Looks like it would have felt right at home on the Amiga, look at those slick retro visuals!

I thought it looked pretty good, so I shot off an email about their Linux plans and they said this:
QuoteWe are making in Game Maker Studio 2, so all platforms it will support exports. For now, Windows, Mac and Linux exporters are planned.

About the game
Blazing Chrome is a classic co-op run ‘n gun with an original arcade feel. Players can choose between Mavra, the badass human resistance, soldier or Doyle, the groovy rebel robot, to kick some metal ass.

We were mostly inspired by Contra and Metal Slug, but we added our own twist to them. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

So, they are making the next Contra game, hum? Fine by me, since Konami now only want to do those stupid pachinko machines.

It is very nice to see a Brazilian studio continuing to make games. I have Oniken and Odallus in my steam account, I have yet to play them but it seems two very nice games. Hopefully this one turns out great. One thing though is that Odallus does not have Linux support, it works fine in Wine.

I have the original Oniken in my library and installed. Only the unstoppable edition is on Steam now with Windows only listed. Hmmm. When I click the store link for my edition, it take some to the unstoppable edition page.

While i appreciate the pixeled genre, i cannot understand why one should buy one of that games, when he can play tons of similar abandonware.

The same is happening here. When i bought the game it had Linux support, but Steam only has a listing for the unstoppable edition, which has only the Windows support symbol. Weird...

I want to downvote the shit out of you.

It's not about whether or not there are alternatives available, never was, never will be. Game developers expend huge amounts of time and energy to bring us games - and this dev in particular succeeded in creating a (fun) game with a particular aesthetic that is rather hard to get right.

Wanna a pot?

Sorry, but your answer is plain empty.
It's not because...

...that i'm supposed to understand:
