Ever felt that the weaponry on offer in your average first-person shooter is a little tame? Doesn't really pack enough punch? Fails to send enough spiked balls of exploding death hurtling towards your enemies? You should probably take a look at the free demo just released for Mothergunship.
The pitch behind the co-operative roguelike game is to bring the sheer manic action of "bullet hell" shoot-em-ups to the FPS genre, and the ability to "craft gun monstrosities that no reasonable person could ever lift" is a huge part of that promise.
The Gun Crafting Range demo allows you to bolt together a bewildering array of projectile launchers to create your ideal all-in-one hand cannon, and then try it out in some enemies. If you share the results on social media, developer Grip Digital will be picking out the best and craziest weapon combos and rewarding their creators with bonus goodies to use in the full game when it launches later this year.
The Gun Crafting Range demo is available now for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
