Kot-in-Action Creative Artel is proud to announce that we have had over 50,000 downloads of our first Episode for our episodic top-down shooter series Steel Storm, and that the beta for Steel Storm Episode 2 is now available to pre-ordering customers. Episode I, which is free, is also still freely available for Windows, Mac, and Linux, and is included in Episode 2’s beta.
Steel Storm is an old school top down arcade shooter with score oriented competitive gameplay, and is designed for people who like fast paced action and have limited amounts of time to play computer games.
The events of the game take place in an alternative universe where you control an advanced hovertank, packed with the most advanced and sophisticated weapons. Your task is simple, but, nevertheless, is not trivial. In the fight with presumed extraterrestrial invaders, you must prevail! Features in the Episode 2 beta include:
• Complete Episode I
• 2 new environments
• 3 new single-player / coop missions
• CTF online mode
• New weapons
• New enemies
• Gamepad support
Kot-in-Action invites all old-school shmup fans to register on our forums and join our official IRC channel and coordinate multiplayer games and comment on the singleplayer mode. Preorders are available now for the second episode and those who preorder will receive beta access.
Downloads for all 3 platforms, screenshots, video, and further description can be found at http://www.steel-storm.com .
Additionally, Kot-in-Action founder Alexander Zubov said, “We would like to thank our dedicated audience for getting us into the Top 100 of IndieDb’s Indie of the Year 2010 competition, for Episode 1. We want to thank everyone who voted for us and hope you will vote for Steel Storm Episode I once again, for the Top 10 competition. We also thank our audience for over 50,000 downloads of Episode 1!”
