Happy Holidays

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to wish everyone a happy holidays. This is my first winter holiday period with a released game so it has been very interesting for me personally. I would like to thank everyone that has checked and tried out the game. I really appreciate it.

As part of the Steam Winter Sale 2017, By Any Means Necessary is 50% of it's regular price, so hopefully everyone can take advantage of this sale.

In the next day or so I would like to let everyone know what plans I have for the game to give all the current and potential owners as much value as possible, so be on the lookout for that.

Thanks again everyone,

Official Release

Hello everyone,

By Any Means Necessary is now officially released and I would like to thank everyone for their interest in the game.

I started working on By Any Means Necessary in 2010. Development stopped in 2011 when I moved to the United States from the Dominican Republic. Then in 2013, I started working again on the game until now.

I would like to thank everyone that worked on the game: Rocio Martinez, Samuel "Cem" Kodoktua, Wilson Tjandra, Josiah Tobin and Brian Fairbanks. Thanks to all the testers and special thanks to Alan Javier Sánchez, Francisco Guerrero and "Flytrap" for testing and helping improve the final product.

I hope everyone enjoys the game and I would appreciate any and all feedback.

Captain Yusef Athros, from the Sylon empire, has been exploring the Castian Sea, and has just received an order to head to Lavinan Island. What will captain Yusef find in this island?
