New Awesomenaut coming: Gnaw!

Utrecht, August 8th, 2012 - After a very successful opening week the PC build of Awesomenauts is getting its first update. We've been blown away by the success of the PC version, and the fastly growing community can look forward to lots of updates in the future. Todays' update contains various minor fixes, and a bigger update is coming very soon! This update will introduce a new character, called Gnaw! Gnaw is a nasty piece of work, a dirty doglike creature who likes to bite and spit poisonous ooze on his foes. Trained by his Cosmic biker pirate masters, he is a devious little monster. Anyone interested in setting loose a rabid, chitinous menace, should check out this latest Awesomenaut! Gnaw will soon be added to the Awesomenauts roster, for free! Watch him in action in this trailer:

Gnaw will be playable at GamesCom in Cologne next week. Look us up at the Valve booth in Hall 7.1, stand C030 to get a taste of this powerful new creature!

We've also been getting tons of requests for allowing Youtube monetization for Awesomenauts footage, and we'd hereby like to announce that we are ok with that. In fact we are super excited to see more footage of Awesomenauts!
