Alphaman

20XX Will Never Run Out of Its Need for Robotic Heroes

SHREVEPORT, LA., Nov. 19Th, 2019—New indie game Alphaman from Heartfelt Games LLC is releasing today at 12PM EST on Steam and itch.io.

In 20XX, android AI now has the capacity to serve humanity by replacing dangerous, servantile, and repetitive jobs. The world is at peace, until a group of underground hackers known as the Red Bombers release a berserker virus into the general population of Personal Androids including user modified models intended for arena battles.

It's up to Alpha, the first android designed with the sole purpose of fighting, to stop these infected bots and take down the Red Bombers!

You will control Alpha through seven handcrafted stages (plus a final boss stage), acquiring boss weapons and upgrades along the way! Along the way, the cute operator will provide intel before each mission allowing some back story to each stage. Action-only fans need not worry though, every dialog in the game is skip-able.

Alphaman is a nostalgic trip down retro lane with 8-bit inspired graphics, but a 16-bit era control scheme allowing for not just running, jumping, and shooting, but also dashing and wall climbing!

Fight through Chefbot's stage in a medieval castle covered in cake frosting, journey through Usherbot's spooky cathedral, climb through Maidbot's love hotel, and douse Firebot's flames in the city's sewers and skyscrapers in order to find the location of the Red Bomber's secret hideout!

Alphaman will be release at a mere $5 USD (with a 10% discount on launch) on both Steam and itch.io. Alphaman will be available on Windows through Steam, with Linux support initially only on itch.io.

Heartfelt Games LLC is an independent developer of desktop computer games located in Shreveport, Louisiana. When It Hits the Fan is the first of hopefully many titles to come since founding in 2015. We can be visited at www.heartfeltgames.org.
