Now with a full release in gaming news, Hot Guns. Hence this #fast and #destructive action-platformer for Linux, SteamOS and Windows PC. All with a different variation of random #gameplay. Now the full release is available on Steam.

So I have to admit, my first impression is Broforce. The epic shooter platformer that boasts a roster of nostalgia beyond compare. Let alone the multiplayer action. Yet it seems we have a contender, Hot Guns.

What’s the Story

Since serious problems arise. The quick and simple solution, the only choice, they call for you. So conventional methods of operation “shoot first then shoot again!”. The mission, eliminate the 3 guys in charge. Hence the rather predictable but well armed organisation. Here players will get coordinates, a pager, powerful guns. And even bigger news, access to unlimited ca$h. While working on the basis of what you find is yours.

Hot Guns Features

  • Full-action Single Player story mode
  • Up to 4 Players in the Local Co-op missions [more to come with the updates]
  • Local Deathmatch arenas
  • An awful a lot of justified violence
  • Powerfully messy guns
  • Milions of fake currency to collect (it can be spend to buy even more powerful guns !)
  • Gadgets which will make running and shooting even more pleasant
  • Achievements
  • And who knows what else [with future news updates]

So all of the Hot Guns gaming mayhem is available now on Steam. Hence this release comes with a 15% discount until May 5th for Linux, SteamOS and Windows PC.
