March to the Moon for sale!

Well, it's been a long wait, but March to the Moon is finally up for sale!  You can get it at March to the Moon's site or on XBox LIVE Indie Games.  We've already got a lengthy review from OtakuDante.  Definitely my favorite line in the review is "It's nothing short of brilliant."  Haha, I wish I could just take that out of context and pretend he was talking about the entire game :)  He was referring to the Skillset system, where you can match different skillsets to get a nice blend of abilities.  I wish I could take all the credit for it, but I did get the idea from Titan's Quest.  He also made mention of the simplistic graphics, "...even though this game features some of the simplest graphics I've seen in an indie game it still has enough features to make it noteworthy."  The mention on the graphics really hit home since he referred to the sewer stage as "a desert wasteland littered with dying fish".  Good thing I leveled up my graphics skills during and after that game.  My next solo game will look better, I promise!

Now, as an indie, it apparently is illegal to NOT talk about Steam's Greenlight right now.  I'm going to keep it short since I need to leave very soon.  Personally, I'm having a great time with it.  I've got three pages of games that I'm interested in getting (out of 26 total pages), so it's been a lot of fun to find new projects.  I was considering putting March to the Moon on there simply so I could get more people to look at it.  I seriously doubt that it would be able to get on Steam.  Then they put the $100 entry barrier to keep the riff-raff out.  Well, it worked.  I'm going to hold off on putting anything into Greenlight until Siphon Spirit is finished.  If we can't make $100 off Siphon Spirit then we've been doing something horribly horribly wrong.

I hope we haven't been doing anything horribly horribly wrong.
