Exit the Gungeon to Debut on Apple Arcade

Exit the Gungeon is a bullet hell dungeon climber immediately following the adventures of the misfit ‘Gungeoneers’ and their journey for personal absolution in Enter the Gungeon. The Gungeon has become a paradox and is collapsing! Armed with an ever-changing weapon, an insatiable need to loot, and the trusty dodge roll, each of our heroes must ascend and escape via their own unique route of increasingly perilous elevators. Battle against the last and most bitter of the Gundead at a frantic pace, slowing down just long enough to chat with some familiar faces… and a few new ones. Shifting rooms, enemies, bosses, bizarre weapons and items all combine to ensure that no two attempts to Exit the Gungeon are the same.

Also, you can wear hats. Everybody loves hats, and spin-offs, which this game is... of Enter the Gungeon. Exit the Gungeon is developed by Dodge Roll and Singlecore Games and will debut on Apple Arcade soon.

Heave Ho Flings onto Nintendo Switch and PC Today

Paris – Independent developer Le Cartel and tight-gripped game label Devolver Digital have launched the physics-based local multiplayer game Heave Ho on Nintendo Switch and PC. Heave Ho has been hailed as the leading contender for 2019’s LMPGOTY [Local Multiplayer Game of the Year] by nearly everyone, except for that one dude Leonard who – honestly – sucks at games anyway.

Heave Ho tasks up to four players with a simple goal – don’t fall to your death! Players will use their own two hands and the outstretched grip of their friends to grapple across each level on their way to victory. Grab one another’s hands, climb across dangling bodies, and swing your pals to safety in a wobbly, dangly mass of limbs. Customize your character with all manner of stylish accessories and zany accoutrement in a vain attempt to remember who you are and which of your hands is the only thing between you and the plummet of doom.

Heave Ho is playable at PAX West all weekend on a 20-foot 4K screen and at the launch party in Paris that, well, you weren’t invited to anyway. Awkward. Follow @LeCartelStudio on Twitter to catch the latest on Heave Ho and maybe make a friend along the way too.

Gladiatorial VR Sim 'GORN' Leaves the Shackles of Early Access

Blood, Dirt, and Nipples in Glorious VR

SOUTH AFRICA – Independent developer Free Lives (Broforce, Genital Jousting) and virtual game publisher Devolver Digital (also Broforce, Genital Jousting) have announced that VR sensation GORN has smashed out of Early Access and launched as GORN v1.0 on SteamVR and Oculus!

GORN is a ludicrously violent VR gladiator simulator featuring a unique, fully physics driven combat engine where combatants creatively execute their most violent colosseum fantasies in virtual reality. The acclaimed VR game entered Early Access in 2017 to high praise and huge success despite players propensity to smash screens and tear down light fixtures in the heat of battle. One player even dislocated their knee cap. Damage to personal property notwithstanding, GORN went on to become one of the top ten VR games in sales and one of the top three in user reviews on Steam during Early Access.

Free Lives spent the past two years adding in everything from new weapons and opponents to local cooperative modes and even a custom language within the GORN universe. That last one is a joke that frankly just got out of hand until they had a full language and a five-track hip-hop EP in said language. The final update in Early Access brings an ultimate showdown with a longtime nemesis, a new weapon, and more alongside SteamVR Index support and slew of fixes and tweaks.

“Our team couldn’t be more pleased to see the continuation of Free Lives’ unbelievable streak of turning weird ass ideas into commercially and critically successful games,” said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker.
