Rep South Philly: Vote for Ghost Crab Games in 'Groupees Build A Greenlight 5'

"Shop Local" is a phrase that has become popular in recent years. While it typically refers to locally grown produce or nearby small businesses or craftsmen, it can now be applied to the extremely popular video game market.

"Drive to Hell" goes head-to-head with seven other games in Steam's Greenlight 5

Enemies assault from all sides, each with it’s own special personality and attack style. To take them down, you’ll have access to many weapons and items as well as unique vehicles, special abilities and more!"
