IGF-nominated stealth indie Gunpoint coming to PC through Steam

Gunpoint, a 2D stealth game requiring players to rewire hardware to solve puzzles, will be published for Windows PC through Steam, lead designer Tom Francis announced last night.

In Gunpoint, players must direct electrical power through objects and switches in the surrounding environment in order to get through levels. A number of helpful gadgets are also at players' disposal, which will allow them to survive falls and other serious physical damage, make their way to difficult-to-reach areas and even manipulate how weapons work. Check out the video above for a tour of these gadgets, led by Francis.

There is currently no set release date for Gunpoint, but interested players can sign up for the title's mailing list to receive more details as they are announced. Gunpoint was nominated for the Independent Games Festival award for Excellent in Design in 2012.
