Hot fixes, cold fixes, and some general other bug fixes! Here’s a list of the latest tunes your hard drive will be singing:

1. Additional save game work. There’s not much to say here, you guys are so kind!

2. The soundtrack has grown! That’s right, it HAS grown (although the majority of you haven’t reached the level yet, so you won’t even realize this update was a thing.

3. More level pathfinding enhancements.

4. Added additional sassafras

5. Fixed an issue with Triceratracks

6. Added leaderboards display to main menu!

Thanks for all the kind reviews, and thanks for spreading the word!

“A must play for anyone looking for a new platformer.”
9/10 – Hooked Gamers

“I would certainly recommend this game. Its retro aesthetic and soundtrack will certainly entertain most.”
7.5/10 – We See In Pixels

“...look beneath the sugary-sweet retro veneer of Terrian Saga KR-17 and you'll observe the beating, savage heart of a brilliantly old-school platformer that'll provide hours of nostalgia-tinged entertainment...”
8.5/10 – Strategy Informer

About the Game

In Terrian Saga: KR-17 players take control of a misfit military drone as it gains sentience and grows a conscious after being activated for war. Players will use an assortment of upgradable weapons including a laser, grenades, and flame thrower along with their trusted friend and sidekick, an also sentient guided missile named J1M. Players must fight their way through hordes of varying enemy robots while exploring intricate levels to uncover their mysterious past and discover the true enemy.

Within the galaxy on the Carina arm live twin solar systems riddled with conflict: the Terrius system and his brother, the Cyrinus system. These two empires travel so closely together they share multiple planets within their gravitational complex. However, the Cyrians have become embroiled in an interplanetary conflict with the Glortac People’s Resistance. Terrius has begun building military installations in order to better help combat the threat of the GPR. One of these bases, built on the planet Valiant, has been sabotaged. A terrorist has released thousands of killer robots on the Valiant base, destroying all personnel. The Terrius military has determined that this terrorist may have contacts with the GPR. Due to the risk of one of their most powerful military installations and armory falling into the hands of the GPR, Terrius has sent a strike force of 100 advanced KR drones to destroy these evil robots and restore order to the base- all before Valiant makes it’s swing into the Cyrinus system.

Hah! This is a fun retro style platform game. I started having SEGA Genesis and Super Nintendo flashbacks! :O

This game rocks! It's fun! You scoot and dash around as a little robot, shoot and blast your way through enemies (you even get a user guided homing missile) and even fly around with a jetback.

One level I found the jetpack and just start flying non-stop up in the air... going and going... and I found coins! (or whatever they are) xD. Now I'm exploring everything. :D And the controls are awesome with the 360 controller.
The 16 Bit style characters, backgrounds and details look great and the 16-Bit chiptune music is awesome. It's not repetitive and mixes up really well.

If you like playing old school retro style shoot-em up platform games like back in the days of Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis and TurboGrafx-16, then you should get this game.
For the price it costs, it is more than worth it. :D

KR-17 is pretty obviously a retro-style platformer that harkens back to the good old days of the SNES. It plays very similarly to the 2D Duke Nukem Games or Megaman, but with some different twists. Really, if you like games from this genre, at $4- you can't really go wrong here. It won't knock your socks off, but it'll be a pretty good nostalgia trip.

Features:
* Gameplay is pretty generic, jumping shooting are standard faire.
* You have 4 extra attacks, plus a guided missile, largely for enemy destruction, but sometimes for puzzle solving. They're largely unecessary, but can be useful in certain cases. The guided rocket is a bit OP if you can manage to control it properly.
* The soundtrack is pretty solid, and while the songs can get repetitive, you won't be around a level long enough for it to get annoying.
* Most levels are pretty simple: the only goal is to reach the exit. Unfortunately, most levels require you to flip a bunch of switches, and it's pretty easy to miss one or two. Doesn't take much time to go back and find them, but its still a bit annoying.
* The controls are weird. Especially with the jetpack (you have to hold up on the right stick, and move horizontally with the left stick, otherwise you'll stop flying and probably die). Once you get used to that, it's pretty smooth.
* The enemies feel more like traps/obstacles than proper opponents, which isn't bad, but it does make them feel a little slapped down on the levels.

Also, here are our thoughts in video form!

Played through the first boss and a little bit more after. The game is somewhat charming, has a decent soundtrack, ok controls, and a few different attack types, plus a controlled companion rocket to blast enemies. While playing the game i was thinking it was going to be priced at 10 or 15 dollars, and so i thought it might be not worth it, but seeing as it's 5 dollars (and less with launch sale) I'm going to go ahead and say get it. It has a lot of levels to play through and objects to finish through them. But here's why i was think it wasn't worth it, for me atleast.
One is that the some of the boss fights (like the first one) is a sort of a race fight where you run from imminent death, dodging attacks and not falling, that's fine but the level wasn't a good design, so i found myself frustratingly dying because of it, and there isn't any check points durring these fights so you would restart it from the begging.
Another problem is one of the levels where you have to stand on a moving platform moving to the end of that level, you have to keep adjusting your movement on that platform so you won't fall (left and right arrow keys) and sometimes jump, now that's fine, but when the controls aren't as responsive as you need it to be, you will find yourselft not preforming these tasks the way you would expect, also when you double-hit left or right arrow keys fast you would dash in the direction you pressed them, and since you press them fast to keep your balance on the moving platform, you would accidentally dash away from the platform and die, and also there is not check point for those kinds of levels too.
So the gist of it is, some levels are badly designed, and controls aren't as tight as you want them to be. But make your choice, i was going to not recommend it but seeing as it's 5 dollars, i say get it why not, just remember that some levels will frustrate you.
I just hope the devs make a more tested, with more tight controls, and see things more clearly before they release their next platforming game if they ever make another one.

Addicted.
A fun hard-as-balls indie game that is not a Minecraft or a randomly procedurally generated rogue like MOBA thing.
Please make more games like this so I can scream at my computer

RETRO IN THE XTREME
i remeber the day of playing games like this at arcades and over friends houses spending way to much money or time.
controls are simple and basic and make me wish i had decent game pad just for this.
the story is simple and light-hearted with sracasm and humor to start.
dont bug me about graphics kids this one is what a REAL game is ,was, and will be .
