What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I'm a solo developer and I need your feedback to make this game the best it can be! Early Access allows me to build the game with the community involved every step of the way. My last game (Dungeon Deathball) benefitted hugely from Early Access and I'm keen to recapture that magic again.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“A few months at least, a year at most. It depends on the popularity of the game and how much work the community feels is necessary to really make it live up to its potential.”

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

“The short version is... more stuff! 😀 More weapons, suits, upgrades, enemies, bosses, levels, achievements, etc. All of these will dramatically increase the variety of gameplay, giving you more choices for creating unique builds, experiencing surprising situations and discovering new secrets.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“A complete 20 minute run is fully playable. The game currently includes 1 level, 6 GunSuits, 14 weapons and dozens of upgrades with many, many more planned for the full version. Steam Achievements, leaderboards, cloud save functionality and full controller support are already implemented. I always keep the game as bug-free as possible, especially when it comes to major crashes.”

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

“The price will increase a little during and after Early Access to reflect the increase in quality and content. However, I do want to keep the price low so that the game is affordable and accessible to as many players as possible. I would be happier if more people could play the game at a low price than a small group of people played it at a high price. Times are tough for everyone.”

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

“Community feedback will be a vital part of this game's development. I will be reading all of your comments, reviews and requests, as well as engaging with the Steam forums and my Discord server. My last game, Dungeon Deathball, had an Early Access phase which resulted in a number of features added at the request of player feedback. I fully intend to do the same again with GunSuit Guardians.”

About This Game

Defend Earth from an immeasurable alien invasion in GunSuit Guardians, an action-roguelite twin-stick horde survival.

Take to the skies in an advanced aerial combat suit, wield enormous weapons, and upgrade your gear to become an unstoppable force of destruction.

GunSuit Guardians condenses arcade shooter combat with roguelike elements to create a deep, action-packed experience where each run provides a fresh challenge.


Choose your upgrades and evolve a unique GunSuit build in each run. Create overpowered arsenals of high-tech superweapons that can cut through alien hordes like butter.


Face overwhelming enemy numbers, bring down gargantuan bosses and harvest strange alien artifacts with properties unknown to science. Navigate turbulent skies and atmospheric anomalies in an ever-changing aerial battlefield.


Cash in the spoils of your victories to unlock permanent bonuses, passive abilities and new GunSuits to aid you in future battles. Endless combinations of equipment means you'll never have the same loadout twice.


Seamlessly switch between auto-aim mode and twin-stick style controls. Play casually and let your weapons do the work for you, or take full control to concentrate your fire on the most formidable targets.

Become the ultimate GunSuit Guardian and protect Earth from annihilation!
