Facepunch Studios launches Chippy, a twin-stick bullet-hell shooter, which is available on Steam. This elegant arcade game, brought to you by the developers behind cult favourites Rust and Garry’s Mod, presents players with competitive challenges, with the aim to dodge, shoot and ultimately destroy 14 multi-form bosses, fighting their way to the top of the leaderboard.
Chippy’s huge retro-style bosses rain down ridiculous amounts of firepower. Players will need to destroy them by slicing off bigger and bigger sections, piece by piece, pixel-by-pixel, until their core is annihilated. It’s fast. It’s difficult. You’ll die a lot (Facepunch want you to).
This frenetic game doesn’t waste time on arduous cutscenes; instead players get right into the action with a fast, skippable tutorial – no frills, no fuss.
Gamers can also:
- Choose to play offensively or defensively, based on skill level, assisted by a variety of powerups
- Watch replays with slow motion and fast forward while also being able to hijack and take control of other players replays
- Comment on the action
Facepunch Studios is renowned for hit games Rust – the iconic survival guide with an army of faithful fans, – and Garry’s Mod (GMod) – one of the most influential sandbox games of the last 20 years – which have featured highly on the Steam charts over many years. Its wider portfolio of projects includes Chunks, a block-based sandbox game built for virtual reality, and Clatter, a turn-based arena tactics game for customisable squads of fighting robots.
