Nuclear Throne owners get an extra gift copy today

Happy New Year! If you bought into Vlambeer's Nuclear Throne early, you have an extra gift to give to one of your friends today.


Vlambeer's Nuclear Throne is entering 2015 as an Early Access title, but early adopters will now be able to get their friends in on the fun, too. The indie studio is giving those that have purchased the game early an additional copy to give to any of their friends.

Steam owners should see their free giftable copy of the game in their inventory, as previously indicated during the game's most recent update. Those that have purchased the game through the Humble Store or through Twitch will also find an extra copy in their inventory notifications.

"You've become really adept Nuclear Throne players, and we want to call upon you for your help," said Vlambeer co-founder Rami Ismail. "We need new players, people that are great players, that would love Nuclear Throne, and we need them to be part of our community. We're sure you know somebody like that, and if you do, we want to ask you to invite them to the Nuclear Throne community. We need fresh eyes on the game, people that will still get decimated by Big Bandit and that will complain about the ravens in the scrapyard. We need to know how they feel about Nuclear Throne, and we need your help to reach them."

Nuclear Throne is expected to release some time in 2015 on PC with a PS4 version also on the way. The game is currently available through Steam Early Access.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
