The developers did say we would get a review key, so I have reached out today to remind them and ask about it. Hopefully I can get some thoughts up on it soon! Another good beat 'em up would be ideal to have on Linux.

Nice! Will wait for DRM-free release though. They are actively seeking suitable store now (in case nothing will work they promised to distribute themselves).

Bought it day one as promised. So far it seems an excellent game. I only had time to play it today since my network card wasn't functioning properly. I will give a more thorough look at it tonight.

This looks like some good local co-op fun for my new Steam Link.
