With more than 10 million downloads, Gumslinger is now celebrating its 2 year anniversary with a mega update. Leagues, Quests, Friends, Leaderboards and an Endgame for the most shining stars are just a few examples of what is included in the brand new Gumslinger 3.0 update.

The last few months have been quite intense for the Itatake team, with Gumslinger becoming winner of Google Play’s Indie Games Festival in September and the Itatake studio being handpicked for Google’s Indie Games Accelerator with a big focus on Gumslinger. This focus, combined with the growth and continuous player feedback, is why the development of Gumslinger 3.0 started earlier this year.

‒ ‘We have made more than 30 updates since we first launched Gumslinger’ says Itatake’s Mattias Granat. ‘That means a lot of added content and features that wasn’t available two years ago, and this update is by far the biggest we have ever done! We are keeping the core gameplay-fun but have redesigned the way you progress and added a bunch of different quests and improvements to maximize the entertainment, always putting our players first.’

There are four major leagues (Bronze, Silver, Gold and Star) with different sub-leagues and leaderboards to make it fun to compare your results and progression with others, and in the new Friend mode you can beat your friends and send them friendly taunts. All together, this update amplifies what Gumslinger is all about; crazy duels and intense shootouts against characters made of sweet jelly.

‒ ‘We have also reworked the user interface from 2D to 3D which I think the players will appreciate a lot. Now you really get to see and feel the Gumslingers in all their jellyness!’, Mattias continues.

Gumslinger is free to download on the App Store and Google Play.
