We've been Greenlit!
Thank you
for voting; you made this possible. All your feedback and criticism was appreciated.

What now?
Having distribution settled removes some of the risk for small indies like us, and allows us to sink more time into development knowing we can eventually reach an audience. We will continue to work hard on Melee Spaceship, but now, less time will be spent worrying about distribution and viability.

Can we stay in touch?
Of course we can! Follow us on twitter here. We will also be posting major updates / milestones here.


Here's a thank you GIF:

Update - April 22, 2016
Top 100!
Thank to everyone for voting! Thanks to you all, we've managed to get into the top 100 on Greenlight within 5 days of launching. That being said, we're still not past the finish line. If you'd like to see Melee Spaceship in the store, please tell your friends.

Website
To make it easier to share Melee Spaceship with friends, we've officially launched http://www.meleespaceship.com. It's super minimialistic (just like the game). Please help us spread the word.

Level Engine
We are putting the final touches on the level engine. This will let us create unique levels for different parts of the game. Here's a peak:



PAX East

Phenomenal looking game from concept to the actual game itself! It's so refreshing to see such nice retro gameplay situated in a modern competitive environment.

Met you guys at Torontaru tonight, and i have to say it is great to see a couple of awesome developers with the right mindset and on the right path!!
