Update #1: Lots of fixes, handy additions

December 21st, 2013

Hey everybody, in this update I've made some additions, fixed a lot of glitches, and made some tiny tweaks.

Additions

  • Character select timer will count down faster if shoot, jump, and sword buttons are all held down
  • New showdown rule for lives mode: Players will go to a showdown if they have more or the same amount of kills as the last person standing
  • In the Mountain Showdown you no longer die if you hit the edge of the screen, but the mountain has slippery sides and spikes line the bottom of the level
  • If you've botched up your controls, you can hold F12 on the title screen to reset them
Fixes
  • Teams
  • Showdowns involving wrong players
  • Game no longer restarts after 2 matches
  • Start + Select restart bug
  • Re-spawning after lives lost bug
  • Stereo sound bug during character select fixed
  • Can no longer make menu choices before menu is visible
  • Windowed version of the game is no longer super tiny
Details
  • Game now uses pixel perfect integer scaling (Thanks Allan O.!)
  • Better player spacing with more than 2 players in Fortress showdown
  • Easier to jump up left side in Fortress level “Axes”
  • Easier to see leftmost spawn in Fortress level “Hall”
  • Stray tile covered in Cemetery level “Depths”

FAQ

December 11th, 2013

Hey guys, thought I'd try to answer some of your concerns. As the only developer on the project I'm doing what I can to address bugs and compatibility issues, as well as take suggestions into consideration.

Will The Game Be Updated?
Of course! As it is, the game has it's own share of bugs and glitches, and I am currently working to iron them out. I would also like to continue to add content to the game.

What Controllers Are Compatible?
The game works with all devices. If you go to Controllers: Custom, you can configure controls for each player individually.

Can I Play Alone?
If you don't have any friends at-the-ready, the game does have a mode called Survival where 1-4 people can face off against AI.

Why No Online?
Because of the pixel-perfect fast-paced instant-death nature of the game, any minor discrepancy between players' experiences holds major consequences.
Venting your anger at every 9-year-old kid with fast internet that skunks you, despite witnessing yourself striking first every time, wouldn't be as satisfying as taunting the friends you invited over for some pizza and video games.

I'd hate for a crappy online experience to misrepresent the joy of a get-together.

“Samurai Gunn is a smoking gun, a blood-stained sword, the quick feet of a trained warrior out to kill. It’s a local multiplayer survival game that feels lush in its violence. I love it. I’m a slave to hitting replay.”

100% Recommend this if you have gamepads (i'm using PS3's w/ MotionJoy on XBOX setting works perfect), HDMI cable, 3+ friends, and plenty of beer. This is my new party game, and I can see it hanging around for a long time.

Even of you have no friends and can't drink beer, it is worth it for the survival mode alone.

So much fun, but two major flaws: for a 15 dollar game, there just isn't really enough. It's AMAZING fun, don't get me wrong, but there's only so much you can do with two modes, the second of which at first glance isn't heavily different from the other (Versus and Survival). My other problem is that there's just not clear communication with some parts of the game - sometimes you'll win even if you have less than 10 kills, or a showdown will end and nothing will happen.

It's extremely solid as a game and I commend the focus on no-online cause it really does shine on couch versus, but there just isn't enough in this for a full price recommendation in my eyes.

Playing Samurai Gunn for the first time may be the most fun I've had playing a multiplayer game. There's almost no learning curve at all and then it's just non-stop action, drama, conniving strategies, and a lot of yelling. The controls are simple to start out with, but open up to more complex gameplay as the subtle specifics of the mechanics reveal themselves. This game is hilarious and heart-pounding; one moment we were cracking up at the absurdity of it all, and the next we were literally on the edge of our seats. Only one of the three friends I played with would probably consider themselves a gamer, but we all enjoyed it equally. This game is for everyone.

Amazing multiplayer game. Sit down with a few friends and enjoy some great combat. Also has single player survival. 100% recommend a controller. Deceptively simple. Once you figure everything out, the versatility of the game opens up. Very tight controls.

This game is like Joust crossed with Samurai Showdown with added chaos. Controls are exceptionally tight and it's a joy to play. It's a bummer that this game is local-only, but I can't imagine how they'd deal with latency on a game like this. Absolutely worth getting a couple controllers and a few friends together to play this. Plus, Max Temkin is a dreamboat.
