From Press Release:
13th February 2019, Dueren, Germany – Strap on your revolver and keep the hammer cocked, Hoss – welcome to the West! Headup announces Colt Canyon, developed by Retrific Game Studio, to be released in Q3 2019 for PC, Nintendo Switch™, PlayStation®4 and Xbox One.
Colt Canyon is a stylish 2D pixel art twin-stick shooter with roguelike elements in which you control a cowboy (or a cowgirl!), whose mission it is to save his kidnapped partner from ruthless bandits. Take your revolver, knife and TNT and shoot your way through a hostile canyon full of hidden treasures, weapons, obstacles and all kinds of bloodthirsty scum. Perhaps you can save more people than just your beloved one. You can also enjoy Colt Canyon with a friend by playing its 2P local co-op mode.
With permadeath, roguelike gameplay and many unlockable characters,Colt Canyon offers high replayability value: Every run is different.
Though the canyon’s basic layout is handcrafted, everything else is randomised. You can explore the levels to find new weapons, ammo and kidnapped people or prisoners who you can rescue to earn upgrades – some are even willing to help you on your mission. Through specific actions you can unlock new characters, starting loadouts and more to make your next run easier or tougher.
