Set in a post-apocalyptic Wild West overrun by villainy, in this action-packed twin-stick roguelite shooter you play as the mysterious gunslinger as he sets out on an epic quest.
You can expect twitch-trigger precision gunplay, armies of menacing robots and incredible boss fights, with unlockable abilities, thousands of unique weapons, and game-changing performance boosts – all of which will transform your hero into an unstoppable force.
The publisher has outlined the game’s key features as below:

Upgrade your gunslinger with 24 unique skills that fundamentally change the way the game plays.
- Death Is Only The Beginning: An action-packed 10-plus-hour campaign awaits for those daring enough to accept the challenge!
