REDSHOT is the brainchild and first game from the sole indie developer Brian Lynch. A 28-year-old musician and programmer working out of Philadelphia, PA, Brian has been working on the bullet-time metroidvania game REDSHOT for over 7 years after teaching himself how to program and design games.The latest in the slate of fast-paced bullet-time 2D-shooters, REDSHOT will certainly be an exciting title.
Taking place over a vast non-linear world, REDSHOT is a bullet-time metroidvania game where everything wants to kill you, and you need to save ‘the royal city’ from total destruction. You can choose from a multitude of weapons and items to outwit over 30 enemy types and over a dozen bosses. The vast world also hides many secrets that will allow you to upgrade your abilities and equipment.
An official game description reads; ‘After crash landing on a fringe planet on the outer edges of the galaxy, Jack “Goose” Redshot is given a mission to rescue the royal family of the city of Carcosa from a mysterious supernatural invader, who has laid siege to the city and its inhabitants. With over 200 rooms to explore and many weapons, items, and secrets to find, fans of the genre will find a challenging but fair adventure to be had in REDSHOT.’
