Fourteen months have passed since development began on Vigilantes, and there's some good news: an alpha version will be made available within the next 6 weeks. The alpha will be free, available through indie DB, and will contain a handful of levels from the game. This will allow you to be among the first to try an exciting new game for free, while feedback will be very useful to me in tuning Vigilantes.
For now, here's a video bringing you from the splash screen, through the main menu, and all the way to an encounter between Sam Contino, the protagonist, and a group of street thugs. Comments, questions and criticism are welcome!
