Description
Release date: Early 2016
Download Gear Gauntlet Demo Here [drop-dead-interactive.itch.io]
(N.B Difficulty ramps up fast to reflect levels from all worlds.)

// Overview //
(N.B Please download and play the demo, you will be hooked)

Imagine a crazy combination of the original Sonic’s bonus stages, Super Meat Boy without the platforming & Guitar Hero and you’re kind of there.
Gear Gauntlet is a challenging twitch based side scroller that will put you through your paces. Don’t take your eye off that ball or you will meet certain fate.

Don’t concern yourself with enemies or the fate of the world, simply focus on you.
Gear Gauntlet is an evolution of time trials with your ability to focus on the task at hand being the only thing that will get you through to the end.

Think you are fast? Think again! Or better yet, prove it on the Gear Gauntlet leader-boards. Test skills, reflexes, memory and perseverance on some of the most grueling, non-stop gauntlets you will ever face.

At the end of it all, you can check to see just who on your friends list has been able to not only beat the gauntlet – but also beat YOU!

// Features //
* Fast, intense, action guaranteed to keep you on edge.
* 4 Gauntlets with 10 uniquely designed levels of brutality.
* Beautiful hand drawn watercolour art style.
* 80+ global / friends leaderboards to track best times and scores.
* Bonus game Marathon Hunt, just more addictive fun to be had at no extra cost.

// Back Story //
Gear Gauntlet (GG) originally slated for just the Xbox One has been requested to be brought to PC via steam so here we are :) .

As the development team is tiny and is made up of developer jay "@BytesOfChicken" Adeloye and level designer Steven "@CitizenSleeve" Smith of whom both of us are making the game in our spare time. For this reason GG currently works best with a controller but with your help and votes we can put the proper love and attention the game needs to make it a 1st class experience on PC/MAC/Linux.

// Controls //

Use the face buttons (press and hold) on a 360 controller to change the player to the same colour on the face button to match and break through the coloured square barriers you will see.

Button A = Green (Down Arrow)
Button B = Red (Right Arrow)
Button X = Blue (Left Arrow)
Button Y = Yellow (Up Arrow)

Left thumbstick movement (WASD on keyboard)
(N.B Keyboard mappings will be properly implemented if successfully greenlit.)
