Gunkatana! Pixel Art Bloodfest at Turbo Speeds!
« on: March 15, 2016, 10:06:16 am »
Hi everyone, I'm Geraldo  8) developer of Gunkatana, a top-down cyberpunk battler with gruesome deaths and turbo-fast speed rails that let you zip around the levels at breakneck speeds!

Gunkatana is powered by 2DToolkit and its wonderful array of time saving features.
We've just now hit Steam Greenlight!

The megacorps are staging brutal combat all across the city. Choose your fighter and take the city back with LASERS, KATANAS and the unique TURBO RAILS.

Gunkatana's pre-alpha build includes 2 characters, 2 levels, 3 exclusive Retrowave music tracks by Electric Cafe, from Aqua Kitty and Rock Boshers fame.

Sound Design by Joonas Turner (Nuclear Throne, Broforce, Downwell) and Niilo Takalainen.


Experience a ruthless combat system: one-hit kills, KATANAS that deflect lasers, bombs, exploding cars, and the ultimate danger - HIT N' RUN 'EM with your FEET on the SPEED RAILS!

Easy to learn but hard to master. Use the uniquely designed speed rail system to move lightning-fast from one place to another, as you decapitate and eviscerate your enemies.


LOCAL MULTIPLAYER: A multitude of co-op and competitive game modes, with every one fighting for themselves or in teams.

CAMPAIGN MODE: Ravage the city on your own or with a friend and uncover the secrets behind the Gunkatana Tournament! A deep cyberpunk story intertwined with knuckle-whitening arcade action.

POWERUP IMBUED: Change your murdering tactics in an instant! Designed by the megacorporations, powerups allow you to move faster, drop bombs, fire more lasers, heat-seek your foes and much more!


RAIL GRIND: The fast-beating heart of Gunkatana. No rails, no future! Zip along the levels at your leisure, but be careful: you can get run over!

TACTICAL LASER: The merciless lasers will bounce back and kill you, but not if you know when and where to fire them.

SPIN ATTACK: 360 blade attack, wreaking havoc all around. Fast and deflects lasers! Knocks people off the rails.

STAB: Dashing forward, sword in hand! Slow, but breaks through the spin attack.


We're working towards a full release in late 2016. Vote for Gunkatana on Greenlight and bring this murderfest to Steam!

Gunkatana is currently pre-alpha. The build available for free is a demonstration of our vision and a proof of concept.

There are more characters, combat mechanics, levels, and a whole single player / co-op campaign in the pipeline.
Check out the local multiplayer demo now, it includes early AI bots so you can play on your own as well.


Kotaku's 51 British Games to look out for in 2016
"Think multiplayer Hotline Miami with this one. Gunkatana is neon-soaked, brutal, fast-paced, arcadey and very cool."

The Guardian
"A kind of retro-tinged mash up of Hotline Miami and Towerfall."

Rock, Paper, Shotgun
"Oh, what's this travelator thing? You can speed across it in a single blur? Well, I suppose that is quite cool."

Don't Be a Pixel
"The soundtrack feeds into the cyberpunk atmosphere and the swift violent gameplay."
"An even crazier and, to me at least, more fun Hotline Miami."

Impact Nottingham
"As a lover of local multiplayer games, I placed Gunkatana firmly amongst my favorites at the event."
"...amazingly fun and is definitely one to watch if you like local multiplayer games."
"Even as it is now, Gunkatana is a game I'd love to have in my collection."


We've just released our very first playable build, featuring Local Multiplayer, with optional AI bots so you can also play on your own.
The finished game will include a single player / co-op campaign!
