JetGetters is funded! Woo! PAX East demo available for download
We are officially funded, woo!
Me & Luke are still in Boston waiting for our flights, Luke is flying to Seattle and I'm heading to Amsterdam, so we can plan out how we kick into full production with Tom.
We spent the weekend here at PAX East, showcasing the latest playable of JetGetters. I was super worried about the response, but after seeing 4 year olds pick up controllers and instantly have fun with the game, it was clear -- it's all worth it. The game is super fun, even in it's early stages of development.
Seeing that smile on people's faces when they eject out a jet and grapple onto another - that feeling is amazing. People get hooked and start messing around within the sandbox for 20 minutes.
I truly believe we have the controls nailed down right now. JetGetters feels great. So we'd like to share the PAX East demo with you. It is an early alpha with a sandbox. You can play local co-op with 2 Xbox 360 controllers.
