks kinda cool... And also like a slower Super Metroid, I´d like to try it.

Please don't make me donate to get past the undead orc caves, cause then i'll have to grab an electric imbued sword and head underwater to the mermen.

Whoa, looks like the story of my perma novice on "a" RO server. Sweet if it is a Novicevania.
Pixel Lover Oct 30, 2013 @ 6:57pm

hare1222 Oct 26, 2013 @ 12:30pm 
I have Project Black Sun, DRM-free, via GamersGate. Love it. Tough as nails, but awesome.
Gekko  [author] Oct 2, 2013 @ 4:22am 
If it is possible, and no time-consuming process, then yes.
Luchador138 Oct 2, 2013 @ 4:11am 
will you give steam keys to those that have already purchased this?
Gekko  [author] Oct 2, 2013 @ 3:31am 
Yes, we will add gamepad support for Mac.
cybertrance Oct 1, 2013 @ 2:46pm

Luchador138 Sep 13, 2013 @ 12:22am

i get interested when i hear metroid-vania, but i lose interest if i see a game heavily revolving around projectile dodging (game screen full of dozens of projectiles you must avoid) that isn't fun for me at all. (rogue legacy, etc)
Gamer_4biz Aug 30, 2013 @ 4:12pm 
fulls a badly need area on steam !
Lil' Sassy Sex Magi Supreme Aug 30, 2013 @ 1:39pm

Congrats! Don't forget about Linux support!
kalirion Aug 28, 2013 @ 11:00am 
Congrats on getting on Steam! Played on GamersGate and its great, but please flesh out the story a bit (well, add one) and make the automap more useful by showing exits & entrances.
Desidiosus Aug 28, 2013 @ 8:42am 
I have the game on Gamersgate and probably some others too, so is there any chance of getting a Steam key?
Chaplain Gaunt Aug 23, 2013 @ 6:47pm 
looks like it will be a fun game
DanielL Aug 22, 2013 @ 3:17am

ElvisMarques Aug 21, 2013 @ 6:03am

Very nice game!
Fabulous Prince Adam Aug 12, 2013 @ 7:07pm 
Looks interesting, I like the 2-d Effects, the story sounds a little over done but... Perhaps you can add something like a Twist into it? Other than that, looks like it would be a fun game to mess around with on a rainy day.

Uberstrike Aug 11, 2013 @ 12:04pm 
dunno if it would be good
Lord Sheogorath Aug 11, 2013 @ 10:21am 
its not greenlit yet because some dont vote YES when its just good. some only vote yes when they will buy it. i think its good but im not going to buy it. so no.
badwords Aug 11, 2013 @ 5:22am

I love metroidvania games! I hope you can get it to run a bit faster if it gets greenlit.
GOOD LUCK!!!
HPK Jul 28, 2013 @ 8:47pm 
Seems to be a pretty decent game based on the video and premise.
McGwire Peña Jul 25, 2013 @ 6:07am
