Update #15

Day 1 online!

Last month, we attended the annual IDGA DemoNight presented by OUYA here in Montreal where 14 developers, big or small, showed off their games in front of a crowd of roughly 500 people. (You can view a video on Vimeo http://vimeo.com/59032833 Mercenary Kings starts at the 45 minute mark)

Everyone seemed excited when our buddies jumped in for some co-op action. We couldn't agree more. Mercenary Kings really starts to shine when you can share the experience with some friends. That's why we started looking into bringing online multiplayer as a launch feature! You will be able to play the game with up to 3 other friends online via steam and offline when we launch towards the end of spring 2013. Here's your first behind the scenes look at it running in online multiplayer.

Also, we're very proud to announce that Tribute Games is officially a licensed Sony and Nintendo developer. We'll be able to bring our games to consoles!

Don't forget, we will be attending PAX East later this month. Drop by our booth to try the game out! We'll have new levels and missions to show off! While you're at it, might as well grab some awesome stickers we'll be handing out!

Surveys will be coming shortly to get additional backer info.

      Bring this to as many game consoles as possible! But I'll be honest. I'm going to play this on PC... or even buy an Ouya to play this. It's only 99 bucks - if they can attract great indie games like this consistently, it seems worth it!

      Awesome! Online play was probably the biggest feature I was hoping would make it from the later stretch goals. I was hugely disappointed when it didn't get that far and I was hoping it wouldn't end up like the Scott Pilgrim game getting online-multi as added DLC 2 years after the game came out.

      Looking very nice. I hope the levels get the same level of detail as the main camp btw. I simply love the detail level there.

      Hooray and congrats! I'll be super crossing my fingers for a Vita release, but I'd just as happily buy a PS3/PS4 version.
