“I’m hoping to deliver a fantastic gaming experience to those who, like me, want that retro action feel. Most players have enjoyed what I have so far, and I believe they will get that warm fuzzy feeling when they load up the final version of the game. To turn this possibility into a reality, supporters via Patreon are the lifeblood of our development. I’m very grateful for those who are choosing to accompany me on this journey.”
