It'd be great if you were interested in featuring it on your site, perhaps for review. Mr Robot recently became A PC Format 2007 Game Awards Winner and has also recently received a very positive review at PC Gamer with a score of 82% http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?
Gameplay is at the forefront of all our efforts so a heady mix of retro styling, modern perspective
and actual fun *gasp* can make a refreshing change from some of the bigger budget titles crowding the market.
You can find all the information and downloads at www.moonpod.com, and if you like what you see
or need any further info, review copies of the game, interviews, a copy of the game as a competition prize etc. then please get in touch with me (Holly) on firstname.lastname@example.org
and I'll be happy to chat with you and to provide any assistance or additional info you might need.
Keep up the good work at Slashdot.
Best wishes — Holly Rupik (contact me on email@example.com)
