    Hello,

    We are two ex-Blizzard employees working on our first game.
    http://www.awfullynicestudios.com

    If you would like to follow our Development process on FB or twitter you can do so here:

    We are excited to announce our first Title currently in progress:
    [​IMG]



    The Bug Butcher is a game about a one man pest control service required to use military grade weaponry to combat the diverse alien bugs that inhabit the galaxy. So basically, pest control with machine guns in space.

    More specifically, it is an action-packed 2D side scrolling shoot em up game inspired by the classic arcade shooter "Super Pang".

    You are Harry, a brash and tenacious exterminator who has a knack for decimating bugs. Harry’s current assignment takes him to an infested futuristic research facility where things have gone horribly wrong.

    We showed a small prototype at Gamescom and were super excited and humbled to recieve the Big Indie Pitch Award & GDC 2014:

    Here are a few first impressions:

    We are aiming for a release date somewhere in April on Steam, IOS and Android. We will keep this post updated as we go.

    The graphics looks pretty cool.
    The name of the game does not really do anything for me though.
    It seems a bit awkward.
