Lisbon, 17 August - Tio Atum is officially announcing that GREEDY GUNS ,  their Kickstarter backed, run and gun metroidvania launching on September 1st on Steam (PC/MAC/LINUX), is adding Chinese, French and German translations to the two already available, English and Portuguese.

The small team of 3 developers is eager to share their latest creation, after 4 years in the making. They are looking to increase the number of languages, but so far only these five have been confirmed for launch day.

The ambition is to reach as many  gamers that, like the Tio Atum team, have a taste for retrogaming and classic gameplay. Tio Atum feels that localization is more than a nice-to-have, it is pivotal to bringing their creations to a loving worldwide audience.

Thankfully many  Kickstarter backers, fans, and friends have stepped forward to help with the localization effort, a veritable proof of the power of crowdsourcing and the good will indie developer can generate when they share their journey, both personal and has a team, with the world. More than any other feeling, it’s extreme gratitude that will accompany the release of GREEDY GUNS this September 1st.

GREEDY GUNS is an infusion of metroidvania with the hectic non-stop action of a run and gun, in the style of Gunstar Heroes, Contra or Metal Slug.

More than 500 Kickstarter backers joined forces to bring GREEDY GUNS to Steam and enjoy the arcady dual stick shooting apocalipse and bullet laden levels.

You play one of the two team member of GREEDY GUNS , a double of mercenaries hired by holocorp to land on alien planets in search of rare alien D.N.A. The Greedy Guns team is happy to work for HOLOCORP as long as they pay well. And do they ever. Too bad HOLOCORP also sell them their guns.


*Around 8 hours of gameplay

*Action packed world with secret weapons to find and unlock

*Local 2 player co-op

*Massive boss fights

*Unique blend of exploration and dual stick shooting
