The silly, maddeningly tough and compelling Enter The Gungeon by Dodge Roll Games is the new giveaway on the Epic Games Store, and an easy pick for fans of terrible puns. Take the Binding Of Isaac (or any roguelike-like action dungeon crawler), clean up the blood, and stuff it with bullets to dodge and videogame firearm goofs. Descend into the six chambers of the Gungeon to battle the Beholster, the Dragun, the Mine Flayer and an army of Gundead, who are bullets, with guns, that shoot bullets. Grab the gun pun fun here before June 20th and keep it forever.

What have those scoundrels at Devolver Digital gone and done now? Oh look, it s Devolver Bootleg, a mixtape of the Punk IPA publisher’s classics that someone left in their jeans pocket before a wash and now the musics all fuzzy and the track list is garbled nonsense. Also it s one percent off, yeah, because screw discounts?

So, is this a delightful slice of performance-art-as-consumer-product brilliance? Or have Devolver, in their mission statement to point a funhouse mirror at the game industry s cynical marketing, done a big old cynicism themselves?

Sometimes, from the dark dungeons of the internet, a Twitter account emerges with such power that it rocks the industry to its core. Grizzled veterans question their designs, their life choices, their wisdom. Paradigms shift. Bars are raised.

Thanks to “Can You Pet the Dog?“, you can pet the dog in Enter The Gungeon. The ramifications are profound.

Dodge Roll Games are finally putting their twitchy roguelike shooter Enter The Gungeon to bed, with one large final update, A Farewell To Arms, out now. It looks to be a significant free expansion, adding another set of guns and gadgets, two new playable characters (one purely random, one seemingly story-focused), a new level with its own boss and a new way to play: Rainbow Mode. They’ve also continued the rebalancing work that started with Advanced Gungeons & Draguns, aiming to make the player feel “more powerful more often”. Below, a spoiler-free(?) trailer.

A Farewell to Arms is the final, goodbye, expansion to Enter the Gungeon that extends and further refines the original game with new features and variety. For the first time since the release of the base game, you can take control of two new secret characters, the randomized Paradox and the [REDACTED]. Experienced Gungeoneers will also explore the new secret area filled with new enemies, face off against a unique new boss, and go nuts with the community inspired Rainbow Mode!

Continuing in AG&D’s tradition, the Gungeon is more inviting than ever: a buff pass has been made on a huge number of guns and items, making red chests more consistently good, along with a huge number of fixes and quality of life improvements.

And of course, there are plenty of New Guns, New Items, and New Synergies!

Here is a breakdown:

Your constant killing of the past has created a time rift, things are getting wacky! This new character starts with one random starter gun, one random gun, and one random item.

There is absolutely no way to ever guess what this second secret character is, so don’t even try. Play it yourself!

Enter the most hiddenest chamber of the Gungeon, the RNG department! Weird and horrible enemy hybrids await!

The new chamber has a boss, why wouldn’t it! Turn your sound up for this one, we hired a professional.

Ever wanted to see moooooore RAINBOW CHESTS? Well, meet Bowler! He has a new mode for you… its RAINBOW MODE! Each floor drops a rainbow chest, you can pick any ONE item per floor, but that’s all you get! Choose wisely! Also we stole this idea wholesale from the community, it was a really good idea! Good job everybody!

This effigy of the mighty Beholster is missing his weapons! What might happen if they were brought to him? WHO CAN KNOW!?

35+ brand new guns and items, like the Fat Line, which shoots bullets backwards through time! (and walls!), and the Ticket to the Gun Show, which calls in a favor from Gatling Gull!

A bunch of them! Like this one that gives the Mr. Accretion Jr. bullet moons! Far out!

Alternative costumes are now complete!

“More powerful more often” - Many guns and items have received buffs, A tier guns & items are more evenly strong, almost all changes are based on community feedback. Some notable changes are: the cardboard box now let's you go invisible at will, right in front of enemies, and Starpew … is less bad. The Ruby Bracelet even has a new quest to improve it.

Boss health bars turn transparent when the player is under them, the Robot can now use shrines that take health, fixed a bug where if you played lots of runs in a row you could get an unhealthy amount of wall mimics, hidden features of items have been largely made explicit in the Ammonomicon entries, some performance improvements (most noticeable on the Switch version)… other stuff!

GASP! The most hated feature of Gungeon has been adjusted a nigh insignificant amount!

She #&%#’n finished it! It is OP as hell.

Secrets and More:
There’s a new variant of a hard enemy waiting to be put down, along with a few other things we won’t mention here.

Final thoughts:
We have been working on Enter the Gungeon for five years now… we are extremely excited to finally consider Gungeon complete, and to move on to new projects, with the release of this final update on the three year anniversary of Gungeon’s launch. We sincerely hope you enjoy what is included. And of course, there will be bugs, but hopefully much less than AG&D (we allocated much more time for testing) and as usual we will work as quickly as possible to fix them. If you want to aid that process, please send an email with your log file to: bugreports@dodgeroll.com.[dodgeroll.com] Finally, thank you so much for supporting us for the last few years. It’s been a ride. ENTER THE GUNGEON may finally be complete, but the Gungeon remains.

As always, link to full patch notes here:

Enter the Gungeon

Enter the Gungeon's last-ever content update will arrive on Switch, Xbox One, PS4, and PC on April 5th, developer Dodge Roll Games has announced, marking three years since the wonderful rogue-like shooter's initial release.

Fittingly, this final update is titled A Farewell to Arms, and adds a host of new features and quality of life improvements to the already meaty game. For starters, there're two new playable characters (or Gungeoneers as they're known) in the form of The Paradox and The Gunslinger. These will be joined by "dozens" of new guns and items, a new secret floor with its own boss, and a new NPC called Bowler, linked to the new community-inspired Rainbow Mode.

Players embarking on this trip-with-a-twist through the Gungeon are able to select one gun or item from a special Rainbow chest at the start of each floor. It's important to choose wisely, however, as that's all you'll get, aside from regular pick-ups and Master Rounds.

It’s been three years of guns shooting bullets at bullets shooting guns which shoot bullets, and Dodge Roll Games are finally ready to put their bullet hell roguelike Enter The Gungeon to bed. On April 5th, the game’s third anniversary, they’re rolling out one final free expansion-ish update to the game, called A Farewell To Arms. It’s adding two new playable characters, a new secret floor (and corresponding boss), new features and of course a pile of new guns and items to play around with. It will also include the “community-inspired” Rainbow mode.

Update: More info on Rainbow Mode below – confusingly, it doesn’t have anything to do with the popular mod of the same name.>

Enter The Gungeon developers Dodge Roll have announced via Reddit that their plans to release a paid expansion to their popular bullet hell roguelike have been cut short. Instead, they’re going to re-focus on producing one final update to polish up the game as much as they can before they go all-in on their next game. The devs say that just looking at their latest internal work “shows just how shaky our foundations for Gungeon truly are” – it’s just become impractical to add more to the game, short of completely redesigning it from scratch, as The Binding Of Isaac did.


Enter the Gungeon

Enter the Gungeon developer Dodge Roll has ceased development on a paid expansion so it can work on a new game instead.

It's more trouble than it's worth, essentially.

Enter the Gungeon was built nearly five years ago when Dodge Roll wasn't as good at making games, said Dodge Roll itself. Gungeon has "shaky" foundations and it's really frustrating making new stuff for it.
