Dire Vengeance, co-created by my friend and jiu-jitsu training partner Karl Espiritu, along side Adam Seger, has recently been added to Kickstarter. I play-tested this game a while back, and even way back then I could feel the extreme promise that it has. As it is accurately described on the Kickstarter, "Dire Vengeance is a retro 2D action platform video game inspired by classics like Castlevania, Ninja Gaiden and Ghouls 'n Ghosts". A ton of hard work and dedication has gone into this project, and I'm hopeful it will get the backing it deserves.
