Supercell's Gunshine Backed By Harrison


Nice headline, Rossignol, but what does it mean? That is what you are thinking, right? Well it means this: Supercell, who are a small Finnish dev team made up of Remedy and Digital Chocolate veterans, are making a browser-based MMO called Gunshine. It's the first project to be backed by Phil "He's Done Some Games Industry Stuff" Harrison's London Venture Partners. It also doesn't look half bad, as you can see from the trailer below. It's a four-player co-op in a cartoon cyberpunk world, with an apparently "endless" amount of quests. The model looks fairly standard (tank, damage, healer) so hopefully that will make for a smooth experience. Here's the interesting bit, however: "Asynchronous multiplayer mode - no friends online when you need them most? Not to worry, you can still borrow your friends' characters; the AI will emulate their playing style while you decide their overall tactics."

Intriguing. I'll find out some more about this soon. The game is apparently in a closed beta, so it might be worth signing up, which you have to do via the Facebook. (UPDATE: You do not have to have Facebook to play, but that's the interface for inviting friends, and it's in working Flash, which they apparently do not count as a plugin.)
