'Huntdown' (ALL) Now Available On Steam And GOG

by Rainier on May 12, 2021 @ 1:06 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 is releasing its arcade shooter on Steam and for $19.99, with a one week 20% launch discount.

Huntdown’s new arcade mode 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; kicking criminals off the rooftops; 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. Arcade mode is now available on Steam, GOG and Epic Games Store, and will be available on all other platforms shortly. 

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

Tommy Gustafsson, Co-Founder and Director at Easy Trigger commented: “We’ve been so excited to bring old and new fans of Huntdown new content to show off their bounty hunting skills. We’re also delighted to be able to bring the multiplayer Huntdown experience to players unable to meet up with their buddies in person. We can’t wait to see the battle break out for top spot on the Steam global leaderboard!”
