You follow Goro, a village chief, as he seeks revenge through a variety of levels (Japanese temples, ocean beds, flying boats, and other inhospitable caverns).

The game has 9 levels with bosses that Goro has to overcome using his axes.

Run, grab hold, throw yourself forward, chop, use bombs, throw shurikens: anything goes in pursuit of your goal! Each time a level changes, the graphics and sound also change!

The difficulty draws inspiration from old-school games for scores and achieving perfection.
More experienced players can try to beat the developers' score... if they dare!

In summary:

  • Several ways to take the way of the Sensei: dive in or play with finesse!
  • A unique "Japan Steam Rock" universe with punch and tons of humor
  • Several different types of atmosphere and gameplay
  • An original graphic style, an exclusive OST
  • "Dev-Time" challenge for each level: beat the developers' time
  • Localized in 5 languages: French, English, Spanish, Italian, German

Dear early customers and "Build a Greenlight Bundle" backers,

First of all, thanks for your interest and support. Some of you expressed their concern about getting Steam keys; the game wasn't actually greenlit, it was published, which allowed us to offer you an upgraded & polished new version on Steam. This is why we hadn't prepared Steam keys on day one.

However, to show you our love for your support, we will provide Steam keys and give instructions on how to get them as soon they are available!

Thanks for your patience,
Neko and Upper Byte teams

edit: the keys are now available!
Please go to your Desura collection to redeem your key: Desura.com

They should. They were promised on the Groupees bundle. Supposedly the publisher (they apparently sidestepped Greenlight and took on a publisher) told someone they are open to it and he posted that reply on the Steam Community forum.

I'd suggest emailing contact@upperbyte.com and the publisher contact@e-neko.com about it. Also there is the Twitter site for Neko Entertainment Twitter.com
