MOTHERGUNSHIP is a bullet-hell FPS where you craft your own guns, play together with your friends, fight gigantic bosses and defeat a robotic alien armada that conquered Earth.

Take the fight to the enemy, craft gun monstrosities that no reasonable person could ever lift, and experience randomized mayhem as you battle your way to the heart of the fleet to destroy the MOTHERGUNSHIP!

FIGHT
Face off against overwhelming odds in brutal, non-stop combat where thinking on your feet is the only way to survive. Dodge hundreds of bullets with unique FPS/Bullet-hell hybrid gameplay. Each ship hosts hordes of alien machines, deadly traps, and intimidating bosses, all set on preventing you from saving humanity. Go get ‘em.

CRAFT
To take down the MOTHERGUNSHIP, you’ll need your very own personalized arsenal of destruction. Luckily, in MOTHERGUNSHIP you can create the gun of your dreams with one of the most modular gun-crafting systems ever seen in a videogame. Want to have twelve-barrel gun that shoots homing rockets? Or do you prefer a lightning shotgun? And what gun wouldn’t look better with a fishtank affixed to the top? Go for it! The design of your destructive arsenal is in your hands.

RESIST
Join the ranks of global resistance movement and take back Earth together with your friends. Fight together with a friend in a full CO-OP experience, or participate with the community while you work together to cut through the alien fleet and reach that ultimate goal – bringing down the MOTHERGUNSHIP.

Greetings everyone!

We are back with a new development blog post from MOTHERGUNSHIP! So you’ve survived the endless hordes of the regular MOTHERGUNSHIP rooms, and somehow scraped through the heat of the Foundry ships...and now you’re ready for the next challenge? Well, how about something completely different? How about something a little more frantic..something that relies a little less on the calibre of your weaponry and a little more on how fluid your movement is? I’m excited today to share a little about another ship type in MOTHERGUNSHIP; the Neon ship.

MOTHERGUNSHIP Alpha Screens NEON 1

Neon ships are far more massive than other ships in the MOTHERGUNSHIP's armada. They’re filled with cavernous rooms and vaulted ceilings, saturated with an ever-present ethereal haze that suggests some deeply complex and mysterious technological prowess on the part of the aliens. What impossible purpose could these neon lit cathedral-like spaces serve? What data is housed within it’s cybernetic walls? What possible use could these ships have?

For you, the player, none of that matters! All you care about is that neon levels feel like the inside of a giant pinball machine!

MGS NEON 01

Around every corner there’s a bumper, a boosting ring, a bouncing wall, a gravity well or some other mechanism to launch you into the air at breakneck speeds. The sheer gargantuan size of these chambers becomes quickly forgotten when you realize you spend most of your time airborne, zipping back and forth between the colonnades of bullets, soaring along faster, often quite literally, than a speeding bullet.

MGS NEON 02

Yes, the Neon ships in MOTHERGUNSHIP present an opportunity for aerial acrobatics rarely seen in the first person shooter genre. Each room feels like a cross between a roller coaster and a some wild labyrinthian puzzle, all while presented in an attractively cyber aesthetic! Especially when combined with some of the wild mobility-influencing gunparts..well, we can’t wait to see what sort of antics people get into in Neon rooms.

While you wait for MOTHERGUNSHIP to release, we also just announced we’ll be at GDC next week as part of Epic’s massive booth and at PaxEast as part of the Indie MEGABOOTH. Why not stop by in person and try our new demo?

Thank you for reading! Until the next time, why don’t you:

Great new screenshots!
They all have a high Tower of Guns (your previous game) value, which is awesome! And it all does look so very nice in the Unreal engine.
So, thanks for the new update!

This looks so cool every time I check it out and with every update. I love giant robots, Power Armor Combat Suits, and I freaking love guns and bullets. The art direction is so cool.

My next free game will be just like this, but with more ships. With A.I assistance on both sides. Good work.

MOTHERGUNSHIP is co-developed by the same team who made Tower of Guns. It is not a sequel but there are similarities in the gameplay.

Why is Valve Software listed in the trailers?

Hey there! The game will be available through Steam, this is why the logo is listed on the trailers.
