Deadly, Beautiful Competitive Shooter Serves Up Precise, Merciless Gunslinging

VANCOUVER, Canada – Oct. 13, 2015 Early Access ain’t big enough for the ten of them – the gruff, gimlet-eyed gunslingers of Secret Ponchos: Most Wanted today rode into their official Steam launch. Originally released on PlayStation 4, Secret Ponchos is a competitive isometric shooter that entrenches highly precise combat and strategic team play into a gorgeous, hand-drawn Western setting. Expanded over a period of ten months, the Most Wanted edition packs in a ton of new content, including new game modes, improved gameplay mechanics, new maps, and more than double the original roster of colorful characters. You can find Secret Ponchos: Most Wanted on Steam for $14.99, and for launch week only you can buy it with a 25% launch discount.

A brand new launch trailer for Secret Ponchos: Most Wanted is available today, featuring the gunslingers in all their hand-drawn glory:

Secret Ponchos: Most Wanted is a competitive multiplayer chimera: at its core it is a highly precise and mechanically tight fighting game, but it also incorporates elements of MOBAs and team-based shooters, swathing them all in a gorgeous, impressionistic art style to create hair-trigger action that is both strategic and stylish. The game’s gunplay is as quick and ruthless as its cast of characters; there’s no auto-aiming or target locking, so every shot is a skill shot, and players will need to keep careful tabs on their stamina and ammo throughout every firefight.

The game features ten different outlaws, each with his or her own motivations, movement style, and unique powers. Because Switchblade Monkeys is a studio founded by artists and driven by artistic vision, each character’s motions are animated individually to suit their personality and combat style: from the Matador’s sweeping, showy stances to the Wolf’s feral, loping prowl to Gordo’s solid, heavy-set swagger.

“We never imagined our game would reach this many people – we’re a studio founded by artists and musicians, working out of our kitchens and our bedrooms on the ultimate six-year passion project,” said Switchblade Monkeys’ Creative Director, Yousuf Mapara. “But with the help of countless hours of playtesting by our amazing community, we’ve managed to build something entirely unique, a game with both brains and brawn: mechanically precise, meticulously balanced, lovingly hand-drawn, savagely competitive, and (we think!) incredibly fun.”
