Mercenary Kings Is Now Out On Steam!
Enjoy yourselves a fantastic new trailer for Tribute's Mercenary Kings, an awesome mega collab between the studio and pixel-god-amongst-men Paul Robertson. The Kickstarted title is finally out on Steam, and offers a visual style similar to Metal Slug, sidescrolling gameplay with hints of Borderlands and over 100 missions to tackle solo or with a friend. The Borderlands comparison came from their deep crafting system, with countless parts and over 300 items to mix and match to create the best weapon possible.
We had a chance to play the beta extensively and had a blast, especially getting the chance to see Paul Robertson finally put his excellent sprite animation skills towards a videogame. If you've ever played retro Neo-Geo shmups, this title will be right up your alley. Mercenary Kings is currently on Steam for $15, get on it!
You are part of the Mercenary Kings, the most skilled team of warriors-for-hire on Earth, but when your comrades have fallen and the fearsome forces of CLAW have seized an island-wide top secret Laboratory Base, you must do what it takes to stop them.
But you're not going in unprepared! Your back-up is made of a crew of rogue geniuses and experts of their field! Able to craft & customize guns'n'blades or upgrading body armor, you've never been this ready to join the fight.
