After much teasing, the tactical stealth shooter Gunpoint has finally received a confirmed release date which is June 3rd, and the game is now open for pre-orders. Simply put, and according to the game’s Steam page, this is what the game involves:
Gunpoint is a stealth puzzle game that lets you rewire its levels to trick people. You play a freelance spy who takes jobs from his clients to break into high security buildings and steal sensitive data.
To get past security, you’ll need to make creative use of your main gadget: the Crosslink. It lets you see how all the security devices in a level are wired up, and then you can just click and drag with the mouse to wire them differently. So you can connect a lightswitch to a trapdoor, then flick it when a guard walks across to make him fall through.
Gunpoint comes in three packages, starting out with standard edition which is comprised of a DRM-free copy of Gunpoint and a Steam key for the game. The more specialised options are as follows:
Includes the game, soundtrack, and special in-game developer commentary for every mission (optional).
Includes the game, the soundtrack, in-game developer commentary, Making Of Gunpoint video feature, exclusive tracks by Gunpoint’s composers, and the Prototype Pack: 9 playable versions of the game from each stage of its development.
Gunpoint is a game we, at eGamer, are greatly looking forward to. It has all the makings of an amazing stealth shooter, something which the indie scene is sorely lacking at the moment.
Fleish And Cherry In Crazy Hotel is an isometric adventure game that takes great influence from 1930s black and white cartoons, combining that with gameplay inspiration from Zelda, Monkey Island, and the Professor Layton series. The developers are currently seeking funding through their indiegogo page. The story of the game is as follows:
During the golden era of Toonville, Fleish the Fox is the star of all the shorts recorded in this black and white cartoon world. His arch-nemesis, Mr Mintz, always tries to ruin his adventures by capturing his girlfriend Cherry, but despite his evil machinations, Fleish continuously manages to get his happy ending with her. But things are going to take an unexpected turn…
Fleish & Cherry in Crazy Hotel is a game set in the 30s, the sunset of the black and white era. The visual elements, the sound and especially the gameplay itself, will make the player feel like being another toon.
In terms of gameplay, Fleish & Cherry in Crazy Hotel promises to follow in the steps of traditional adventure games, with a few twists to keep everything fresh whilst you play. According to the developers, this is how the game will play:
Throughout the story, the player will have to tie up the information obtained on the world, its objects and characters. He must find the right combination of items and abilities to use depending on the situations that arise. You won’t only be transported to this cartoon universe, but you will also have to act and think like a toon in order to progress in the game.
With obvious ties to old school Disney, this game is indeed fresh and is far more interesting then many of the adventure games that dominate the indie scene at present. We cannot wait to see what happens with this game. If you want to support the game even further, do check out their Steam Greenlight page as well.
