Our buddies in the British Isles seem to get the shaft sometimes as far as gaming goes (who knows when they'll get Brawl
) but Meridian4 is trying to alleviate some of that pain. They'll be publishing Shadowgrounds Survivor
in the UK come May, a game that's pretty popular here in the States. Hopefully the Brits will enjoy this space shmup as much as us yanks over here in the colonies.

About Shadowgrounds Survivor
In Shadowgrounds Survivor, gamers are dropped on Jupiter’s Ganymede moon as one of three surviving humans in the midst of an all-out alien onslaught. It’s up to them to take up arms and blast through legions of alien scum to save their own lives and humanity itself, increasing their skills and weapons through the game’s RPG-like character-upgrade system. The mighty Mech and devastating Sentry Gun will help players mow through hundreds of bloodthirsty extraterrestrials in the campaign or the all-new Survivor mode.
