Is it game enough to fill the Gerudo Valley-sized gap in our collective souls? Can it quench the unquenchable heart that lies still, awaiting the return of Link in Breath of the Wild 2?

Indie game development is fast becoming big business. But it's by no means a new enterprise. Many, many small, independent developers have been running the blocks; selling their wares, lives and artistic license for years to make it into the big leagues, some of whom have done a more-than-decent-job.

Klei Entertainment is one such development studio who's managed to get their license and vision out to the rest of the world thanks to the EA Partners program with their side-scrolling beat-em-up affair, Shank. Today brings us to Shank, an obvious sequel that maintains the independent formula of the first game, but equally approaches issues players had, and with gusto.

Independent game developer Klei Entertainment has just announced that Shank 2 is now available on PC and the PlayStation Network as of today however Xbox 360 will be getting the game tomorrow.
Shank 2 drops players into a stunning pulp fiction world as Shank, an ex-mob hitman who is forced down the road to redemption after his village comes under brutal attack.

With precise and fluid controls, tons of new weapons, stronger enemies and the most advanced combo system of any 2D brawler, Shank 2 delivers a dynamic and evolved combat experience. Players have access to a diverse arsenal of guns, knives, chainsaws, baseball bats, and more as they move through Klei’s beautifully drawn environments that earned the indie studio IGF’s Excellence in Visual Arts nomination in 2010.
The Shank series is a great game for the small price tag, and is definitely packing a large punch or two.

You can grab the game now on Steam or Origin for PC and on the PlayStation Network for $9.99 on both platforms. The Xbox 360 version will be going for a cheap 800 Microsoft Points.
