What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Our goal is to create a game that will fulfill the expectations of roguelite action enthusiasts. We've put a lot of work into the key game mechanics, and we've also done our best to make Madshot hectically fun. We aim to tighten the experience through cooperation with the community. Your feedback will help us identify areas of improvement and offer valuable ideas. We'll implement what we reasonably can.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are assuming that the Early Access phase will last several months but can't determine it exactly yet. During this time we will be adding new features, weapons, items, fixing bugs and refining key features bringing on board community feedback.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The Early Access will containly roughly 50% of the final content and the core mechanics of the game are present, but we expect to increase the number of distinctive playable areas, unique enemies, minibosses and bosses, upgrades and... who knows because we'll be checking your feedback and there could be surprises.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“It's basically the first half of the game, in a polished state. There are 4 out of 7 zones present. As stated above we will add content and there will be some rebalancing of old zones in future updates.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We don't know yet. We we'll evaluate the work and content that we put through the Early Access process to take that decision.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Madshot players can share their opinions and suggestions on the Steam forum and reach out to us on our Discord channel: We will discuss and hold polls. Collecting feedback and suggestions from the community is very important to us.
Thanks to your feedback, we will be able to refine the main features of the game and prioritize content delivery to meet the expectations of roguelite action enthusiasts.”

“When it comes down to it Madshot is an outstanding rogue-lite that takes the formula and severally turns it upside down, I had a blast of time and I will continue to slay all the creatures and can not wait to see what is next in the future updates.”
Gaming Euphoria

“This truly is a high intensity thrill ride, and is one of my favourite games of the year so far. The replay factor will keep me coming back again and again.”
4.5/5 stars – Just click on the head

“It’s fair to say that Madshot Early Access is an addictive game. Perhaps a little too much. After those initial doubts about whether the game was too hard (it certainly isn’t easy!), the perks kicked in, and I have to say, I love this game, I really do.”

About This Game

Cthulhu heard the call

In search of eternal life, you invited forces beyond your understanding. You must invade that abominable eldritch mountain of slushy nastiness known as Cthulhu. Be it your atonement or damnation.

You are in Control

Doge, roll, dash, wall jump, Backflip, frontflip, hang from ropes, and keep on shooting while doing it. Madshot offers a really fluid and responsive movement where you’re always in control to create intense and cool moments.

Slaughter your way to Cthulhu

There's a multitude of areas that each offer unique enemies and mechanics.
Kill enough enemies to charge a blood portal that summons rewards and a path to the next area and then survive epic and dreadful multi-phased boss battles.

Create lethal combinations

There's a big focus on synergies between Weapons, sidearms, upgrades, and ultimate abilities that you can combine to make each run unique and fun.
