Outpost Bandit has been released

This game has been in progress for a number of months. This is mainly due to it being used to create teaching material on the wiki for the Orx Portable Game Engine. Also, it was used to help bring major improvements to the Orx Engine, namely gamepad controller support and Mac Retina support. Very pleased to finally release this.

Download for Windows or Mac OS X.

Again, thanks to all the attendees who stopped by to have a go and also to the many interested companies enquiring if they would be become commercially available. We're working on it. Read more about it here.
