And it’s a “bullet hell dungeon climber”.
Developer Dodge Roll’s sublime bullet hell dungeon crawler, Enter the Dungeon, is getting a spin-off! It’s called – wait for it – Exit the Dungeon, and it’ll coming to Apple Arcade “soon”.
According to publisher Devolver Digital, Exit the Gungeon is a joint project by Dodge Rolland developer Singlecore Games, and reworks the original game’s critically acclaimed top-down dungeoneering action into what’s being referred to as a “bullet hell dungeon climber”.
“The Gungeon has become a paradox and is collapsing!,” exclaims Exit the Gungeon’s release announcement. “Armed with an ever-changing weapon, an insatiable need to loot, and the trusty dodge roll, each of our heroes must ascend and escape via their own unique route of increasingly perilous elevators.”
There’ll be plenty of Gundead to battle against, plus a few familiar faces to encounter, with Devolver promising “shifting rooms, enemies, bosses, bizarre weapons and items” for what sounds like an altogether more horizontal take on Enter the Gungeon’s procedurally generated action. Oh, and you can wear hats.
Exit the Gungeon will be debuting “soon” on Apple’s new gaming subscription service, Apple Arcade, meaning it’ll be playable on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and Mac. There’s no word on whether it’s likely to make its way to other platforms at a later date.
