Gunpoint looks very good indeed, good enough to be nominated in the best design category at the IGF in fact. Its clever infiltration and security rewiring combine wonderfully with slapstick violence and trouser-propelled window-diving. Yes, it looks good, but how will it sound? Designer/wordsmith Tom Francis sent out a call for musical submissions and two new videos are here to pleasure your ears with the choices that have been made. Best listened to while in a dark bar with a haze of smoke around the ceiling and a shot of bourbon in your hand. If I were you, I’d probably think about the one that got away the whole while as well.
Don’t mind me. I’m just clicking my fingers over here in appreciation.
Last time I wrote about Gunpoint I mentioned that Tom was wondering whether people would be willing to pay for the game. Plenty of you started throwing money at your screens, which has been taken as an affirmative, so when the release occurs, which should be sometime in March, there will be a price attached, although there will also be a ‘substantial’ free version.
