THE GAME

Easy to learn, 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.


OVERVIEW

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

  • POWERUP IMBUED: Change your murdering tactics in an instant! Designed by the megacorporations, they allow you to move faster, drop bombs, fire more projectiles, home-in on enemies and much more!



COMBAT
  • 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: 360º 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.

MODES

A CYBERPUNK SOUNDSCAPE

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


THE WORLD OF GUNKATANA

The Gunkatana death matches weren’t always the slaughterfest-spectacle they are today.

Some remember when it was different, when Gunkatana meant uprising and revolution. In the velas, the city’s neglected shantytowns, riots turned violent as inhabitants fought for rights and citizenship. Back then, Gunkatana meant ​freedom.

Then the megacorporations co-opted the concept and now sell it for profit. It has become a way of steering unrest and opposition into the right channels. They’re siphoning off the most violent and charismatic rebels.

Not all is lost, though. Among those training to fight, a feeling of dissent is growing stronger. But the corporation doesn’t plan on releasing its grip on Gunkatana anytime soon…


ADDITIONAL INFO

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.

We hope you enjoy your murdering experience with Gunkatana. Give us your feedback and ideas for the game, we're listening and will take them into account!

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

If you can't wait to get your metaphorical cyber claws on the gamepad and start killing your friends with impunity, lend us your katana! Help us with our upcoming Kickstarter campaign! We'll unleash it onto the cyberweb in the coming days, so stay tuned for the announcement!

Gunkatana is kinda like if Hotline Miami & Doom multiplayer had a child and geeked it up on a gallon of Jolt Cola.

The gameplay is pretty straight forward: kill the others before they kill you. You have a melee attack and a ranged laser blast for offense, and your defense is a good offense. While the laser can help in corridors, the melee can deflect the lasers, which will make your ranged attacks useless most of the time.

Graphically, it's beautiful. The dystopian cyberpunk futuristic style kinda gives off a 1980's sort of feel. It's flashy without being too busy, eye catching while still being easy on the eyes.

The music and sound effects are great. The controls are tight and responsive.

Overall, this is a brilliant alpha build for what's sure to be a stellar title.
