The video game Squirrel with a Gun, which is about a squirrel with a weapon, will soon be available on Steam.
To be clear, it doesn’t carry a gun the size of a squirrel but rather a typical human-scale firearm that it can use to steal from people, crack riddles, and ostensibly combat masked government operatives. The video game Squirrel with a Gun seems to be about precisely what it sounds like
At least in the teaser, which is posted above and is also available on YouTube, it does that.
Though it may have begun as a prank, the game is now obviously real, and independent developer Daniel DeEntremont has created a Steam page for it.
In what seems to be a very typical suburban area, it will concentrate on silly shooting and action fighting, as well as adventurous puzzle-solving.
You could already leap quite a distance as a squirrel, but you’ll be capable of performing some crazy training flights if you use the recoil of a gun. You can use these abilities to loot the locals or, if you want, assist them with tasks in exchange for compensation.
That would be about all I can offer at this moment because, to be honest, the idea is quite tenuous, and, if you aren’t already on board, you likely won’t suddenly become so.
Squirrel with a Gun is available on Steam, and Daniel DeEntremont, the game’s creator, is on Twitter. I have no idea if this is the newest Goat Simulator or something,
but I do understand that it made me giggle so loud that I’ll purchase it when it comes out as a token of appreciation for a dedicated independent developer. Squirrel with a Gun will be published on “Valid question!” as of right now.
