Following the successful launch of Twisted Pixel’s The Gunstringer as a Kinect exclusive title on Xbox 360, Microsoft Studio are clearly keen to build a franchise out of the intellectual property (IP). This is evidenced by the launch of a Windows 8 spin-off, The Gunstringer: Dead Man Running, available to download now.
Essentially a cross between the modern endless running genre and the original Crash Bandicoot titles, The Gunstringer: Dead Man Running is a fast-paced action videogame that incorporates skilled shooting with a level driven story mode. As the legendary Gunstringer, players sprint through three sprawling, old west inspired, locations that span across fifteen levels. But as the ol’ saying goes, if you climb in the saddle, be ready for the ride.
Developed by Other Ocean Interactive, The Gunstringer is available to download for Windows 8 devices now and is the first Xbox branded title that demands players have motion-control input devices, such as gyroscopes built into the Surface tablets. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest Xbox branded videogames launching on Windows 8.
