OUYA Publishing announced today the expanded release of “ChargeShot.” Originally launched for PC on Steam by indie developer Cowboy Color, the futuristic fantasy-deathmatch game is the second multi-platform title in as many months distributed and marketed by OUYA Publishing, a wholly owned division of Razer, Inc.
Gamers can now enjoy the Android version of “ChargeShot” via Razer Forge TV, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV and NVIDIA Shield with a weeklong launch sale for $7.99. Four new playable characters were added to the updated game, including a rendition of Razer Co-Founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan, along with a new capture-the-flag “Gem Master” mode.
“It seems that every time one of my staff do a deal with an indie game, I wind-up as some kind of weird character in-game, probably so they can give me a humiliating beating virtually,” says Tan. “Fortunately, they choose great games when they do this to me, and ‘ChargeShot’ is no exception.
ABOUT “ CHARGESHOT ” :
The commercially successful “ChargeShot,” originally distributed for PC, was produced on what has been characterized as a “less-than-shoestring budget,” a credit to its creators and a counterpoint to the production values and immersive appeal that made it a fan-favorite worldwide.
In the game, men, Girblons, women, and children from across dozens of galactic sectors annually tune-in to their local space TV stations for the most anticipated event of the year: “ChargeShot.”
Bounty hunters from across the known universe compete annually for eternal glory and a coveted $2,000,001 space-credit reward in ChargeShot. Each player is armed with a Pulsar Cannon, capable of powerful blasts that bounce off walls and instantly destroy any life forms they touch; an Energy Shield, which can reflect Pulsar blasts and knock opponents into dangerous hazards; and a standard-issue jetpack for traversing the battlefield with deadly speed and grace. In a fascist, dystopian galaxy where humans are the rats of the stars, yetis have mastered space travel and Goopies are Girblons, you’ll assume control of one of many ass-kicking, elite bounty-hunters. Play against humans, hone your skills against AI or dominate the leaderboards of the single-player quest to become the best professional bounty hunter in all of space. With achievements, character backstories and a slathering of unlockable characters, “ChargeShot” has what your butt’s been craving.
