I love modern retro themed games and I was kindly asked by a Mr Nick Ridgway to highlight a forthcoming indie game called "The Dream King". This is another excellent project hopefully to be funded via Kickstarter.

Although Nick describes it as a  metroid-vania indie game, it does have all the elements of some of the finest run and gun games available. I am thinking a medievallymedievally Quartet or Gunstar Heroes, but it would probably best to let you read his own synopsis.

Hello! My name is Nick, and I am an independent game developer with a very ambitious project to share with you! It is a nostalgic retro styled "metroid-vania" indie game! http:/

It's a brand new indie game called "The Dream King", which features four player simultaneous cooperative and versus side scrolling game play! The game uses the same engine I used to create a very popular four player fan game called "Mega Man Perfect Harmony". It will very likely be released on multiple platforms including Ouya, Android, Iphone, and hopefully Steam! We are about to launch a Kickstarter Fundraiser later this month in order to receive funding. We are entering the final stages of this process and were hoping perhaps you would be so kind as to help spread the word about this game on your website via a post and a link. 

Thank you Nick for your hard work. All of us at flashback towers have our fingers crossed for you that you reach your target.

 Here are some links for more info on the project:
