A futuristic wild west, Warm Gun combines the favorite motifs of the classic western genre with the scraps of an obliterated technocracy. World War III has been fought to the tipping point and ecologists long unheeded cries have been silenced by the grim truth of their predictions. To the last drop of oil have the worlds resources been depleted, and only sporadic traces of modern structure can be sifted in the dust. Time ticks forward but humans must retrace their advancement back, through a history that has already been lived and to the Wild West for the second time around. We have trampled ahead to the past in muddy boots, to the United States of late 19th century. Greeted by the ghost of the wide-open country, the exhausted land is barren too, of all the old dreams we fulfilled beyond our means. This spun western lets you create your own one-of-a-kind characters and unique gangs; choose from weapons new and strange and a wider range.

Developer's Diary

In this developers diary, Warm Gun level designer Daniel Mullins introduces a few new gameplay features in 'Heart of Darkness', a subterranean mining complex that has become a deadly battleground for some of our gunners. It includes new dangers such as: spike traps, explosive barrels, falling stalactites, and the level's main highlight: The Flood!

Visual of the Week

As promised, here is a new screenshot showcasing an update to our blood spatter. The blood effect is still a work in progress but as you can see its been toned down from last weeks screens.

Oh, the blood!

Bumped - Gameplay Trailer

We would also like to take the opportunity to bump our previous gameplay video. It was originally posted during a busy time and we noticed that a fraction of our normal viewers never got a chance to see it. So if you missed it the first time around, here is our second gameplay trailer:

Apart from some glitches (mainly the walking anims and effects coming from behind certain weapons), the games looks great. Def getting this!

Thanks for the comment! Those glitches you see are all on the current to-do list. They are placeholder animations and will be replaced with some smoother ones soon.

You are correct! The rigs on all of our weapons are being re-done and the first person placement is going to be adjusted for almost all of our weapons.

Additionally, someone said the heaven and hell (glowing handguns) are too "glowy" for the game and need toned down. We agree! They look magical, and that's not the message we're trying to convey with Warm Gun.

As you can tell, we still have a lot of work to do. We really appreciate your comments - all of you guys - because it allows us to make our game (and our updates) better with each critique.
