Here's a title we've been tracking since we first heard about it a couple of years ago. Produced by a tiny team of indie developers right here in our hometown (er, okay, we grew up in the 'burbs) of Philadelphia, it's Jamestown.

Described as a "neoclassical" shooter, it's nothing but handcrafted pixel art and insane levels of top-scrolling shoot-em-up action.

If this is your kind of thing, definitely check out the videos. The screenshots don't do this thing justice; the level of animation is impressive. In terms of production quality and "look" it reminds us of a high-end NeoGeo production like Metal Slug or Pulstar, if the NeoGeo were capable of symphonic sound, transparency effects, and had an even wider color palette.

If you have a Windows PC and aren't buying this game, we urge you to pounch yourself in the groin until you either pass out or have some sort of epiphany that causes you to realize the error of your ways. Available now on Steam, D2D, and Gamer's Gate.

That was Jonestown. Jamestown was a colony in the Outer Banks/Va Beach area where all the settlers randomly disappeared.

Man, Steam's being a dick to me when I try to buy it. Guess I'll try one of the other sites.

This is really fun so far! I'm not a super-duper-hardcore-shooter-know-it-all, but I've liked overhead shmups since the olden days and this is really awesome. If only I could go back in time and show it to my 12 year-old self. "Self, I know MUSHA is rocking your world right now, but this is what you'll get to play someday! And actually MUSHA will still rock your world."

When you have enough money to buy the second ship, definitely do so. The secondary weapon is directional (you'll see what I mean) and it really opens up a lot of possibilities.

Roanoke is, apparently, a floating continent on Mars!

While we're on corrections... it wasn't Kool-Aid used at Jonestown, it was Flavor Aid. An extremely common misattribution.

Yes, but, "drink the flavor aid" is hardly the saying, now, c'mon son

These guys called me last week out of the blue and asked if their composer could perform a few songs in the pax prime jamspace. Looks like it's more popular than I thought.
