Mothergunship expands with free story missions, enemies, ships and a new boss

I was looking for an excuse to return to roguelike FPS Mothergunship, and today's free "Namengineers" update looks like a fine reason, adding a little more of everything. When I reviewed it in July, I thought it was technically impressive but still a little under-baked, with too few environments, enemy types and an oft-frustrating economy. Looking at the patch notes for today's update, Grip Digital…

Feature: Boom and bust

Mothergunship review

Mothergunship is about big, stupid, hand-crafted guns and exploding robots. Successor to Terrible Posture Games' Tower of Guns and co-developed by Czech studio Grip Digital. It's a roguelike-ish "Bullet Hell" FPS about raiding procedurally generated alien spaceships, hoarding gun-barrels and bolting them onto your remarkably agile power armour.

I'd like to add to this, "Give 'em five guns stacked up and clicked together into one huge megagun, and they may well be playing Mothergunship." That's the next bullet hell first-person shooter from the creator of 2014's Tower Of Guns, and this time it'll have players build…

Tower of Guns dev announces Mothergunship

The creator of frenetic FPS Tower of Guns has announced a new procedurally-generated shoot-o-rama, Mothergunship [official site]. It'll bring more bullet hell action against hordes of enemies and honking great bosses, and this time you'll get to build your own guns too. Players will be able to craft megaweapons, snapping together bits from a huge selection which, I'm told, even includes a fish tank. Here,…
