Again, thanks to everyone who's supported Steel Assault!

Welcome to STEEL ASSAULT, a 2D action platformer set in a colorful post-apocalyptic America!

In a future America ruled by fascism, a resistance soldier is sent on a recon mission into the nation's long-abandoned former capital. Steel Assault is a 2D sidescrolling action platformer, with a classic arcade-style design and structure. What does that mean? Tight length, tight design, and high difficulty.

Fundamentally, we believe that retro styles should be an invitation for developers to push the limitations, not an excuse to fall back on them. We don't have any nostalgic pretenses or axes to grind with modern videogames, and we're not trying to sell you some tired rhetoric about "the good old days of gaming". We just want to make a kickass 2D action game.

(Many things have changed since the original Greenlight campaign, and the accompanying Kickstarter; most importantly, we redesigned the game from its original 8-bit style to a more sophisticated 16-bit one. We hope you guys are as excited about this change as we are!)

For more information as the game develops, you can follow us on any of these following platforms.

@JimTheKoreanBlackAmerican thanks I just wish he would update more. This is one of those projects I was really looking foward to and can't stand the fact it isn't out yet even though the developer looks like he is doing a great job. I mean its been 3 months.
