Hello Xbox gamers! I’m excited to share with you a little about Mothergunship, a frantic hybrid first-person shooter. It’s the product of a close collaboration between Terrible Posture Games and Grip Digital, and it pits you against hordes of sinister robots as you fight through randomly generated ships, working your way towards the ultimate challenge: the Mothergunship itself.
You take on the role of one of the last members of a resistance against an invasion of data-hoarding robotic aliens. They’ve taken Earth and now you have to take it back, one enemy ship at a time, dodging through innumerable waves of bullets and squaring off against some of the largest bosses ever seen in an FPS. The action gets pretty over the top, and in order to have the slimmest chance of survival you’re going to need some mighty firepower. That’s where crafting comes in.
Crafting is one of the most unique parts of Mothergunship, and it takes a much more modular approach than many games these days. This allows for unprecedented freedom to create some truly mind boggling weapons. There are no “recipes” to be found here, nor is crafting restricted to explicit, limited, attachments. Instead we offer an expansive library of gun parts to collect, and all these can be snapped together, one to another, to make truly awesome Frankenstein guns that defy all logic or reason. In more serious FPS games this would look absurd, but Mothergunship embraces that insanity and let’s the player really go wild.
In addition to the crazy combat and crazier crafting, Mothergunship invites you to battle through the entire game with a friend, in a frantic co-op experience, with a few unique twists that we’re keeping quiet about for now. I hope you guys like what you see and I’m looking forward to sharing more! Please follow along at Facebook, Twitter and our official website as we continue developing the game.
