Joe Mirabello used to work in Triple-A games before he decided that having a steady income was over-rated. He founded Terrible Posture Games and released the Tower of Guns, a randomized "Lunch-Break" first-person shooter released in March 2014. Hopefully some day he'll get to make more games.

What a slick looking game--looks pretty polished visually from the screenshots and it seems you should have sold significantly more than 1.3k copies. Have you considered talking to other sites like IndieGameStand or various bundling-sites yet

Uh...they 're the guys who made Left 4 Dead. They 're only a new name to folks because they 'd been in and out from under Valve 's wing over the years, but I dunno if you could call them a new studio. If trade show booth investments are anything ...
