Radiostatic has just released it’s #Mexican #standoff ‘em up on Steam #Greenlight for Linux, Mac and Windows PC. Still in development, Flamingo! is an online strategy Mexican stand-off game between two opposing players and their teams of gun toting animal-banditos. The concept of the game is to position banditos to hold up banks and grab cash while covering your backs against enemy armed animals.

Rules are important, check out the explanation on the Steam Greenlight page:

“The game starts in the standoff where players position and orient their banditos one at a time, in double blind turns. During the standoff players are trying to unravel the impending shootout while identifying strategic linchpins and outsmarting their opponent.

“After all the banditos have been placed, the shootout ensues and the players watch the consequences of their actions. The objective is to control more gold than your opponent by the end of the shootout. Banditos with fewer guns will shoot earlier. Shooting a bank nets a bandito gold. Shooting a bandito will steal any gold they had.”

Game Modes

Multiplayer

  • Match against a random opponent or friends
  • Collect new character portraits and accumulate gold

Single Player / Offline

  • Puzzle Mode – Solve Mexican standoff puzzles at your leisure
  • AI – Practice your skills against an AI opponent

Though it’s intended for multiplayer, it will have singleplayer gameplay against AI, with the nice touch of having warmup AI matches while you queue for an online match.

Flamingo! has been shown publicly since early last year at gaming events such as: GDC, Boston FIG, Indiecade, and The NYU Games Forum. The feedback received largely influenced the decisions Radiostatic have made, and the Steam community feedback will continue to influence decision in how Flamingo! evolves. Making it clear that even after launching the two man team will continue to work with the community to add new content, game modes, and more. No word yet on when it will be released.
