06/28/2013 - Gun Monkeys Launches on Steam
11:42 pm pdt
GUN MONKEYS, the unique
procedurally-generated multiplayer monkey deathmatch shooter from BAFTA-winning Size Five Games launches on Steam.
“Gun Monkeys is kind of an experiment into short, sharp jabs of intense
multiplayer combat. It’s a procedurally-generated, physics-based, 1-on-1, online platform shooter. All lovingly voiced
by British comedy legend, The Actor Kevin Eldon. There aren’t many games like that kicking around.”
delighted with how well the game has been received by the Beta testers – I don’t think any of them knew quite
what they were letting themselves in for, but they seem to have come away pleasantly surprised.”
declaring Gun Monkeys launched in an ultra-special “Gamma” phase of development: technically it’s Gold,
it works beautifully, but please don’t shout at me just yet if there are a few teething problems. Frankly, if the likes
of EA and Blizzard can’t launch an online game without any server hitches whatsoever, I stand no fucking chance,”
swore indie developer Dan Marshall, casually, in a press release, like it’s no big deal or anything.
MONKEYS, players take charge of a modern-day power company. In the distant future, a catastrophic experiment into Perpetual
Energy obliterates all human life, leaving the world choc-full of free-for-the-taking energy. Your job is to send a legion
of pleasingly-expendable monkeys forwards in time to collect Power Cubes and return them to present-day, all from the comfort
of your PC. Sadly, it looks like one or two other entrepreneurs have had the exact same idea...
GUN MONKEYS is
available on PC and Mac for just $10 (or two copies for $15) with a launch offer of 10% off! A Linux build will hopefully
