Game: The Sun At Night
Platform: PC/Mac/Linux (DRM-free, Steam Greenlight)
Developer: Minicore Studios

Game Description:
The Sun at Night is a 2D action platformer in the same vein as Cave Story and Iji with some Metroid influences as well depicting an alternate history of Laika, the Soviet space dog.


- Massive, nonlinear levels that model the layouts of real locations in a way not yet seen in other platformers
- Large, choice-rich skill trees that let players approach the game the way they want to
- A novel defensive mechanic that lets players turn the firepower of Laika's enemies against them
- Smoothly flowing, fast-paced shooting action
- A story of struggle and hope, full of twists and revelations
- Rich, evocative art depicting a world dominated by a technologically ascendant Soviet empire
- Secrets and rewards hidden in every corner for the determined player

I was going to post this as some point. The concept seems utterly ridiculous (Laika, the soviet space dog, has returned to earth as a weaponized cyborg?), but something about it just really appeals to me.

Would be happy to see it here, although I suspect they won't be open to a PWYW sale for a while, given the game's price.
