'Huntdown' (ALL) Gets Steam Date, Adds Arcade Mode And Remote Play - Trailer

by Rainier on April 7, 2021 @ 1:46 p.m. PDT

Challenge yourselves in this 1980s hard-boiled co-op arcade shooter as you run, jump and take cover in mayhem streets of the future.

Crack criminal skulls, poach felons and watch them fry in this hard boiled action comedy arcade shooter.

The 16-bit platformer offers partners in cleansing crime the option to hunt in pairs with local co-op, or go lone wolf in the mean streets of mayhem. Set in a bleak dystopian future where sadistic gangs rule and cops fear to tread, only three legendary bounty hunters have the arsenal and killer instincts to take back the city from the corrupt fist of felony.

Inspired by the action movies and pop culture of the 80s with a gritty, violent twist, Huntdown is an old school arcade side scroller for the modern bounty hunter. The slick platformer features hand painted 16-bit pixel art graphics and hand-drawn animations, combined with fluid action-packed 60-FPS gameplay and an epic 80s soundtrack pumping dark wave, industrial synth, hard rock and electro through 20 unique levels.

Make a healthy living — by making living unhealthy.

Kill the henchmen, take the guns and Huntdown their leaders!

Following Huntdown’s launch to consoles, and exclusively to the Epic Games Store for PC, Coffee Stain announced is bringing its arcade shooter on Steam on May 12, 2021.

Steam players will have exclusive first access to the new Arcade game mode dropping on the same date, and fight crime with friends online with Steam Remote Play.

This new way to enjoy Huntdown brings the much-loved competitive experience of old school arcades to players everywhere. The new score-based game mode sees players face off on the global leaderboard for top spot, by completing missions in the most creatively violent way possible! Multi-kills; quickdraw weapon-swap bonuses; screaming bloody murder as you kick criminals off a rooftop; these will all add up as players compete for the title of apex bounty hunter. In addition to the regular chaos, players will be facing the hordes with a range of over-the-top weapons trying to collect as many bounties as possible against the clock.

Exclusively for the Steam community, players will now be able to enjoy this with friends remotely, with the Remote Play Together feature.

Tommy Gustafsson, Director and Co-Founder of Easy Trigger commented on the launch: “We have been blown away by the passion the Steam community has had for our game since launch, and we are pumped to be bringing Huntdown to the platform with some awesome new features. The new competitive features open up all sorts of opportunities for rip-roaring chaos, and we can’t wait to let players across all platforms get their hands on it!”

Albert Säfström, CEO of Coffee Stain Publishing commented: “Huntdown is a perfect example of what the Coffee Stain community has come to expect from us — a great game created by an incredibly passionate team. The glowing reviews Huntdown received last year really speak for themselves, and this latest update gives fans even more to get excited about.”
