Mommy's Best Games brings XBLIG hits to Steam

Weapon of Choice! Explosionade! Shoot 1UP! Game Type!

Nathan Fouts' one man studio Mommy's Best Games made quite a name for itself a few years back by bringing uncharacteristically high quality games to XBLIG. Such titles included: Weapon of Choice, Explosionade, Shoot 1UP and Game Type.

Weapon of Choice.

As of today, Fouts has released those four aforementioned titles on Steam under the Mommy's Best Action Pack, priced at £5.59 / €7.99 / $7.99.

You can also buy each title separately for £1.99 / €2.99 / $2.99, except for Weapon of Choice, which is £3.99 / €4.99 / $4.99.

For those who missed out on Mommy's Best Games' heyday, here's the rundown:

Weapon of Choice is a side-scrolling platformer/shooter very much in the vein of Contra; Shoot 1UP is a Treasure-like shmup where you control multiple ships simultaneously; Explosionade is more along the lines of Super Crate Box meets Serious Sam; and Game Type was a satirical title mocking the Xbox 360's ridiculous dashboard redesign making it bewilderingly difficult to find self-published XBLIG games.

Mommy's Best Games is probably most known for Serious Sam Double D XXL, which is not included in this Pack as it's been on Steam for years.
