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.
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.
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 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.
