Description

Gentlemen! is a frantically paced local multiplayer Victorian-themed duelling game. Go head-to-head with your frenemy in 19th Century England, settling your grievances with knives, bombs, deadly homing pigeons, and more. You'll need to hone a delicate balance of technique, knowledge, cunning, and blind panic (just like a real duel!). You'll also need a friend - two players, one screen on the tablet version, up to 4 players on desktop. If you don't have a friend, go and get one. Released 16 July 2013 to iPad and Android and 5 November on Steam!

History

This game is also about social gaming, in the most local sense of the phrase; at least two players are required, in the same place. We wanted to make a fast paced multiplayer arcade game with ridiculous theming, gorgeous graphics, and awesome music. We think we succeeded.

Features

  • Super frantic gameplay.
  • Local Multiplayer.
  • No boring single player mode.
  • Crazy weapons, wonderful controls.
  • Beautiful artwork.
  • Kickass music.
