From Press Release:
Warsaw, March 30, 2023 – Independent game developer Kool2Play is proud to announce that after careful consideration of EA launch and precious feedback from our players, the team worked really hard to pivot Uragun into a roguelite and it proved to be a better fit for our game. Everything that players loved about Uragun (super tight controls, fun and exciting combat, clever level design etc) is now supported with a bunch of mechanics that support replayability and Uragun is more fun than ever!
After a total gameplay makeover directed by Fran Avilés (previously responsible for Deep Rock Galactic) as Game Director, Kool2Play can finally present their final version and ultimately fun action-packed roguelite shooter. The launch trailer of the game can be found here!
In Uragun you play as a charming Mech unit that has awakened to discover a world overrun by corrupted AI. Choose your path and rewards allowing you to research new skills, mod your Mech and its weapons and grow stronger. And yes, you can also play with your Mech looks!
The search for your missing pilot friend will bring you to different spectacular locations where the impact of the AI upraising changed the world as we know it. Every fight will take place in a selected location of this beautiful and devastated world. Your quest will bring you to places like a deserted Barcelona, Industrialized Nairobi, the mines hidden in the snowy mountain rifts of North America or an overgrown and futuristic Hong Kong.
Once the Mech is defeated, it will be reprinted on the Orbital Station that acts as your main hub. Modifications for weapons and other perks will be gone. However, the Intel that you have collected will be useful here to acquire permanent upgrades from the Research Tree. These upgrades will increase your survivability, attack or add some nice extras for the run in the form of Expansion Cartridges. However, not all of them can be equipped at once since your Memory capacity is limited. You’ll have to choose Expansion Cartridges wisely based on your preferred playstyle and strategy. Luckily, Memory capacity can also be increased, giving you a chance of stacking more of the Expansion Cartridges in the future.
During a run, the Mech unit can be improved in different ways. Plugins will add new skills, improve some of the stats or enhance your special Heat Attacks. They can be leveled up for an even stronger effect. Additionally, weapon mods are special effects that can be equipped on weapons with available slots. Experiment with their effects on every weapon type and combine them to create your favorite build. More than one weapon mod of the same type can be stacked to increase the intensity of the effects.
At launch game will be available in Polish, English, Spanish, German, French, Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese Simplified, Japanese, Korean and Turkish.
We know it may seem like we went under the radar for a while, but the truth is, that we worked really hard to pivot Uragun into a roguelite – said Mariusz Leśniewski, the Head of Studio at Kool2Play. We are super happy to be back with the final product and share it now with you and our players as we think our game really shines now!
