Description

Load your guns! Rain death from above! Protect your valuable orphans! Defeat giant, improbable bosses! Gunhouse is part puzzle, part active tower defense, as you make big combos to launch a hail of bullets and special attacks at the enemies who would like nothing better than to consume your delicious orphan friends. It's a kind of turn-based puzzle game, with a mechanic we haven't seen anywhere else, and a bit of an action-y thing besides. Our unique art style is courtesy of Juan Ramirez, we've got music by Fez composer Disasterpeace, code by Jim Crawford (he made Frog Fractions), as well as Shane Marks and Takashi S. Omoto, and design and production by Brandon Sheffield. It's a game!~

History

This game sure does have a weird history. It began life as a jam game for the first Molyjam. It was based on the Peter Molydeux tweet, You live in a little house made of guns. You need many guns to fight invaders but also need to keep a roof on top of your many children. When Necrosoft Games was figuring out what projects to make first, Gunhouse was a natural fit, since we had a game jam prototype already!

Features

  • Sumptuous block-sliding!
  • Dastardly tower defending!
