New Patch and COOP Alpha Branch!

Hey folks!
Well, it's been a busy week since we launched! We just pushed a new patch to Mothergunship with a healthy dose of fixes and tweaks. While every patch will come with a lot of minor adjustments to levels (fixing gaps, collision issues, etc) and balance (tuning mobs, populations, etc.). The biggest addition to this particular update is a more robust options menu. Most notably:
  • Allow for hotkey rebinding of E/Interact/SkipDialog
  • Separated mouse sensitivity x/y axes
  • Allow for mouse sensitivity to be set anywhere from 0-3 (basically, double the max, this is useful for some)
  • Allow for more granular mouse sensitivity via smaller increments
  • Allow for more options in the Mhz framerate cap (for 100hz) NOTE: This option has a newly discovered issue. We've found a resolution and will push a hotfix soon.
  • Start in borderless windowed to try and resolve some of the at-launch resolution issues (we might need more community feedback on this, since it's highly dependent on individual user setups)
  • Add option to turn off/on Hud Flashing from picking up items
  • Add option for invert Y ONLY in crafting menu, (split from main invert Y)
  • Add option to either scaler/disable screenshake...OR MAKE IT TWICE AS STRONG (yes, people did request that).

Some of these were put together pretty quickly to address community feedback..and as a result there might be issues still. We welcome further feedback as well.

Meanwhile, we continue to work away on the Coop update coming in August, and invite you to try it. If you are feeling brave, and you don't mind a little construction dust, then please head on over to our DISCORD ( where there are instructions on how to access the Alpha branch, as well as some warnings.

Thanks so much

About This Game

MOTHERGUNSHIP mixes bullet-hell intensity with the FPS genre, and brings one of the largest gun customization options seen in video games. It’s up to you to equip your over-the-top arsenal and defeat a robotic alien armada that has conquered Earth.

Craft gun monstrosities that no reasonable person could ever lift, fight gigantic bosses and experience randomized mayhem as you battle your way to the heart of the fleet to destroy the MOTHERGUNSHIP!


Face off against overwhelming odds in brutal, non-stop combat where thinking on your feet is the only way to survive. Dodge hundreds of bullets with unique FPS/Bullet-hell hybrid gameplay. Each ship hosts hordes of alien machines, deadly traps, and intimidating bosses, all set on preventing you from saving humanity. Go get ‘em.


To take down the MOTHERGUNSHIP, you’ll need your very own personalized arsenal of destruction. Luckily, in MOTHERGUNSHIP you can create the gun of your dreams with one of the most modular gun-crafting systems ever seen in a videogame. Want to have twelve-barrel gun that shoots homing rockets? Or do you prefer a lightning shotgun? And what gun wouldn’t look better with a fishtank affixed to the top? Go for it! The design of your destructive arsenal is in your hands.


Join the ranks of the resistance against the robotic alien invasion. Destroy hordes of metallic fiends and earn your way to the Mothergunship!

TO BE ADDED IN AUGUST 2018 AS A FREE UPDATE: MOTHERGUNSHIP will feature an online co-op mode. Fight together with a friend in a full co-op experience, while you work together to cut through the alien fleet and reach that ultimate goal – bringing down the MOTHERGUNSHIP.

Post-launch MOTHERGUNSHIP will support free updates for the community to add more depth to your gameplay with new gun parts, more enemies, big bad bosses, extra features, and more modes. The first update will release in August, bringing online co-op gameplay, together with additional gun parts. More info can be found in this post.
