Toon Shooters 2 - The Freelancers (One foot in the door)
Release date: Early 2017

Toon Shooters 2 is an arcade side-scrolling shooter 'shmup' inspired by the golden era of Gradius/RType and more... Co-Op play available (Lifeforce/Salamander), different characters with various roles and abilities. The game will be available for under $5 and we're hoping to launch by the end of 2016. Future content patches will be free of charge as we're mostly looking to build a great game.


The campaign launches with 15 stages of various puzzles and ridiculous bosses.

Up to 5 Co-operative multiplayer available with roles for each player (diagonal shots, healers etc...), player revival & survival tactics.

8 playable characters: Otis, Ben, Angelica, Big Ted, Yolo Creed, Paul, Jonathan & Messenger of Death

7 custom-fit pets (Laser Pup, Laser Dog, Bomber Orange, Homing Missiles, Regenerist, Spinner, Wingman & Mon Furious Rapid Shot)

We're hoping to build a 'castle crashers' type of game for side-scrolling shooters with plenty more content on the way (20 stages planned)


We're a small group of 4 indie game makers who are quite frankly, chasing a dream... a dream to make a living creating games we love to play and share with others.

We grew up pretty much across the world and were heavily influenced by Japanese and American games in the 80s & early 90s.

Our games are an expression of who we are and we hope to share a little bit of that with you.

SiMario, you are 100% correct.

I've had to do this twice and it was hard both times. Without outside marketing you will have to do a lot yourself. The first time I had to actively work just about every single day on the promotion crap alone and honestly I hated it a lot. Got so desperate I even made laminated 'vote for this!' Signs for the game and hung them up at coffee shops and bus stations like in the old days. The good news is that Steam doesn't count 'no' votes against you and if you persevere you will eventually get in. I would also highly recommend staying away from those random 'keys for votes' guys as many times Valve finds out and it actually works against your chances.

Good luck!

Probably just need another 50-60 yes votes to get steams attention, it's kinda hard without some marketing juggernaut though :)

Two things that i hope for this game:
A: For it to come out sometime next year (If its on december, consider it a christmas gift)
B: For all the Walker Class characters to pop up at some point (I was a Calbee main back during when the old servers for Toon Shooters 2 were still up.
Still though, i hope this game gets released someday and good luck to you guys :)
