2D action game Mercenary Kings continues to look nice in the latest screenshots posted by developer Tribute Games in a Kickstarter update. As you'll recall, the title was successfully funded last year and managed to raise enough money for one of its stretch goals.
According to the studio, the game will be playable tonight at the IGDA DemoNight in Montreal as well as at the more publicly-accessible PAX East in March -- they're even going to have a booth.
My fingers are crossed that this project turns out well, both because there can never be enough of these games, and I'd love to see Tribute continue far into the future.
