Canyon & Workshop Update

All right, it's time for the biggest GunHero update ever! So much hype!



Click here to watch the trailer

Canyon

The update contains 25 new and challenging canyon-themed levels! The canyon levels unlock in your campaign saves after completing the final boss. If you have already completed it, you can start fighting your way through the canyon immediately. Just beware: this area won't be easy. The bad guys have been dumping toxic waste into the canyon for years, so expect to find large pools of toxic waste, slimes that have evolved from the waste and of course various safety measurements to keep unwanted visitors out from the area.

Workshop

Workshop support is finally here! You can create custom levels using the same level editor that has been used to create the game's campaign, and upload your levels to the Steam Workshop. Others can then play and rate your levels. There is a super slick in-game level browser, so you won't have to leave the game to find new stuff to play.



To help getting started with the level editor, I've written a guide (Finnish version) that should get you familliar with it. I'm also more than happy to answer any questions on the game's discussion page.

Changelog
  • Grenade Aim Preview
  • Full localization to Finnish (Right click on the game in your library, and go to properties to change the language)
  • Various UI improvements
  • Added support for two players on one keyboard (just note that keyboards might not send out enough events for this to work nicely)
  • Various minor bug fixes

Reviews

“Simple in its mechanics but beautifully fiendish in the way it puts them all together, it’s an almost perfect blend of challenge vs. accomplishment.”
4/5 – Indie Game Reviewer

Just Updated

GunHero now has Steam Workshop support! You can create, play and rate custom levels using the in-game level editor & level browser!

About This Game

Fight your way through multiple environments filled with traps and obstacles, each more dangerous and deadly than the last. Shoot bullets and throw grenades at your enemies while releasing prisoners from their cages. You are the hero this evil-filled world needs.

GunHero is a 2D-action-platformer-shooter filled with handcrafted levels set in various environments, where each one contains its own unique dangers. Your task is simple: save the world from the evil Count Darkcape.

  • Shoot your way through enemy troops, pick up weapons from your dead foes, yield destruction with your grenades and become victorious with the help of your shield! But don't forget about the prisoners and hostages that desperately need your help!
  • Watch out for the deadly traps and obstacles! Spike balls are much harder to dodge than you'd think, and is there anything more dangerous than a huge blade? Well, maybe a spinning laser beam, or a missile launcher. You can travel on rotating and moving platforms, climb ladders or fly using the large propellers. Just don't get trapped on the roof of an elevator as death by getting crushed between an elevator and a wall is not a pleasant death.
  • Having trouble? Could the world maybe use a few heroes more? Just invite a few of your favorite friends over for some good old-fashioned couch co-op! Enemies won't stand a chance against you.
