They grow up so fast, just the other day Steel Storm™: Burning Retribution turned 2 years old, running around the office, screaming and nicking all the sweets. As part of our anniversary festivities here at Kot-in-Action™ Creative Artel™ -pardon us- is on sale on Steam™ until May 27 th for a paltry £2.39/$2.99, that's less than the price of your probably quite rubbish lunch. Want a second copy for a friend, you generous little scamp? Then that's £4.79/$5.69, with the Weapon Pack DLC thrown in for your trouble.
Why should you care? Well, Steel Storm™ is top-down sci-fi schm'up, trying to tap into that rich vein of nostalgia and childhood giddiness you used to have, in them good old days. It's sexfully cel-shaded, devilishily difficult and with enough explosions to make Michael Bay's Fourth of July Spectacular look like a soggy firecracker. Built upon the sinister-sounding Darkplaces™ game engine, there's also competitive and co-operative multiplayer, with both DM and CTF modes. For the creatives, there's also and in-game missions editor, coupled with standalone level editor.
Best of all, all purchases of Steel Storm™: Burning Retribution are going directly towards the development of the sequel-come-spinoff and creatively named, Steel Storm 2. Not a schmup, but an FPS charting the story of Aurora Riley, a former Captain in the Royal Interstellar Armored Corps and woman, in a quest to find out more about her fragmented past. Heart-wrending stuff, that's for sure. Steel Storm 2 attempts to take on a whole new genre guns-blazing, trying to match the same je ne sais quois as Doom® and Quake®.
