Psychotic Psoftware - Update 90
Psychotic Psoftware - Update 89 (Part 2)
Release date: Early 2014
The modern-retro styled Shoot-Em-Up from one-man game studio, Psychotic Psoftware.

Spanning vibrant locations to a monster soundtrack, Power-Up thrusts you into battle with a diverse range of fighters, freighters and titanic level guardians. If you loved retro SHMUP classics like R-Type, Hellfire or Project-X, you'll get a real kick out of Power-Up's slick, detailed visuals, challenging gameplay and impressive arsenal of weapons.

The Earth is doomed! As you pilot the prototype fighter, Weapon-F through the debris of your vanquished escape shuttle you come to realise that you are the last human alive. You alone must take on the army of reptilian monsters responsible for the destruction of humankind. You alone must carry out your final mission... Revenge!

Power-Up was released on XBLIG to critical acclaim for its "smooth-as-butter" playability and its RPG-like weapon system, not to mention its formidable bosses and belting music!

Hiya guys,

Steam keys... Good question. And yep, I'm on the case. I er, released Power-Up on the same day I started my new job so you can probably imagine it all went a bit haywire for a while. Things are calming into a rythm now though so I'm slowly getting on top of things.

I'm in the process of getting Steam code orders from the bundles and various other placed which have sold Power-Up and over the course of the next week or two I'm hoping to get everyone who bought and backed the game on Kickstarter their Steam keys.

If you think you've been missed out after saaay, the week end of the 13th/14th and your distributor hasn't sent you your key, do drop me a line via my email address and I'll order and send you a key directly.

That sound alright?

Right, better get back to it. Been a long day and it ain't over yet. ;)

Congrats on your release!
I have the game on Desura and can't wait to get a Steam key for it. I think I got it through Groupees. I know I'm going to have to play for a while to beat it, and I'd rather log the time on Steam :)
Any word on Steam Keys?

Thanks very much guys.

Hey WarfistStorm. Thanks very much for the love. With converting the awards, etc over to Steam, I'm not sure if they can do that sort of thing as Power-Up's my first go ;) ...I'm still working out how to get awards into the Steam version though, so it might not be an issue just yet.

What I can say is drop me a line after the release and as you bought a copy already I'll make sure you get a Steam key too. :D

Voted and CONGRATZ on the Greenlight!! ^_^
One question I may have then: If I purchased the game off Humble Bundle literally RIGHT before you got the Greenlight on Steam, is there a way you, or anyone here, may know of to "convert that" into "Steam Edition"? ;) You know, Achievements, possible Game Cards, etc. =D
Again, Gratz to you man! (And wow...ONE MAN did all this??) Mind = BLOWN haha
