The first game I was able to see at EGX Rezzed 2019, Ludicrous Games' Guntastic is a fast-paced arcade shooter that looks to be a ton of fun with friends. It made a great first impression, playing well, presenting a ton of options and looking and sounding excellent.
It sat comfortably in the Unreal Engine Showcase, surrounded by a variety of impressive and unique-looking games. Still, this charming little arcade shooter managed to stand out with its vibrant art and compelling multiplayer atmosphere.
Guntastic is a fast-paced arcade-style shooter that pits up to four players against one another in an arena that’s as chaotic as it is fluid. This exciting couch/online multiplayer title makes a great first impression. The controls are tight, the music is hectic and infectious, and there’s a huge variety of fun weaponry to tinker with.
The game also features evolving stages rotate between matches. They each have their own unique environmental effects - like a train that'll ram through the stage and mangle anyone in its way - that players can manually trigger. The variety of weapons and power-ups, like invisibility and unlimited ammo, should ensure this fun multiplayer madness remains fun for a long time.
If fast-paced games designed to be enjoyed locally with friends is your kind of jam, then Guntastic should definitely be on your radar. It's planned for an Early Access release later this Summer. Stay tuned for more!
I spoke to Francesco from Ludicrous Games about the game, its inspirations, plans for the future, and more. Check it out below.
