Fans Spent Six Years Making This Mega Man Game

Fans Spent Six Years Making This Mega Man GameMega Man fans aren’t just hardcore (Mega Man 3 FOR THE WIN), we are quite the dedicated bunch. What’s that? You want me to give you an example as to WHY?  Well, how about this awesome fan game that two (count ’em, TWO) people have been working on since 2008.  The game is called Mega Man: Revenge of the Fallen (and I know what you’re thinking; it’s NOT a Transformers reference).

The “Los Almendros” Social Center, designed by Ferrer Arquitectos, features a covered public square, and it was one of the early ideas behind the building’s design that found its way into the final product. The centre’s site is in an elevated and privileged area in one of the routes into Almería, Spain.
