SCHAR: Blue Shield Alliance is Now Available

Today I'm incredibly proud to announce that SCHAR: Blue Shield Alliance, a side project I've been working on for the better part of the past year, is now available to download on the Xbox Live Indie Games channel.  The game is a four player local co-op twin stick shooter with plenty of other elements mixed in like an RPG class system and dozens of upgrades to tweak how your ship handles and performs.  With 36 missions, 9 survival missions, and a free play mode there's tons of gameplay to keep you coming back for more.
