Boxed specialist Sold Out has partnered with Terrible Posture Games and Grip Digital to publish the physical console versions of first-person bullet-hell shooter Mothergunship in 2018, the company has announced.
Arriving on PS4 and Xbox One and digitally on PC, Mothergunship is the spiritual successor to 2014’s Tower of Guns, which also utilised a first person view in a bullet-hell shooter environment. Here, the developers have incorporated procedurally generated rooms and enemies, weapon customisation that lets players create their own destructive armoury, and "some of the biggest bosses in FPS history."
“This is a great title for Sold Out. With Mothergunship, you have the freedom to create whatever you want with a new modular approach to gun crafting that allows players to express themselves with millions of possible combinations. You can even strap 12 barrels to one weapon if you want,” commented Joshua Garrity, Digital Content Manager at Sold Out Sales & Marketing Limited.
“This makes for exhilarating fast and explosive gameplay, plus the game’s procedurally generated level layouts and enemy configurations ensure that it feels like a new challenge every time you play, no matter how many times you come back for more."
“Mothergunship is over-the-top old school shooter fun, and I want players to laugh out loud when they play it, ” said project director and Terrible Posture Games founder, Joe Mirabello.
“Working together with Grip Digital, we’ve taken everything we liked about Tower of Guns and amped it up while also making major improvements to all the stuff we didn’t like. The result is an even bigger and better game in Mothergunship and with Sold Out’s help we want to reach the biggest audience possible.”
