Youngstown, OH (PRWEB) December 04, 2013

Black Streak Entertainment, known for their teen novels, comics and quirky gifts for kids and the young at heart, can now add another title to their growing portfolio; video game publisher. The youth entertainment company recently jumped on board with game developer "No Grapes Games" to collaborate on "This Just In!"

"This Just In!" is a 'bullethell' shooter/RPG hybrid stuffed with humor, action and adventure, and set in an alternate 1920's America full of flappers, packed with plucky reporters and plagued by the prohibition of alcohol. Take control of three high-flying gals as they battle their own personal demons as well as a literal invasion of demons from the underworld. "Fight the demons without and within. Then your adventure shall truly begin" or so they say! Who says that? Not sure. But one thing is for sure, and that is that these girls have spunk! Spunk in spades!

The core gameplay of "This Just In!" is 'bullethell' horizontal shooting action, but with a twist. First of all, the three playable characters will have unique characteristics, governing their power, movement speed and other things. But these characters will be fully customizable with different equipment, costumes, and customizable skill trees. You can view an early gameplay video here: http://youtu.be/K5VKAfGz4rw.

Black Streak Entertainment and No Grapes Games have launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.com to raise money for the project. Contributors can choose from a variety of rewards, including exclusive character costumes, the opportunity to design a character costume that will be made available in the game, and even the opportunity to create an item or weapon that will be included in the game. Access the campaign and contribute for rewards here: http://igg.me/at/thisjustingame.

"This Just In!" will be available for PC initially, with plans to release the title for mobile platforms. "This Just In!" is published by Black Streak Entertainment and developed by No Grapes Games.
