Awesome: Awesomenauts Expansion Hits Goal

Awesomenauts has two main goals in its existence. The first is to defy all genre definitions with its blend of 2D RTS platforming and MOBA-like character selection and power usage. The second is, or was, to raise $125,000 on Kickstarter for the production of an expansion. This has been thoroughly smashed within just seven days, opening up a whole slew of stretch goals to now attain.

Awesome: Awesomenauts Coming To Steam Soon

Awesomenauts sure sounds happy about its impending PC release, with guitars going widdly-wee while a man sings a tale of wonder and glory. For some reason I imagine he’s a centaur with a cleft chin and a flowing mane of golden hair, standing on top of a hill and ripping the heck out of a Les Paul. Whether that’s a factual description or not, he’s certainly not the only creature happy about the release of the side-scrolling action RTS thing. The announcement trailer contains quotes from people demanding the release, including a personal favourite: “I wanna it for PC”. Well now you’re gonna to get it for PC. Release should be within a month.
