Just a quick update to share some awesome news!!! Age of Grit has been Greenlit on Steam!!! Yeeeehaw!!!
Thank you all for making this happen! We are so excited over here–this is an enormous step forward for the ultimate success of Age of Grit! Naturally, we will continue to pursue other means of distribution–such as the Humble Store and GOG.com. But Steam has by far the biggest marketplace for games, so this will really help Age of Grit reach a large audience upon release. Again, thank all of you for supporting us and making this happen!
It’s over! We did it guys! Congratulations–because of each of you Age of Grit is now going to be made! We are so extremely grateful for each and every one of you for believing in this game! Thank you thank you thank you for EVERYTHING!
Age of Grit is now LIVE on Kickstarter! You play the captain of a steampunk airship adventuring across a cowboy inspired fantasy world! AOG is a strategic RPG with a heavy emphasis on meaningful dialog and rich story. The game features fully upgradeable ship components, a novel combat system, and a crew you can level up via detailed progression elements. The ship’s crew are smugglers running various jobs just to scrape by–kind of think Firefly but with Wild West towns instead of planets and a steampunk airship rather than a spaceship.
A little peak at the Age of Grit original soundtrack–composed by the venerable video game musician BeatScribes.
In a few weeks we’re going to launch a Kickstarter campaign for the game we are currently working on: “Age of Grit.” When it’s done it’ll be released on PC, Mac, and iOS. The game is currently in the very early stages of development. Right now we have some concept artwork, a few of the in game graphics, and some of the basic programming work done–but we’ve got a long long way to go. You can check out some of the early concept art below.
Could this be the end of the age of Call of Duty???

After over two decades of frantic searching, I have finally uncovered the epic back story to Super Mario World!!! It has everything! Vacations, awesome Luigi exclamations, slow nods, a beautiful cape, “starry” treasures–what more could you ask for! Also, we learn that Princess Toadstool and Mario are apparently just “friends.” I always thought they were married or at least dating or something. I’ve been such a fool. Oh, and most shocking of all: Bowser is a member of the KKK.
As a public service to the world, I have included this incredible tale below. Gather round for the greatest story ever told…
After saving the Mushroom Kingdom from Bowser and the rest of the Koopas in Super Mario 3, Mario and Luigi needed to recuperate from their adventures. Together they agreed that the best place to vacation was a magical place called Dinosaur Land.
But while Mario and Luigi reclined on the beach for a relaxing nap, Princess Toadstool disappeared, apparently seized by evil forces. After searching for hours for their missing friend, Mario and Luigi came upon an enormous egg in the forest.
Suddenly the egg hatched, and out popped a young dinosaur named YOSHI, who proceeded to tell Mario and Luigi a sad tale of how his dinosaur pals were sealed in similar eggs by a group of monstrous turtles.
“Monstrous turtles!” exclaimed Luigi. “Bowser and his bunch have returned!” Mario slowly nodded his head in agreement and, along with Luigi and Yoshi, set off across Dinosaur Land to find the Princess and to free Yoshi’s friends. As they began their journey, Yoshi handed Mario a beautiful cape. “This may help you,” Yoshi said. “Some say it has magical powers.”
With a little luck (and help from a magic cape), our hearty crew can defeat the seven worlds of Bowser’s Krazy Koopa Kritters. Many locations are well-hidden to be explored to rescue the dinosaurs and save Princess Toadstool, but there are many “starry” treasures to be found in far-reaching places. You’ll need to search all areas to find out what kinds of treasures are there… in Super Mario World.
