We last checked in on Mercenary Kings in June. It looked good then. With new screens and art (like the Bryan O'Malley-penned piece above), it's looking even better now.

Being worked on by a bunch of people responsible for the Scott Pilgrim game (and the delightful Wizorb), the developers for this PC-only side-scroller are giving people the chance to design in-game weapons and appear in the game as a Metal Slug-esque hostage.


All you've got to do is give them money.
