Gunbrella, a game in which you use a, might already be shown below. This past week, it''s a 2D "noir-punk" action game with Mary Poppins and stinging like, I dunno, a shotgun. The announcement trailer is now available.
From the colourful pixel art to what I''m hoping is a train structure, there''s plenty more to like in this trailer, but I''m hoping it''s a train structure. However, the real star is the umbrella, which is your weapon, your shield, allows you to hover, and might even support a double jump or short-term jetpack move.
According to the game''s Steam page, Gunbrella features you as a "gruff woodsman on a quest for revenge." You''ll be battling "ghouls and gangsters, cops, and cutlists," and the effects of corporate exploitation." As part of your adventure, you''ll also be managing ammo and upgrades, and interrogating characters for information.
Developers Doinksoft was previously responsible for Gato Roboto, which was also published by Devolver, and it was a two-colour metroidvania about a cat in a mech suit. Dave Irwin liked it but found it too brief and slight in his review. Gunbrella feels like a larger-scale game, though we''ll have to wait until 2023 to see the truth.
