Enter The Gungeon DLC canned in favour of new projects and one final update

Enter The Gungeon developers Dodge Roll have announced via Reddit that their plans to release a paid expansion to their popular bullet hell roguelike have been cut short. Instead, they're going to re-focus on producing one final update to polish up the game as much as they can before they go all-in on their next game. The devs say that just looking at their latest…

Feature: Welcome to the Gungeon, we've got puns and games

Has Enter the Gungeon been improved by its updates?

Enter the Gungeon’s new update overhauls the 2016 roguelike shooter, adding more movement options, smoothing out progression between its multi-room floors, and providing earlier access to better guns. It should, theoretically, make surviving the randomly generated Gungeon easier. Like (bullet) hell does it. In practice, it took me five hours of beating my guns against its unforgiving walls before I even saw the third of…

Enter The Gungeon reloads with Advanced Gungeons & Draguns update

New guns, enemies, minibosses, NPCs, room layouts and oh so much more--including the ability to slide over tables like a cool dude--arrived in Enter The Gungeon today with the launch of its long-awaited 'Advanced Gungeons & Draguns' free content update. My main grumble about the roguelikelike action-RPG dual-stick shooter wasn't that it needed more items but rather that so many of its items sucked, so…

Enter the Gungeon’s delayed expansion is out next week

Time to shoot bullets with bullets made of bullets again. Charming roguelike shooter Enter the Gungeon is getting a major expansion next week, for the always-nice price of free. Announced as "coming soon" in August 2017, it's safe to say this got delayed a tad, but according to developers Dodge Roll on Twitter, the Advanced Gungeons & Draguns expansion should be out next Thursday, July 19th.

Enter The Gungeon meets Payday 2 with crossover items

Last year's Enter The Gungeon [official site] was a rather pleasant surprise, offering a satisfying blend of bullet-dodging shmuppiness paired with a bit of Binding of Isaac-ish'roguelite' dungeon-crawling and looting. This week saw the release of a cross-promotion update between Gungeon and Payday 2 [official site], with both games gaining a generous handful of free extra gubbins. The funny thing: none of them are guns.

Feature: Cheap games for the weekend

Best PC gaming deals of the week

Another week has gone by and with it came the news of Destiny 2, a Witcher TV show and a whole stack of new gaming deals to check out. Conveniently enough, I’m here to take a closer look at that last thing and it’s about the only thing that’s keeping me from playing more Prey. Without further hesitation, let’s go ahead and check out what’s…

Enter The Gungeon’s huge Supply Drop update is live

Top-down action roguelike Enter the Gungeon [official site] contains more sentient bullets than any other game I've ever played. Published by Devolver, it thoroughly tickled John's fancy last year and I enjoyed what little time I spent with it as well. Just now, the first major update landed, adding almost 200 new rooms, along with new weapons, enemies, companions, bosses and shrines. One of the…

John’s Favourite Games Of 2016

One of my favourite things about end of year lists on RPS is they never match the personal list of any individual writer. They're a compromise between us all, an erratic, uncoordinated vote where consensus sees games of real worth rising to the top and filling our annual advent calendar. It makes for a list that's far more broad and useful to the largest number…

How Enter the Gungeon brought bullet hell to the dungeon-crawler

This is The Mechanic, where Alex Wiltshire invites developers to discuss the inner workings of their games. This time, Enter the Gungeon [official site]. Enter the Gungeon’s conception was an idle conversation about what shape a game called Enter the Gungeon would take. And here’s what it led to: 1. It’s a dungeon-crawler in which you shoot guns. 2. You’re entering the Gungeon to find…

The 10 most intriguing PC gaming trends of 2016

As December approaches like a runaway sled and we prepare to say our goodbyes to 2016, it's natural to reflect on the year as a whole. Those reflections could easily take the form of laments but we're keeping our focus firmly on the world of PC games, where we've identified ten trends that may not have defined 2016, but have certainly helped to shape it.…

Content Cannon: Enter The Gungeon Supply Drop Update

New weapons, items, enemies, bosses, and rooms are coming to Enter the Gungeon [official site] in a big ole update. Developers Dodge Roll Games today announced the 'Supply Drop Update', due to hit the roguelikelike shooter this autumn. Our John really liked Gungeon so good! This is good. Another free update is due to follow Supply Drop too, before a "full-blown" expansion arrives "early next…

The Bestest Best Games Of 2016 So Far

We usually do our enormous GAMES OF THE YEAR posting fest at the end of the year (as would seem logical) but because it seems silly to reserve praise for special occasions we're doing a Games Of The Half Year collection to tell you about everything we've loved playing so far. It can double as a summer holiday recommendations list too! We've listed ours in…

Enter The Gungeon Sets Sights On April Release

"I just picked up a gun that fires t-shirts," begins Steve Messner's recent hands-on with Enter the Gungeon [official site]. Now, from the footage I've come across so far, if ever there was a way to describe hyper-zany, ultra-chaotic, lightning-paced bullet-fest that is Dodge Roll's incoming roguelikelike shooter in just one sentence, then that is most likely it. Today, publisher Devolver Digital announced that we'll…

Feature: Lots of guns.

Enter The Gungeon Has Lots Of Excellent Weapons

I just picked up a gun that fires t-shirts. Even though it feels considerably less useful than my other weapon, which shoots ice cubes that bounce around and freeze enemies, I'm going to use it because the novelty of murdering enemies with high-velocity clothing is irresistible (RIP Maude). That sums up the silliness of Enter the Gungeon somewhat. It's a roguelike shmup which should be…

Adorable Enter the Gungeon Revealed To Have Co-Op

Look at those cutesy little bullets. Look at that bullet bishop. Has flaming, plasma death ever been so saccharine? (Don’t answer that.) In case you didn’t know, Enter the Gungeon [official site] is an upcoming shoot-everything-up from Dodge Roll Games and Devolver Digital, and it is more than likely already going to be badass. But such experiences are never complete without the company of your…

Enter The Gungeon: A Dungeon Crawler What Has Guns

Enter the Gungeon is developer Dodge Roll's love letter to the "many inventive and memorable guns of video games." It's further described as a radial shooter stuffed into a "dungeon-crawler lootfest," which is reason enough to open your mouth and prep a yawn. But there's enough fun character design and potential Vlambeer-y feels on display in the trailer that I'd ask you to stifle it…
