It's a smaller version of the game, I think?

Today we launched a huge collection of everything we've ever done - 14 years of games, soundtracks, prototypes, alphas, concept art, gifs, design sketches, etc. This includes but is not limited to Dino Run DX, Cheap Golf, Potatoman Seeks The Troof, Glorkian Warrior, Gamma Bros and a lot more...
Itch.io is the only place that will handle a collection like this (1800 files in various zips), and we're stoked to even be able to do something like this. I hope some of the devs here can appreciate getting a glimpse into our dozens of incomplete projects! :)
We just launched the full version of our game CHEAP GOLF yesterday:
It's a bizarre golf game hosted by an AI bot named SUSAN, who is very hungry for your FEELTHINKS.
Gameplay and graphics are Commodore / Atari styled, with some authentic 2600 / SID audio, remixed a bit with modern means.
There are 3 episodes now, with about 140 levels and 100+ simple cutscenes. More on the way!
There's even a level editor, but it's hidden in the game. SUSAN will reveal it if you ask nicely.
Thanks for reading!

Welcome to the devlog for NOVA DRIFT. But first, a link to the coming soon page and a trailer...
As the page says:
"Nova Drift distills the mechanical depth of an action RPG into classic arcade space combat. Your ship rapidly evolves as you defeat enemies, allowing you to shape its abilities and weaponry to your desires in a matter of minutes. Unlike many action-RPGs which can absorb hundreds of hours of time, Nova Drift allows you to take a ship build from inception to execution in a single game session. "
The game has been in development for over 4 years now by one-man dev team Jeffrey Nielson, aka Chimeric. These posts are by Pixeljam, the publisher, but we're also making the soundtrack for the game, so we are also on the dev team, right?
Anyway, we'd love to hear your thoughts on it so far. The game *looks* done but it still needs final sound effects, some new bosses, a little more balancing on the weapons & gear side, and of course general polish is just never ending...

We hope you enjoy checking it out, and we'll be posting more here soon as new updates are made.

Thanks! We added steam keys to Itch.io yesterday, so you should have one now - I think you go to your download page and then scroll down a bit and see "Get Steam Key" - let me know if it doesn't work.
