The title Everyday Shooter
isn't just special because it's a pretty good game, blending Geometry Wars-like gameplay with great music
. It's also the winner of numerous accolades from last year's Independent Games Festival
, and as of this week it will be headlining on the PlayStation Store
. "The $10 game may be coming into a market clogged with dual-analog shooters, but I don't think it will have a hard time fitting in. 'Some days I would spend all day tweaking a level, sleep for a few hours, and then go back and tweak some more,' Mak told me at E3. 'The challenges I faced in this game were creative, not technical.' The sense that someone slaved over this across many, many sleepless nights comes through pretty clearly. This is one to watch, and keep the name Jonathan Mak in your head. I doubt this will be the last thing we see from him."

, the game's sole creator, prior to the IGF last year.
