Reviews

"Every aspect of its clever design, laugh-out-loud noir story, tiny but expressive art, and moody music work harmoniously with one another."
9.0 - IGN

"The joy of Gunpoint comes from the clever ways you can make all the obstacles work to your advantage."
9.5 - Destructoid

"Gunpoint is a bracing reminder of how lovely simplicity, when exquisitely executed, can be."

Steam Exclusive Offer

Purchase Gunpoint from Steam and receive an exclusive Team Fortress 2 item:
The Crosslinker's Coil
Did you know: before the mercenary fashion world discovered the obvious style and mental health benefits of wearing 22 feet of powered electrical cable around your head, people once wore hatbands made from 'silk' or other barely-lethal textiles! Strange but true.

Special Edition

The Special Edition of Gunpoint includes:

  • The Soundtrack: Includes all of the game's noir-inspired spy music in high quality MP3 format.
  • Developer Commentary: When enabled, you'll find little sprites of Gunpoint's developers on every mission. Talk to us to hear a little about our thinking behind the design (Tom), the art (John), and the music (Ryan).
Caution: shooting a developer while he's talking ends his current commentary track. This kills the developer.

Exclusive Edition

The Exclusive Edition includes all of the items in the Special Edition plus:

  • The Making Of Gunpoint: a 40-minute video feature taking you through how Gunpoint developed from a one-room test game to what you play today. Featuring Gunpoint's designer playing his earliest prototypes for the first time since they were made, to great personal embarrassment and shame.
  • The Prototype Pack (Windows only): Play snapshots of Gunpoint's development at 9 different stages, including cartoony programmer art, the first conception of the hacking system, many scrapped levels, and overpowered gadgets we later cut. For hopefully obvious reasons, we can't give technical support for these.
  • Exclusive Tracks: Bonus pieces produced specially by Gunpoint's composers for this edition, mixing the game's noir style with electronic influences. Since they're not used as background music in the game, our composers took the chance to be more adventurous with these tracks.
  • The Secret Beta Access List (betas may be Windows only): adds an option in the game menu to sign up to our Secret Beta Access List. If and when future Suspicious Developments games are developed, we'll sometimes give secret beta versions only to the members of this list.

About This Game

Gunpoint is a stealth puzzle game that lets you rewire its levels to trick people. You play a freelance spy who takes jobs from his clients to break into high security buildings and steal sensitive data.

To get past security, you'll need to make creative use of your main gadget: the Crosslink. It lets you see how all the security devices in a level are wired up, and then you can just click and drag with the mouse to wire them differently. So you can connect a lightswitch to a trapdoor, then flick it when a guard walks across to make him fall through.

Key Features

  • Rewire levels to work however you want
  • Trick guards into trapping themselves or shooting each other
  • Throw yourself - and others - through plate glass windows
  • Investigate a noir-inspired story of murder and espionage over 20 missions
  • Choose what to tell your clients, including lying to trick them
  • Choose your own playstyle: quick, quiet, non-violent, no living witnesses, or any combination
  • Discover new solutions to levels that no-one else has thought of
  • Buy specialist gadgets to suit how you want to play
  • All story stuff is skippable
  • Hardest puzzles are optional
  • No bosses - everyone dies in one shot, including you

A Most Excellent Game:
I bought Gunpoint during the Summer Sale and I loved it. I had a hard time putting it down, I buzzed through it the story in 6 hours ( however the game is workshop compatiable so theres always new maps being made). I love the visuals, the music, the witty dialogue and the clever gameplay. After each level your given a rating on your level of violence, stealth, time, and completion of side objectives. It's incrediby rewarding to try and be as sneaky as possible.

I love the noir feel of the game. The developer really nailed it. I love the jazzy soundtrack and the trenchcoat toting protagonist.

10/10 Would knock-out guards with door again.

Long, long ago I pirated Gunpoint. I played the game, beat it, loved it, and a long while later I finally had the money to purchase it. Gunpoint is worth every penny. I just finished playing it, again, and it's still as good as it was when I first played it. Maybe better. To the developer, I'm sorry for pirating your game. It was years back, when I thought differently about this sort of thing-- though that doesn't excuse me. Thank you for making such a wonderful piece of art, and I'll make sure to get your next game, which can be found at http://www.heatsig.com/ if anyone's curious, through the proper channels. Good luck!

I love how the story goes smoothly and the main character (YOU) has some ironic replies to pretty much any conversation.
"I hate this job."
"I love this job."
I love this game.

Over-all good game.
Although only took me 2 hours to complete story.
Steam workshop compatibility means that it basically has infinite play value.
Also achievment hunting is fun

DISCLAIMER: I do not play many puzzel games so i cant compare to other games.

Ok let me officailly start the review by saying this game is ♥♥♥♥ING AMAZING
The game is only a couple hours long but its extremly engaging, my only real complant is that there wasnt more to play.
I did get this on sale for 5$ and i reccomend you do the same, this game is so fun for any gamer, even if you never play puzzel games like me. The story is ok and it gets more interesting at the end but in the great words of someone who review Just Cause 3: "Its like porn you see... You come expecting a story but it dosnt matter in the end"

Amazing, I have never been so intrigued to write a review for a game that I purchased for $2.99.

Shifting through the 2016 Summer Sale, I came across a rather "impulse buy" and a knowledgeable one. I had purchased Gunpoint on a late night after I had finished my final exams, I was up to try something I've never heard of, something that I would never think of buying.
I installed and played Gunpoint for about 3 and a half hours, I finished majority of the campaign and unlocked almost everything. I have to say, it was a huge refreshment to play Gunpoint. The amazing and hilarious dialog made me laugh so much that I wanted to replay the campaign for a second time to see the different dialogs I could trigger. If that wasn't funny enough for you, check out the achievements. On the other hand the gameplay was solid and simple, creating a feeling of "more than what meets the eye" type of game.
Other than that, All I could say is that Gunpoint is a short little fun game that you should pick up on sale. It's going to be worth the price with high replay value.

Kicked a door onto a guy, then I jumped on his buddy. Punched the second guy more than a hundred times in the face. They both died. Just like a part of me, after beating this awesome game.

If you like:

-Kicking doors
-Funny dialogue
-Feelin' like the coolest cat around
-Oh my god that soundtrack
-Punching people
-Being a human bullfrog
-Getting to be stealthy or go in guns blazing
-Punching people
-Did I mention how cool you feel playing this game?
-Making your own maps
-Crosslink.jpg
-Side quests that aren't stupid
-An intriguing story

...then gunpoint is for you. It's fun, smart, and a well executed puzzle game that'll probably take up a good 5 or so hours of your time. If you're looking for a refreshing puzzle/stealth indie game, this is a must.

A short and sweet detective story. Very tongune-in-cheek humor, gameplay is solid and enjoyable, the music also lends itself well to the overall atmosphere. All in all, a few hours well spent!

Good game with the amazing mechanic of the crosslink, and very fun...or it would be if it actually worked.
Let me rewind a bit. I played the demo of this game and loved it to bits. I saw gunpoint was on sale and snapped it up instantly. I tried to play it but it wouldn't work for some reason. I took all the advice of the developers and did everything they said. Nothing happened. Finally I got it to work by deleteing my music file. I played for a good 40 minutes and had a blast. Then it broke again. And would not fix. Now I'm sad. Buy this game because it's great, but buy it at your own risk because it does break occasionally.
