It’s no secret that, while many of our favorite game developers bring us fantastic games that we hold near and dear to our hearts, the bottom line is how much money these games can make them. So, it’s a breath of fresh air to find a developer like Jay Young, the one-man team of Mind Relay, who is going to be taking 100% of the profits for his 2D arena shooter, Tiny Robot Justice Squad, and donating them to charity.

Tiny Robot Justice Squad is a 2D shooter along the same vein as Smash TV and Contra. It is currently in development for PC, Mac and Linux. As the titular squad, players will fight hordes of evil, spiteful robots that wish to travel to the stars in order to take revenge on the humans that abandoned them on Earth. Players will take control of three different characters with unique abilities to fight enemies of all shapes and sizes. They can then harvest energy from defeated foes to upgrade their own weapons and abilities. Check out the trailer below:

The game is planned for a mid-2015 release. It is currently awaiting approval on Steam Greenlight, so head on over if you want to show your support. Or, if you’re feeling especially generous, you can visit the GamesAid, a charity that seeks to help disabled and disadvantaged kids, directly and make your donation now.
