Guacamelee! is a Metroid-vania style action-platformer set in a magical Mexican inspired world.

The game draws its inspiration from traditional Mexican culture and folklore, and features many interesting and unique characters. Guacamelee builds upon the classic open-world Metroid-vania style of games, by adding a strong melee combat component, a new dimension switching mechanic, and cooperative same-screen multiplayer for the entire story. The game also blurs the boundaries between combat and platforming by making many of the moves useful and necessary for both of these.

The game features a down on his luck Mexican named Juan Aguacate, who sets out to save the world when El Presidente’s Daughter is kidnapped by an Evil Charro Skeleton. The story takes place in and around a small village in Mexico, and has the player travelling through alternate dimensions: “The World of the Living” and “The World of the Dead” on his quest to rescue the girl he loves.

I can't imagine them putting this in a $1/PWYW sale. But if they did I'd be on it like, well, like me on Guacamelee.

It might work but I'd expect Blobs on PWYW and melee on BTA at best.

(Mexico is a bit special though so may just change my vote to that :twisted: )
