Dan Marshall’s spiritual successor to side-on deathmatch shooter Gibbage has hit Steam for the princely sum of £6.29.
Gun Monkeys casts you as… look, I’ll just copy/paste the blurb, shall I? You won’t believe me otherwise.
In Gun Monkeys, you’ll take charge of a modern-day power company. In the distant future, a catastrophic experiment into Perpetual Energy obliterates all human life, leaving the world choc-full of free-for-the-taking energy, but unpleasantly lacking in people to take advantage of it. Your job as CEO is to send a legion of pleasingly-expendable monkeys forwards in time to collect Power Cubes and return them to present-day, all from the comfort of your PC.
What this means is that you take control of a gun-wielding primate, equip it with a variety of perks, and shoot your friends in 1v1 battles across procedurally-generated platform-happy levels. Have a look at the announcement trailer below, and if it looks like it’s your cup of tea, pop over to Steam to pick it up.
