Jamestown+ on Steam this fall!

Hi there!

If you're reading this, you're one of the hundreds of thousands of players who've enjoyed Jamestown's original release on Steam over the years. (2011 was a long time ago - especially in video game years.) You might also be one of the thousands who saw Jamestown+ come out on PS4 in 2015, and asked, "hey, can we have Jamestown+ stuff?"

Yes. Yes, you can.

We'll be re-releasing Jamestown this fall (2019) as Jamestown+: a standalone, all-inclusive package, complete with all of the game's new ships, new levels, and eight years of engine improvements and art refinements. We've got something special in store for current owners of Jamestown on Steam when Jamestown+ becomes available for purchase - we'll reveal more details as we're able. We're sure you'll be happy with the result.

In the meantime - if you want to keep up to date on the release or just chat about either version of Jamestown, come join us on our (very new) Discord server!

We're super stoked to finally be bringing all our hard work on Jamestown back to Steam - we hope you are, too!

About This Game

Jamestown: Legend Of The Lost Colony is a neo-classical top-down shooter for up to 4 players, set on 17th-century British Colonial Mars. It features all the intensity, depth, and lovingly handcrafted pixels of a classic arcade shooter, with a modern twist: deeply-integrated cooperative gameplay.
Unlike most top-down shooters, which give multiple players a shared pool of lives or continues, Jamestown does something different. So long as any player survives, the team can be brought back from death. By giving every player the power to rescue their team from the jaws of destruction, Jamestown creates an exhilarating cooperative experience where everyone’s contribution truly matters. Win or lose, your team will do it together.

Key features:

  • Blast your way through historic Mars as a crack team of up to 4 friends in local co-op mode
  • Marvel and rejoice at vast expanses of lovingly handcrafted pixels
  • Escape into a fast-paced story of swashbuckling redemption
  • Epic orchestral scores composed by Francisco Cerda, unique to each level
  • Brave the hostile Martian frontier with your pick of 1619’s finest steampunk weaponry
  • Master innovative co-op mechanics paired with classical top-down shooter gameplay
  • Test your skills against 20+ rule-bending bonus levels
  • Run the “Gauntlet” arcade mode, and play Jamestown like it’s 1996
  • Leverage the unique scoring system to claw your way up the online leaderboards
  • Unlock all 30+ Steam achievements... if you can!
