While it feels like They Bleed Pixelshas been in development for a considerable amount of time, the wait is over and looks to have been worth it for fans of challenging platformers. Spooky Squid Games released the title on Steam earlier today where it can be bought for $7.99 during this early promo pricing period.
It's not just a platform game, however, as you'll beat the crap out of enemies with your gross, elongated hands as well. I'm particularly interested in how the checkpoint system -- which lets you earn and place save points, or hold onto them for bonuses -- works out. The implications seem exciting, anyway.
