Hello,

I'm Mike, better known as the one-man games studio Psychotic Psoftware. I'm just learning my way around these forums but thought I'd start with a post about my new game.

Itís called Power-Up.

At its core, the game is a side-scrolling space shooter, with a lite-RPG element in that it gives you complete freedom over which weapons you use and power-up as you play. The mechanic was a bit of a risk but works rather well, offering the option of supreme firepower in certain situations, or carefully balanced weapons for every situation.
Iíve also given Power-Up a big, modern soundtrack and some nice slick rendered-3D visuals to bring the whole concept up to date.

Power-Up took me two years to make and seems to have been very well recieved by the indie gaming press, but itís early days for me and I need all the help I can get in getting the word out there.
If Power-Up sounds like it might be up your street, you can check it out at my site

Youíll also find Power-Up available at most good PC portals including Humble, Desura and currently working its way through the Steam Greenlight process.

Please do give it a whirl, drop it a vote and generally let me know what you think.

Cheers,
