Monkey See, Monkey Post: Gun Monkeys Out Now

Oh, he just had to release this just as the RPS Hivemind was about to slump into its weekend-long coma, didn't he? The punishment for that is a shorter post free from our usual witticisms. Actually, no, I'm going to twist the knife and say 'bum monkeys more like'.

I don't know if Gun Monkeys is fun or bum in fact, as I haven't yet had the opportunity to play it - it was at Rezzed, but I was dashing about like a monkey with its bum on fire so I didn't get the chance. The people who did seemed to be having a good time however, but maybe that's just because they enjoying harming monkeys. Anyway, this "procedurally–Generated, physics-based, online deathmatch platform game", starring murderous simians and the voice of the actor Kevin Eldon, comes from the studio behind Time Gentlemen, Please, Privates and the upcoming The Swindle, so it bears investigation, I'd say.

Here's a video of some random dudes who won't be expecting to find themselves here playing it. Future monkeys, attack!

It's out on Steam now, with a discount if you buy a twin-pack for you and a friend.
