Greenlight!?
What's going on here?

Blasting Agent: Ultimate Edition is basically the same game as before, but better. The original game had a lot of limitations on what could be going on at one time, and framerates, and how big the game could be, so it only had 3 levels, and not quite as much polish and shiny effects as we wanted. It was also pretty much impossible to port it to anything, and it was relegated to being 'just' a flash game.

The Ultimate Edition solves many of these problems. Since it will be a native Windows application, it will run better, have better framerates, and not be quite as limited on size or shininess.

You can even play Fullscreen, with a Gamepad, if you want! Sweet!

I've also added 3 new levels to the game - each with their own new boss, and unlockables. Doubling the size of the game!

And I brought back Bunnymajs to do new tasty jams for the new levels, which, let me tell you right now: they are great!

If you've played the original game, you should enjoy the faithful, but improved versions of the 'old' content, and, there's new stuff for everyone.

Early Access? How long do I have to wait?

The good news is: this game is pretty much already finished!!. I'm putting a few finishing touches here and there on things for performance, minor bugs, and a few missing art and sound assets - and that's about it! This isn't a Crowdfunded project, or an Early Access game where you get to pay full-price for 10% of a game... The goal is to get this baby out sometime mid-December. Merry Festivus!

I want something NOW!

Okay, pal, cool your jets!

Make sure to check out the trailer video for some intense backstory. I'm working on a better trailer video, too, but, I'm way better a making games than videos - just saying.

You can check out the game over on http://axolstudio.itch.io/blasting-agent for... a lot of the same information that's here, but, it looks cooler!

Oh, and, remember those Tasty Bunnymajs Jams I mentioned earlier? Well, you can get them RIGHT NOW over on Bandcamp[axolstudio.bandcamp.com].

That should tide you over until next month...

I want to help make sure this game gets released and is successful!

Aw, thanks!

So, this game is going to be released, no matter what happens here on Steam Greenlight. However, getting it on Greenlight would be a HUGE help both for getting it played by people, and to get people to buy it. So, make sure you vote yes, and, tell your friends, and share the link, and do all that stuff to help get people to check it out!

Do the tweets, and the Facebooks, and all the other stuff. It really does help when you help me get the word out.

Anything else?

Well, you can follow Axol Studio on Steam, and check out/follow us on Facebook[www.facebook.com] and Twitter.

For now, that's about it! I hope to talk to you all very soon with an update saying that the game has been Greenlit... fingers crossed!

About

Released in December, 2009 as a Flash game, the original Blasting Agent was one of the first games made with the first version of Flixel - an ActionScript 3 game framework. It was was praised by fans and won 3rd place in Newground's Flixel February contest in 2010.

Now, the game has been converted over to HaxeFlixel, a cross-platform, open source, free game development framework, retouched, tweaked, and cleaned up to create the definitive version of this classic game.

Great arcade action! :)

Really interesting. Voted positive! BTW, the volume automation of the music in the video is absolutely terrible... it goes in and out. Really annoying...

Also desperately needs Local COOP :)

Easily the best game of the groupees Remute 11 bundle, in my humble oppinion. Hope it gets greenlit. Good luck!
