"Nuclear Throne is Vlambeers latest action roguelike-like about mutants fighting their way through a post-apocalyptic world. The radioactive waste in the world allows mutants to get ahead by mutating new limbs on the fly, the abundant availability of powerful weaponry make the quest to become ruler of the Wasteland one fraught with peril."

Many awesome new games have come to Steam Early Access lately and Vlambeers Nuclear Throne is no exception. Hot on the Indie Games obsession with rogue-likes, nuclear throne spins it up some into a post-apocalyptic mutant gun shoot fest paradise. Right now the game is only available on PC but they do have this to say about where it will eventually be ported to:

"Will the game be available on Mac, Linux, Xbox One, Wii U, Wii, 3DS?

All we know for sure is that the game will be available on PC and later for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. We should have no real trouble porting to Mac, but as always we're going to be cautious and not announce that fully in case it turns out there are problems with that. Since GameMaker 8.1 doesn't compile builds for most platforms, we won't know for sure until we try. We'll try when we're done with the PC builds.

Hotline Miami was a Game Maker game and it came to both Mac and Linux, so it is technically possible but I am not sure what the eventual will be for porting Nuclear Throne.

That all said, the game looks wicked shooter-iffic and like all the games on Steam Early Access on my radar, I am very interested to see how the game progresses. Because, you know, a game about mutants shooting stuff up? Yeah, that needs to be awesome.

This game is incredibly fun and addicting. I have played it for about an hour and let me say its one of the best indie games I've played in awhile. Since it's in early access as well, there will be even more content in the future which I am extremely excited about.

Awesome to hear this is a great game. Did you play keyboard and mouse or with a controller? I heard its a pretty controller focused game.

I played with mouse and keyboard and it worked perfectly fine for me. I don't own a controller for my PC so its my only option.

I will say that even if I had a controller I would still probably use my keyboard and mouse because I feel like the reaction times you need in this game are more satisfied with a mouse.

Makes sense, thanks BR. Can't wait to play this one myself!
