Engage in one-on-one duels or all-out gunfights as one of several unique and customizable outlaws – each with his or her own strengths, weapon types, special moves and play styles – in a game that rewards tactical awareness, precision timing and player skill. Add in melee attacks, an original line-of-sight mechanic, cover fire, destructible cover objects and more, and Secret Ponchos is a game with exceptional depth.
When the team at Switchblade Monkeys began development of the game, they left behind the overtly corporate, money-driven world of commercial game development and set out to create something of a passion project between a group of friends. They studied elements from their favorite games, including team shooters, fighting games and isometric action-RPGs, as well as the style and flair of graphic novels and classic spaghetti westerns, to create a game they could call their own.
Secret Ponchos has now hit Steam Early Access ahead of the PS4 launch.
To encourage players to get into the game nice and early - thus helping to ensure the final game is as good as it can be - the team is offering a 20% discount (from $14.99 to $11.24), as well as a Posse Pack that gets you four copies for the price of three.
