Who doesn't love writing or saying the word "titular"? And with Devolver Digital and Doinksoft's upcoming noire-punk action-adventure title, Gunbrella, we get to say it as much as we like, because the game's titular weapon drives its narrative, action and overall style.
And while we won't see it on either Nintendo Switch or PC until sometime in 2023, today's reveal trailer and small snippets of information have us pretty keen to get all warm and cozy with the game, and it's titular weapon.
Here's what you'll be playing:
Gunbrella; a noir-punk action-adventure set in a world dependent on a rapidly diminishing natural resource. Kinda like real life but with more rainproof weaponry. Gunbrella will glide onto PC and Nintendo Switch in 2023.
Players take the role of a gruff woodsman on a quest for revenge, armed with the mysterious Gunbrella: a firearm that doubles as an umbrella. His investigation becomes entangled with the inner workings of ghouls and gangsters, cops and cultists, and the fallout of corporate exploitation.
Engage in side-scrolling action combat while exploring a diverse assortment of locations and interrogating bizarre characters. Use the Gunbrella to glide, swing, dash, and dive, and gather scrap and spare parts to trade for different munitions and upgrades. Investigate cult kidnappings and trash gangs, and uncover the mysteries of the supernatural as wraiths and monstrosities materialise in places where blood has been shed…
What's not to love, and the frenetic nature of the trailer above has us thinking this is also the thinking umbrella owner's type of game, full of tactical recourse and twitch-style platforming and gunplay.
