Origins and early Game Jam Prototype

After enjoying creating Probably Archery last year during the 7DFPS (Seven Day First Person Shooter) game jam and then being fortunate enough to release a larger version on Steam, we wanted to create something even bigger and more creative during this years jam. The result was Paint the Town Red, a brutal first person melee fighting game. In the version we developed in 7 days (available from the links below), you take part in a huge bar brawl where anything you can get your hands on is a weapon and can be used to slice, bludgeon, sever and stab.


The Full Version

When the game started coming together in the final couple of days of the jam, we really fell in love with it. There are so many more ideas, environments, weapons, etc we want to add so we decided we'd put the game on Greenlight in the hopes that we can get the game into Early Access and work with the community to build on the unique gameplay in the game.

The full version will include:
  • Many more levels and environments
  • Hundreds of unique weapons
  • More ways to use and throw weapons
  • Competitive multiplayer
  • Co-op multiplayer
  • Story progression through the levels
  • More movement options (e.g. vaulting, basic climbing, etc)

Please vote and help get the game greenlit sooner by spreading the word. #PaintTheTownRed


Q: Why do you want to put the game in Early Access?
A: Last year we made and released Probably Archery on Steam based on a game jam game. We had limited time and resources to make the full version and weren't able to spend the time with the community we'd have liked to to iterate on the design. With Paint the Town Red, we'll have more time to develop the game and its design fits better with an iterative roll-out of content. It's also more conducive to change and the addition of new features based on community feedback. With the game jam version already complete, we can get up and running quickly on Early Access and start adding more content straight away.

Q: Will there be guns in the game?
A: Probably in some limited capacity. Any guns would likely have very limited ammunition and would be a rare, special item or something a tougher enemy might have.

Q: Will feature X of the game jam version be fixed/improved/removed?
A: If it's something that needs to be then it will be. Making a game that large in 7 days is very difficult so there are lots of elements large and small we'd immediately improve and add to.
