The next game from Joe Mirabello (Tower of Guns) was just announced. Mothergunship, a Bullethell FPS, has you playing your way through the belly of the beast as you craft weapons and resist against the alien onslaught. The trailer’s certainly impressive, and it should be out later this year on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Just be prepared to dance, pilgrim. This ain’t your ordinary corridor and cover shooter.
From the release:
The next project from Joe Mirabello, honing the core of his previous work into an insanely fast-paced, expansive genre blend that will test your bullet dancing skills and FPS proficiency. Get yourself some DOOM gameplay vibes and fight your way to the heart of the fleet to destroy it all!
Fight – Face off against overwhelming odds in brutal, non-stop combat where thinking on your feet is the only way to survive. Dodge hundreds of bullets with unique FPS/Bullet-hell hybrid gameplay. Each ship hosts hordes of alien machines, deadly traps, and intimidating bosses, all set on preventing you from saving humanity. Go get ‘em.
Craft – To take down the MOTHERGUNSHIP, you’ll need your very own personalized arsenal of destruction. Luckily, in MOTHERGUNSHIP you can create the gun of your dreams with one of the most modular gun-crafting systems ever seen in a video game. Want to have twelve-barrel gun that shoots homing rockets? Or do you prefer a lightning shotgun? And what gun wouldn’t look better with a fish tank affixed to the top? Go for it! The design of your destructive arsenal is in your hands.
Resist – Join the ranks of the global resistance movement and take back Earth together with your friends. Fight together with a friend in a full CO-OP experience, or participate with the community while you work together to cut through the alien fleet and reach that ultimate goal – bringing down the MOTHERGUNSHIP.
