The StoryThe Smurglian race has come to Earth and they’re not leaving until they steal our four most prized commodities: metal music, the best coffee, cat videos, and all the WiFi. Challenge them through unique and innovative levels inspired by real-life areas in Pittsburgh, PA. Join Black Forge Coffeehouse baristas Nick and Ashley, two galaxy gladiators called to arms to stop this madness and remove the Smurglian threat from Earth. The Smurglians can have the cat videos… but if you don’t help our heroes fend off against the alien-assimilated elderly, bros, cowgirls, and country western singers, who knows what could happen!

Heroes & Villians

Nick Miller likes his metal and coffee both black. There’s nothing better than enjoying a good pun over a steaming cup of 7 Demon Blend in the Black Forge Coffee House, except defending his metal cafe from a wifi-stealing alien scourge.

Known for chart-topping hits like “Tractor Dump” and “Bury it in Your Swamp”, Skinny Chestknee is a country-western legend. He is also the figurehead for the Smurglian’s takeover of humanity. Yeehaw!
