Gunpoint is a stealth puzzle game that lets you rewire its levels to trick people. This video will explain it.

No! Don't tell them my scheme!
There's now a mailing list for people who'd like to be told when it's out, and what we do in future. Join it why not!
I tweet news, shots of things I'm working on, and despair at the complexity of coding.
Here's the formal permission bit.
Every aspect of its clever design, laugh-out-loud noir story, tiny but expressive art, and moody music work harmoniously with one another.
A framework for a puzzler that rewards cleverness and convoluted sadism in equal measure. JC Denton would be proud.
UNITED KINGDOM – April 1, 2012 - Intense creative re-focussing has led Gunpoint to be re-invented as a 3rd person cover shooter.
“We’re going to make a lot more money this way”, says morally bankrupt CEO.

Zardilann: Any chance for a legacy-edition game that comes with the Collector's Edition? Else I'll take some day one DLC! Looking forward to the game coming out.
Southbound: I, for one, am pleased to see the developer finally listening to reason and taking the path far well traveled. I shall be buying this the very day it sees release and also all the Day 1 dlc. Bravo, here is all my money.
Crane: I came expecting an april fools joke, I got a really good april fools joke.
Rei Onryou: I'm looking forward to the retailer specific pre-order DLC packs.
Chris: Personally, I'm highly anticipating the hastily added multiplayer, and of course the multiplayer store.
In particular, I want to make a lot of micro-transactions in order to buy anything remotely worth playing with - maybe even some pay-to-win stuff!
Dave: That is a beautiful piece of 3D pixel art. Nice work.
Meepmeepmeep: I would so play this! Now i'm actually disappointed this is only a joke.
Daedolon: Why joke with things that people would seriously want?
oyog: I'm really looking forward to the cover system, linear levels and simple gunplay.
So few games have those features these days.
Jason L: Utter incompetence, you've given players a hat for free!
Jason L: How many organs can be crosslinked to each other?
IVI4tt: I look forwards to the neat colour-coordinated endings
Anonymous: Shooter? No, no, more stealth action, like Splinter Cell: Conviction.
(Seriously, can you imagine how awesome GP might be in 3D if handled correctly?)
What: Does it have large quantities of bloom which could kill an elephant at 20 paces? If so, I'LL TAKE IT!
Brandon B: I would actually buy this if it was 3rd P
Anonymous: This has to be a limited edition bonus desktop wallpaper.
Carson: Wait is regular gunpoint gonnas be there too????!
Greyhaven: Hmmmm, is there anyway we can get that picture in 3D? Like a Stereoscopic (side-by-side)Hi Res Version? That would be cool for a dual (duel?) monitor background!
