Shhh: Secret Ponchos Is Coming To PC

Top-down multiplayer rootin' shootin'

Look at this Secret Ponchos screenshot: that poncho is anything but. There it sits, boldly in the open, flapping in the morning breeze. No, we're told, it's a secret. Fine, we'll pretend we don't see it if it makes developers Switchblade Monkeys feel better. In much the same way, we know from this tweet that the rootin' tootin' multiplayer shooter is clearly now coming to PC in addition to consoles but oh no, that hasn't been formally announced, so whatever could this cryptic image mean?

I hold a deep fondness for the American frontier, so Secret Ponchos is instantly interesting to me (I won't lie: I'm wondering if I can pull off the poncho-and-cowboy boots look this summer). It's a class-based affair with a lineup of rotgut-swillin', panatella-smokin', whip-crackin' desperados all shooting each other to pieces. It seems relatively tactical, with line-of-sight vision blocking and special abilities and perks and all that. But I'll probably play it regardless if the music's twangly enough because, as part of the problem, I'll go for anything catering to my aesthetic fancies (see also: cyberpunk).

Switchblade Monkeys are showing Secret Ponchos at PAX East this weekend so prepare your best "Oh gosh I had no idea!" face for the inevitable announcement of a PC release. Have a gander:
