Greetings , staff of space station megalodon 9! We have a great station news update for you this morning. Redshirt is now taking pre-orders direct from us, and people pre-ordering the game will get an immediate download of the current beta version. The usual disclaimers apply, beta builds of games are not 100% optimized, there may be bugs, more content is likely to be added and balance tweaked etc. Right now, the beta copy is only for windows (mac and linux will follow for the final game and be bundled in for all purchasers) and although we are issuing steam keys to all direct pre-order customers, obviously those keys will not work until the game is released and hits steam.
So what is redshirt? Check out the trailer below:
For those who aren’t regular readers of this humble blog, you might not know that Redshirt is developed by The Tiniest Shark, a fellow UK indie developer. Positech Games (me!) is basically publishing the game. If you liked our game ‘Kudos’, you are definitely going to enjoy Redshirt :D. This represents the first time we have ever published a game by another indie game developer.
If you are ready to go grab yourself a copy of the game (it’s $19.95) you can hit the big button below, or head over to the website at www.redshirtgame.com. While you are about it please TWEET and SHARE the relevant links with your friends and help us get the word out. And in a very ‘meta’ sense, you can even like the games very own facebook page.
