We came across this game trailer for Jamestown described as a multi-player “neo-classical shooter” for up to four players created by Final Form Games. The game takes place on Mars during the 17th century. Apparently the red coats ( you know the British – King George, taxation without representation etc) have colonized Mars. We are not sure how the British got to Mars but hey sometimes you have to suspend reality when consuming downloadable games and entertainment. Final Form Games plans to release the game this summer.
