Certain fans will be glad to know that Necrosoft Games’ console hybrid genre hit Gunhouse has been released on Steam and itch.io today.

According to the press release, Gunhouse experienced successful runs on Switch, PS4, Mobile, and Vita. The title has been described as a “part puzzle, part active tower defense,” game where the player is supposed to make big combos “to launch a hail of bullets and special attacks at the alien invaders who would like nothing better than to consume your delicious orphan friends.”

An interesting thing about Gunhouse is that it contains infinite levels. I mean, if you will be spending money to buy a game, why not go for one that will never end?

The title also includes upgradeable weapons, a newly-tuned survival mode, a “weird” story by Brandon Sheffield (Street Fighter 30th, Indivisible), and a unique hand-drawn art style.

The music is by Hyper Light Drifter composer Disasterpeace, and code by Frog Fractions creator Jim Crawford.

After our physical release of the game, complete with cassette soundtrack, we wondered what’s next? Are we forgetting anything? Oh right, PC,” Brandon Sheffield, Creative Director at Necrosoft, shared in the press release. “In seriousness, PC has been one of our most requested platforms, but we wanted to make sure we got it right, and could release the game at a competitive price. We hope PC players will find it worth the wait! With its never-ending gameplay, some fans have sunk over 100 hours into Gunhouse. Why? We’re not sure, but it’s probably because they like it!?”

As far as my opinion goes, I do like the very different art style. It reminds me of the kind of animated content that might air on Cartoon Network these days. As for the gameplay, I don’t think I have played such a title before. Moving colored squares to form weapons does look very interesting. Everything appears to be quite fast-paced. So, there’s clearly going to be a whole lot happening as you try to clear various stages.

In short, from what I can tell, this indie game title is going to offer something enjoyably intense to players.

Those familiar with Gunhouse will remember that the original version was first released on PlayStation Mobile in 2014. Over the years, the title has seen releases and upgrades for Switch, PlayStation Vita, PS4, Jump, Hatch, iOS, Android as well as Windows mobile.

You can buy the PC version of Gunhouse for only $6.99. Take note; it features all updates and input styles from prior versions. This means you can play with a controller, mouse and keyboard, or touchscreens. The game runs at a steady 60 fps on Windows and macOS.

The title is available for Windows on itch.io and Steam. The macOS version is currently available on itch.io, with Steam coming soon.

As for Necrosoft Games, they are a distributed game developer with members all over the world. Their games include Oh, Deer! and Gunsport.
