It's 12-12 and the first cosmic thunder of the Starstorm's
galactic fury is upon us! The current early access to the DLC
delivers the new character Ted McPain, and a host of customization
Ted McPain is also accompanied by two Premium skins: On one
hand, there's Titanium Ted - easily the manliest of all the
Awesomenauts. He's buff, he's tough, and he's wearing pants for a
change. On the other hand, there's Party Boy McPain - confident,
charming, always in for a good time, and almost wearing less that
"no pants"! And as all 80's heroes, Ted also comes with an awesome
new theme song! Treat your ears to Sonic Picnic's nostalgic
masterpiece right here:

Starstorm is the first official expansion for Ronimo's 2012
arena game Awesomenauts. Its production was successfully
crowdfunded on Kickstarter.com in September 2013. The resulting DLC
will see a multistage release to make sure players will get their
hands on individual elements as soon as possible. The expansion is
expected to be complete by the end of 2014, and will contain 5 new
characters, 1 new map, a full featured spectator mode, a replay
system, a match customization suite and a custom games browser.
Awesomenauts is a online arena game that has two teams of 3
players facing off in battle. The game plays as a classic 2D
platformer, but contains all the modern trappings of the genre.
Such as a diverse cast of classes, an extensive upgrade system and
powerful turrets and creeps. Awesomenauts is avaiable on Xbox 360,
PlayStation 3 and PC. It's also coming to PlayStation 4 soon.
