And that is not a bad thing at all. In fact, it’s frickin’ awesome!
Seriously, one quick look at Mothergunship in action shows its obvious evolutionary advancement from Tower of Guns. It’s from the same developer–Terrible Posture Games–and many of the enemies and weapons are basically carbon copies of those from ToG. Everything’s simply juiced up on Unreal Engine 4 steroids. Again, frickin’ awesome!
Mothergunship, like its predecessor, is rooted in old school twitch first-person shooting, à la Doom and Quake, yet amped up to new levels of chaos thanks to bullet hell intensity, filling the screen with hundreds of bullets and projectiles at a time, as well as randomly generated enemies and maps. Mothergunship further evolves with the additions of an in-depth modular weapon crafting system and full co-op so you can fight back against the robot alien invasion alongside a gun-toting buddy.
Grip Digital has partnered up with Terrible Posture Games to publish Mothergunship on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. A release date is TBA.
