Sombrero: Spaghetti Western Mayhem is out now!
Sombrero: Spaghetti Western Mayhem is a fun local and online multiplayer shoot em up available on Steam right now. Created by New York City based indiegame developer PIXELMETAL also known as Nick Robalik. You can also call him Nick if you managed to easily get on his good side. We have been watching this game since we discovered it at Gameacon last year. It’s gotten better, fancier and added online multiplayer. Best of all it’s out today on Steam!
Regularly $14.99, it’s launching with a sale for $9.99!
This is a treat for us today because we know Nick. He is at all the events we go to and has always been a nice stand up guy who takes indiegame dev and the community seriously. A vocal supporter of quality gaming and a fun person to follow on twitter if you have an open mind and enjoy following someone who is not afraid to share his opinions. They can be unpopular opinions, they can be fiery, but he is always open to talk about them if you are. We might not agree on everything, but I do appreciate his willingness to talk things out. In the cold stale world of either PR talk or batshit crazy free speech, Nick’s twitter feed is authentic. That is rare to come.
I can honestly say he cares about this game. He listened to player feedback and improved his game after seeing how players reacted to it. You have no idea how many indiegame devs I met at events go in with blinders and headphones on and ignored the crowds. Nick pays attention and worked hard to make this game fun. I think he nailed it. Best of all he finished the game! Yet another rare thing to see happen! Way to many devs seem to just show off games for years with nothing to show for it. Nick has been hard at work making this happen. He finished it, its fun and you can buy it now!
