Big Fat Alien's BEEP Looks Simply Fantastic

Developer Big Fat Alien is about as independent as you could be; founded by former BioWare employee Kiaran Ritchie, the dev just came out with their first game, BEEP, and while it definitely looks like a product of a small dev crew, it nonetheless looks like mad fun. The emphasis is less on graphics and more on gameplay, as the backgrounds and art are simplistic and functional, almost to a fault. Still, the 2D shooter-platformer looks like a crazy amount of fun. Hit the jump for a gameplay trailer for the proof.

The best part is BEEP’s only $9.99 on Steam. I’ve heard good things about the game so far, so I’m most definitely going to check it out. That means you should as well.
