Gunpoint’s Release Date’s Release Date’s Release Date

An Announcement

I will be announcing the release date of Gunpoint’s release date here tomorrow, Sunday the 26th of May.

To be clear, this is not an announcement of Gunpoint’s release date, nor is it an announcement of Gunpoint’s release date’s release date. It is an announcement of Gunpoint’s release date’s release date’s release date.

Update: We have been delighted with the community’s empassioned reaction to this announcement. These are just some of the high user-engagement social media interactions we have already logged:

“you’re a mean person”
@blaquened

“You’re a bad person”
@Nelsormensch

“This is bad and you should FEEL bad.”
@SJRB__

"The release date's release date is in one minute."
"The release date is tomorrow."
