There's still a lot I can do to make it better (It's hardly functioning right now) and I do plan to roll out some patches but I'm going to keep that on the backburner for now. Still much to be done before I can focus on yet another full game, so this will have to do for now.
As well, a special thanks goes out to everyone who made art during the stream! You guys are the real MVPs!

While this is just a demo, the full game is almost complete. It's been almost a year since I started the project during the 2014 24 hour make-a-thon and am looking to wrap up in the next couple of months. Hopefully it will be worth the wait! You can let us know what you think on our forum!
Over last weekend from July 17-19, I was at Ai-Kon 2015 showing off some of S&S's games! All in all it went pretty well. People laughed, people cried, someone even DIED... maybe.

While nobody came close to last year's record of 121, held by Dennis Fehr, there were still some mighty strong competitors this year:
Hey friends, it's been a while! The Revenge of the Wasp Woman has released today. You can play it right now!
Basically it's an infinite shmup where you play as this wasp person who really hates robots. Survive wave after wave of increasing difficulty while earning money and purchasing upgrades. Once you inevitably fail, you can submit your score to the online leaderboard.
Version 1.4 of Mandew vs the Upside Down Machine is out today. This version adds a new tutorial stage that you can play before the main story mode if you're new to the series. It will show you the basics: What helps, what hurts and how to use the spring jump.
Also some bug fixes and other misc changes for an overall better Mandew experience.
Fixed some sounds being too loud.
Added SFX for swinging hammer.
Added star effect and special sound to Spring Jump to diferenciate it from a regular jump.
Added optional tutorial stage.
Fixed display issue in credits.
Fixed Moon not actually being invincible with invincible setting on.
Added additional checkpoint in 3-2
Emgee only has four HP now, instead of five.
Belial jumps before firing first set of projectiles.
