It's the last day of Epic's Mega Sale, and today Epic has put forth Enter the Gungeon for its weekly giveaway, replacing Kingdom: New Lands. Indeed, weekly, as Epic has now decided to convert this formerly bi-weekly giveaway streak into weekly, for the entirety of 2019.
A bullet-hell shooter with rogue-like elements, Enter the Gungeon was originally released in April of 2017, developed by Dodge Roll. It is often compared with The Binding of Isaac due to its gameplay similarities. It also features a two-player local-only co-op mode.
Enter the Gungeon was received positively by gamers and critics alike, selling over 200,000 copies across all platforms within the launch week; by March this year, it had sold over 2 million copies. Here's how the Epic Games Store describes the title:
Enter the Gungeon is a bullet hell dungeon crawler following a band of misfits seeking to shoot, loot, dodge roll and table-flip their way to personal absolution by reaching the legendary Gungeon’s ultimate treasure: the gun that can kill the past. Select a hero (or team up in co-op) and battle your way to the bottom of the Gungeon by surviving a challenging and evolving series of floors filled with the dangerously adorable Gundead and fearsome Gungeon bosses armed to the teeth. Gather precious loot, discover hidden secrets, and chat with opportunistic merchants and shopkeepers to purchase powerful items to gain an edge.
Epic Games Store is offering the title at no cost for players on Windows and macOS. It's worth noting, however, that the game is also available on Linux via Steam, where it is currently priced at $14.99. Also available on Steam is the game's Collector's Edition, containing its soundtrack, a digital comic, and the microtransaction gun that humorously adds a pay-to-win element to the game.
Here are the minimum requirements for the game:
- OS: Windows 7 or later / macOS 10.6 or later
- Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E6320 (2*1866) or equivalent
- Graphics: GeForce 7600 GS (512 MB) or equivalent
- Memory: 2GB RAM
- Storage: 2GB HDD
