“REDSHOT’s gunplay is a well-polished gem, and a collosal breath of fresh air.”
Movies, Games, and Tech

“What REDSHOT lacks in subtlety it makes up for in mayhem and likeability. It’s not the most precise or compelling 2D Metroidvania I’ve played, but the slick combat, quippy dialogue, satisfying exploration and competent implementation of bullet time make up for its occasional frustrations.”
8/10 – God is a Geek

“Though it took 7-years to make, REDSHOT is a labor of love that really shows. The gameplay is really tight and unique with wonderful art and audio.”

About This Game

*Works on Steam Deck/Linux through Proton*

After a malfunction in his ship's warp drive, Jack "Goose" Redshot finds himself stranded on a strange planet with even stranger people, and is forced to do anything in his power to survive and save the city of Carcosa from pure annihilation.

In REDSHOT, you will have to make split second decisions to stay alive in the middle of fast and frantic combat with a variety of horrid monstrosities and murderous nomads. Lucky for you, your ability to focus has been finely tuned after years of potato chips and video games, giving you the power to slow time and hit em right where it hurts. A variety of weapons and abilities lie at your disposal to use how you please in many different creative ways, and more to be discovered in the expansive land of Carcosa, which is open for you to explore, providing you're clever enough to stay alive and find its secrets. The land holds many forgotten tales, known by few and understood by none.

With over 200 rooms to explore and many weapons, items, and secrets to find, fans of the genre will find a challenging but fair adventure to be had in the wild lands of Carcosa.

Multiplayer Now Available!


Travel to the land of Carcosa where the great capitol city is under siege by an unknown off world invader.

Your focus bar allows you to slow time to fire off quick and accurate attacks, as well as quickly dodge incoming attacks to avoid damage. However, use them too much and you might end up in a critical spot! Slowing and dodging drains your stamina meter, but using them both will come in clutch to get you out of some sticky situations!
