Rochard is now available in Steam!!
Amazing, award-winning side-scroller, that I've played a lot recently. I personally love this kind of games a lot, since they offer a very different, yet fun, experience from my standard games (Fallout, Skyrim..etc.. you know).
Soundtrack by Markus "Captain" Kaarlonen and Poets of the Fall, one of my favorites (as you might remember from my Fallout 3 videos). Markus "Captain" Kaarlonen is a Finnish musician/songwriter/producer, and the keyboardist of the Poets of the Fall.
Highly recommended by me!!
