Smith and Winston is a twin-stick shooter made entirely out of really small voxel blocks, it looks awesome and the destruction possible is also pretty amusing.

Execution Unit have now announced that it's leaving Early Access next week on August 27th. Speaking about the upcoming release on Indie DB, the developer said:

Smith and Winston has been polished, tested and tweaked and we’re ready to leap out of early access with a full release on the 27th August. Its been a long hard slog but we’re almost done and we both think we have game that we can be very proud of.

Smith and Winston is the culmination of four years of work, a brand new engine, editing tools, numerous design documents and a bucket load of ideas, we’ve evolved from a simple twin stick shooter to a full blown space adventure, with exploration, puzzles, enemies to defeat and a whole lot of things to blow up!

They also have a new trailer to show off:

Thanks, we also suck. We sort of put this in as a joke at first because Charlie (the artist) has a young kid and it would be nice to give him a break. Then we realised we were using it, not the kids!

Had that game since EA, didn't play much of it, but I did file a bug report, lol

Glad to see it's finished.

Bloody typical Linux user, buying games and filing bug reports like some sort of rebel without a cause! /s
