Enter the Gungeon

PAX Prime 2015 | Enter the Gungeon

Dodge Roll and Devolver Digital have teamed up to bring us the frantic, mad cap antics of Enter the Gungeon today on PC and PS4. You can join your fellow Gungeoneers and blow everything to smithereens in this crazy, time travelling dungeon crawler. Boasting 2 player co-op madness and a ton of unique weapons, nearly 400 different “guns”, as well as procedurally generated levels, Enter The Gungeon looks to hook players for a very long time to come. But wait, it gets crazier, as the enemies and bosses that you’ll face are truly strange. I think it was put best when it was said that “If shooting bullets at bullets that are shooting bullets back at you doesn’t get your pants tight then I’m not sure what to say,” by Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker. Enter the Gungeon is truly a great and super challenging new game in the twin stick shooter landscape, and I’m sure it will make many twitchy players happy. To find out more about this frantic game, look at the trailer below. It’s normally $14.99, but is on sale until April 12th on Steam.


Epic bullet hell dungeon crawler on PC and PlayStation 4 today

The Procedural Labyrinth – The Gungeon masters at developer Dodge Roll and their co-op buddies at publisher Devolver Digital are locked and loaded for the release of Enter The Gungeon today on PC and PlayStation 4 (£10.99), allowing budding Gungeoneers to take up arms and unleash an unimaginable barrage of firepower upon the cult of the Gundead.

Enter the Gungeon is a gunfight dungeon crawler following a band of regretful misfits seeking to shoot, loot, dodge roll and table-flip their way to personal absolution by reaching the legendary Gungeon’s ultimate treasure: the gun that can kill the past. Featuring two-player co-op and nearly 400 unique guns and relics, Enter the Gungeon sports intricately detailed handcrafted rooms laid out in procedurally generated labyrinths to keep even the most seasoned Gungeoneer on their toes.

“If shooting bullets at bullets that are shooting bullets back at you doesn’t get your pants tight then I’m not sure what to say,” noted Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker.

Select a hero and battle your way to the bottom of the Gungeon by surviving a challenging and evolving series of floors filled with the dangerously adorable Gundead and fearsome bosses sometimes literally armed to the teeth. Gather precious loot, discover hidden secrets, and chat with opportunistic merchants to purchase powerful items and gain an edge.
