'Secret Ponchos' (ALL) Gets PC Date

by Rainier on Aug. 20, 2015 @ 9:09 a.m. PDT

Secret Ponchos blurs the line between gameplay genres and conventions and creates its own original feel for multiplayer combat that pits players against each other in intense Wild West battle.

Secret Ponchos is a stylized, gorgeously rendered isometric battle arena featuring 10 unique playable outlaws - double the original roster. The game is mercilessly competitive, forcing players to rely on hair-trigger reflexes, precision shooting, and split-second decisions to survive.  Lone-wolf duelists can take on combattants in high-stakes 1v1 showdowns, while team players can form their own outlaw gangs and combine their unique powers to establish dominance over the brutal town of Lonetree.
Each playable outlaw has his or her own unique playstyle. The evasive and deadly Matador sweeps enemies aside with her sword and swashbuckling style; Phantom Poncho can pull in his nemeses with a bullwhip and then finish them with a shotgun-slug to the face; the feral Wolf relies on her fearsome agility to savage her foes. Secret Ponchos does not reward run-and-gun recklessness: players must rely on strategy and timing as much as hair-trigger reflexes in order to survive.

Barreling into a room full of flying bullets is a quick path to a coffin. With Secret Ponchos' cover-mechanics, outlaws can duck behind everything from tables and walls to dirty bars to disappear from their opponent's sight while still being visible to teammates; perfect for setting up ambushes.

Key Features

  • Top-down, PvP shooter for 2-8 players.
