I’m excited to announce that the MOTHERGUNfriendSHIP Update for MOTHERGUNSHIP is now LIVE! As the name might imply, this update adds the ability to play with a friend to Mothergunship. Thank you for all the folks who helped us with this by jumping into earlier Alpha branches. Your feedback and insight was massively helpful.

So dive into the action with your favorite buddy: show them your most ridiculous creations, argue with them about who should get which gun parts from the store and enjoy taking down the Mothergunship..uh..together!

COOP is available once you have gotten access to your Headquarters (so, after the intro/tutorial) and from there you can enter the door in your Headquarters labeled “Portal”, where you can invite a friend into your progression through the game. Together you can fight through the entire rest of the campaign, all the side missions, as well as Endless and Sandbox modes. Feel free to also tackle the Endgame Campaign, which has been tuned quite a bit in response to player feedback.

We've got a WHOLE LOT of other changes with this patch as well. Here are the full patch notes:

Main Coop features:
  • Co-op play introduced!

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
Now that MOTHERGUNSHIP has been released, it is the perfect time to take a trip down memory lane and show you what the road has been like.

Tower of Guns - (Dominic Tarason)


Mothergunship is about big, stupid, hand-crafted guns and exploding robots. Successor to Terrible Posture Games’ Tower of Guns and co-developed by Czech studio Grip Digital. It’s a roguelike-ish “Bullet Hell” FPS about raiding procedurally generated alien spaceships, hoarding gun-barrels and bolting them onto your remarkably agile power armour. A denser game than its predecessor, its complex systems are dressed up in breezy, comedic style, but its many turning gears grind against each other far too often.


Hello Everyone!

The wait is over! We are very excited to announce that MOTHERGUNSHIP is now available on Steam!

Post-launch features
We are going to support the game by releasing new content and features post-launch. Below is a list with some of the main features that will be added to the game in the near future.
- Online co-op mode (August update)
- Leaderboards
- Daily challenges

- More enemies
Hello everyone! We have an important new blog post about co-op and future updates in MOTHERGUNSHIP.
We don't feel that the co-op is in the state that we want it to be, and because we don't want to deliver something that will ruin your experience, we have decided to hold back co-op until August, as part of a free update.
For more details, please read our new blog post.
MOTHERGUNSHIP - (Dominic Tarason)


Some shooters offer military precision. Some shooters deliver technical movement systems. Roguelike shooter Mothergunship (pseudo-sequel to Tower of Guns) doesn’t care about that. What it does do is let you build a twelve-barrelled shotgun so enormously scattershot that it hits absolutely everything in the room, and if you somehow manage to miss anything on the first pass, the pellets ricochet, just to be sure. It’s also out in less than three weeks. Within, a shiny new launch-date trailer featuring a multitude of exceedingly impractical firearms, plus a demo.


Hello everyone!

LAUNCH DATE CONFIRMED: Mothergunship will be out on Steam on July 17 for $24,99!

Check out the new trailer:
Hello folks,

It's been three weeks since we released the MOTHERGUNSHIP Gun Crafting Range demo, and we have selected the best of the best community creations for you!

Check out our new blog post to find out!
