“Too many sombreros,” the Chivatos said. “No one man should have that power.”

So after ten thousand years, Klik’n’Play oldboy Dustin Gunn (that’s his actual name) has released his ACTION 52 OWNS remake game, Sombreros, under his new indie game label, Sniper Diplomat (1 nerdpoint to anyone who gets the reference).

Why am I posting about it? Well, besides the fact that it owns very hard, it also has a soundtrack by yours truly, which could basically be described as Red Dead Revolver meets Sunset Riders meets Metal Slug meets the extents of my musical talents — basically, it’s cheesy spaghetti western.

Besides doing the music, I also helped a bit with the writing and gave a few ideas for the design of the last level/boss.

At any rate, it’s a really well done game, with awesome (and clever) boss fights, exciting set pieces, hilarious dialogue, and some good freaking music (heh). Also I made that title-screen image.

Check it out immediately, or enjoy your last breaths, senor.

    So I finally got around to playing this, and it was amazing…
    …and it would have been amazinger if the last level didn’t lag on both of my fairly modern overclocked PCs.

    Also, release the soundtrack in a zip or rar or lhz or something.

    bob — i’ve heard that starting the game on level 3 (using the level option on the main menu) helps w/ the lag.

    I retract my statement then – game is amazinger.

    “look at the original dungeon thread, and you’ll see a definite sort of narrative playing out in terms of the players’ eventual understanding of how the game works, and when the conclusion is finally reached, you can see a lot of people are appreciative of the experience.” – Arthur Lee, Editor of PIGscene. Just putting it out there. – Athur Lee, Editor of PIGscene.
