Searching for eternal life, you dabbled in the occult and summoned forces beyond your understanding, forces whose names should never be uttered -- and your actions ended with mighty Cthulhu himself swallowing your city whole.

But this odd situation has given you the chance to destroy him from within. 

The final version of the game will feature:

  • Acrobatic Rogue-lite shooting action!

  • Over 50 hideous enemies and menacing bosses.

  • A varied arsenal of weapons and more than 300 upgrades to choose your play style.

  • A procedurally generated world to explore and discover, including interactive elements to use at your advantage.

  • Challenges, rewards, unlocks… and more surprises.

Madshot will enter Steam Early Access on 9th June, 2022 with a SRP of $19.99/ €19.99/ £17.99. Fans can wishlist the game on Steam now.
