I am the developer of 20XX, the Megaman X-inspired game that won't make you cry like an anime fan on prom night. AMA!
Hi there! I'm Chris, the 20XX guy. In early 2013, I quit a safe cybersecurity job to make the Megaman game I wanted to play. (Mighty No. 9 ran its Kickstarter a few months later - that was a rough time, but things seem to be working out.)
20XX has been on Steam Early Access for over a year now, and we've steadily released game updates every two weeks since. With Mighty No. 9 having launched this week, I've seen us mentioned a good deal outside of our own sub (/r/20xxgame), so I thought it'd be fun to do an AMA.
So, AMA about 20XX, Megaman, indie development, or whatever else! I'll start answering questions around 2pm EST.
also, shameless steam plug.
edit 3 (11:34 am, 6/25): We posted this yesterday, but folks're still asking questions, and I'm still answering them! Fire away.
edit 2: (6:08 PM EST): Time for Dad-dinner! As long as questions keep rolling in, I'll continue to answer them as best I can, but longer answers will probably have to wait. I'll have my laptop with me later in case there are stragglers! If you have further questions/if reddit goes away forever, feel free to email (chris AT batterystaplegames DOT com) or hit me up on twitter (@batterystaple_g). Thanks for the awesome questions, guys! Had a great time.
edit 1 (2:30 PM EST): since it looks like this thing is picking up some steam, I'll state outright that I have to leave at 6PM EST! It's Dad's birthday. (That's 3.5 hours from now, but I like to warn early.)
