Devolve Digital has plucked another relatively unknown indie developer's exciting project from the cold. They're partnering with developer FarmerGnome to publish A Fistful of Gun. Yes, the game is exactly what its title imples. A Fistful of Gun is a top down action shooter set in the Old West, where up to 8 players can cooperatively battle against undead psychopaths all the way to Hell. And no, not back.
Players will select from one of eleven different gunslingers who each have their own unique playstyle and armaments. According to early details, some of the slingers are for experts only, but there will certainly be options for those who haven't earned their spurs. Shooting down foes will earn gold which can then be spent on upgrades and items. It's a freakin' video game, ya know?
Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker has a way with words:
"A Fistful of Gun is awesome and easily the second best western game ever made. Red Dead Redemption is still the best though. That game was incredible."
While not necessarily the most inspired game, there's no argument that the gaming environment can never have too many cooperative games on the PC. Something about grouping with friends and shooting zombie bandits and injuns while riding down logs on a river as they head to the lumber mill, or at an old mine. You know, all those old west style shenanigans that seem to have fallen out of favor in recent years. Just look at all these tropey playable characters.
We're talking about Devolver Digital, so of course A Fistful of Gun will be coming to PC only and is planned to launch in 2015. However, fans can pick up and try the game out at PAX Prime in the Indie Megabooths Minibooth if they so please.
