I’ve been tracking this game for a few weeks after running across some #screenshotsaturday tags (follow @BlackseaOdyssey on twitter) and the concept looks promising. I’m not sure how I feel about the visuals, but I felt that was about Assault Android Cactus and that turned out great, so I’ll wait until I give the game a try before rushing to judgement.
