Blood-drenched party platformer Samurai Gunn 2 blasts and cuts onto PC in 2019

Blink-and-you're-dead party platformer Samurai Gunn is getting a sequel, and this time there's a story mode to stab your way through either solo or with a friend.

Have You Played… Samurai Gunn?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.
