I’m not a big shmup fan, but Final Form Games’ Jamestown: Legend of the Lost Colony broke down my barriers. With it’s unique setting (17th Century Mars?!) memorable sprite-based artwork, and killer gameplay it became my favorite shmup.
Well, now I have a reason to play it again. Final Form Games have released the Gunpowder, Treason, and Plot DLC today! Hit the jump for more details.
According to the game’s official website, the DLC focuses on the Gunpowder Plot, but with a sci-fi, steampunk twist. Instead of being sentenced to death, the conspirators are sent on a suicide mission to Mars to destroy a Spanish munitions factory.
The best part about this whole package: new ships or Conveyances as the game calls them. According to the site, there are at least four new ones, each with their own abilities, strengths, and weaknesses. Personally I think either Gunpowder or Plot would be my favorite.
Gunpowder, Treason, and Plot is available on Steam for just $2.00. Or you can buy the Deluxe Edition of the game which comes with the original game, DLC, and the official soundtrack for just a little over $10. The soundtrack features extended and remastered editions of some of the game’s songs. Considering how highly we thought of Jamestown in the first place, you’d be a fool to pass this up.
