Size Five Games, an indie developer that has received a BAFTA award for Privates, a free-to-play platform twin-stick shooter has today unveiled Gun_Monkeys, a game described as a “procedurally –Generated, physics-based, online deathmatch platform game”.

“I needed a break from my next game, The Swindle,” ( a steampunk physics-based platformer) said Size Five’s Chief Executive of Game Development, Dan Marshall. “I’d been working so hard on it for so long I was becoming frustrated, creatively. I decided to take a break and remake the very first game I ever made. The result, heavily tweaked, is Gun_Monkeys.”


In Gun_Monkeys you will take charge of a modern-day power company. “In the distant future, a catastrophic experiment into Perpetual Energy obliterates all human life, leaving the world choc-full of free-for-the-taking energy. Your job is to send a legion of pleasingly-expendable monkeys forwards in time to collect Power Cubes and return them to present-day, all from the comfort of your PC”, reads the game’s description.

Gun_Monkeys will be available on PC, Mac and Linux this Summer.
