Artificer and Good Shepherd Entertainment have released a new gameplay trailer for Showgunners, the game previously known as Homicidal All-Stars. The teams say that Showgunners is inspired by its favourite action movies of the 80s, 90s, and early 2000s, and sticks you in a reality game show where “the only thing greater than the stakes are the thrills”.

“This game began as a love letter to the outrageous sci-fi action movies of the 1980s, and we wanted a new title that truly honors its reality show roots while highlighting its fast-paced strategy and gameplay,” said Kacper Szymczak, CEO/Creative Director at Artificer. “So, welcome to Showgunners! We love our new name, we’re incredibly proud of everything we’ve put into the game, and we hope you’re as excited for its upcoming launch as we are”.
Showgunners is coming to PC (via Steam) on May 2nd, 2023.
