Samurai Gunn coming to PC this holiday, PS4 and Vita in 2014

Samurai Gunn, the local multiplayer brawler from Teknopants, is set for release on Windows PC via Steam and direct purchase this holiday season, and it will be published by Maxistentialism, the latter company announced today.

Maxistentialism is a design firm run by Max Temkin, co-creator of Cards Against Humanity, the "party game for horrible people." According to a press release, Maxistentialism is financing Samurai Gunn as an angel investor and publishing it to help Teknopants "bring the minimalist showdown to the public without compromising the game's integrity."

"I'm publishing this game independently because I'd like to prove that a local experience can still sell," said Beau Blyth, the developer who goes by Teknopants, in the press release.

"I first got to play Samurai Gunn at GDC and I was immediately hooked," said Temkin. "Beau shared a build with me and I started taking it around to parties... whenever I brought it out the party would grind to a halt and everyone would gather around the laptop. I want to share that experience with everyone."

Sony announced during Gamescom last week that Samurai Gunn is one of many indie titles coming to PlayStation Vita in 2014. Maxistentialism said today that Teknopants is also working on a PlayStation 4 version, which will be released next year as well.

Teknopants released a new trailer for Samurai Gunn today; you can watch it above, and check out four new screenshots in the gallery below. PAX Prime 2013 attendees will be able to play Samurai Gunn in the Indie Megabooth.
