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."
9.0 - Polygon

"Good ideas, brilliantly executed, this is one of the year's best games."
9.0 - VideoGamer

"Simple but challenging, easily learned but deep and rewarding."
90% - GameFront

"An outstanding puzzle game with sharp writing, beautiful music and clever mechanics."
Joystiq

"Gunpoint is smart, creative, responsive, surprising, and possessed of an uncommon respect for the player."

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

This game plays with an interesting and unique concept in a way that feels fresh and enjoyable. The concept that the game centres itself around can create some truly challenging puzzles that feel satisfying to complete.
The interaction between the protagonist and the other characters is humours and engaging and the use of dialogue trees allow some player input in some of the games crucial plot points.
I enjoyed the music and found myself humming along to it as I was thinking my way through some challenging levels.
Overall the game is fun and interesting and one of my all-time favourites.

Excellent game. Gunpoint gives you an incredible amount of freedon in very cleverly thoughtout and well designed levels. There are so many ways to do each one, that even once you've completed the game, its still fun to try a completely different tactic for a whole new run. From super sneaky beaky spy, to door-kicking down badassery, you can really play how YOU want to play and that is what makes this game so great.

9/10. Would reccommend.

Every level on this game was a brand-new puzzle. Everything about this game was unique. The stealth, gadgets, upgrades, the traps, the story, the dialogue, the movement, the levels, the characters... and after I 100% it (im cool) in such a short time, I can only hope for a sequel. AND I GOT A HAT FOR TF2 WITH PURCHASE!!1!11!!!! It's ugly tho....

Great and funny adventure, It was great until the end. Took me about 2 hours to finish it and it was pretty great! Great humor yet it doesn't over do it.
Try punching someone 200 times and watch the bottom of the screen

A+++. Simple mechanics combined to make complex gameplay; too bad it was so short. I motored through it in two nights.

First ten minutes: Haha, what a cool concept, and it's funny!

First hour: Whoa, this is a game built on barely-coherent mechanics that would definitely appeal to someone with neurochemistry very different from my own.

Fourth hour: I just rerouted power from a lightswitch into a power socket into an elevator call button which when activated will knock out a guard patrolling near the elevator which clears the room so when I arrive the sound detector will open a door that contains a guard whose gun is linked to a different gun on a different floor so when the guard fires he'll trigger the other gun which will kill a guard defending a laptop with sensitive data which I can only reach by throwing a different switch and leaping down through a glass ceiling and knocking out the gunman guard before he can reload at which point I bolt through the vault door before it closes.
