We’re back from the dead

July 1st, 2017

Hello youse,

We know. We KNOW. It’s been a long time since we’ve posted any updates. But no longer! As we’re gearing up for the final months of development on Guns, Gore & Cannoli 2, we’ll bring you more updates than ever before. Really, if we’re not able to keep that promise you can tie us to an oil drum and let us sleep with the fishes.

Anyway, there’s a lot been going on in Thugtown lately and we can’t wait to let you in on some exciting little secrets.

Development on Guns, Gore & Cannoli 2 is shaping up nicely. The sequel will feature a new range of enemies and we’re having a lot of fun designing those rascals. Last week we worked on enemies that can hide in open windows so they’re harder to blast to smithereens. Nothing a good old shotgun to the face can’t take care of though.


Another new feature we’re working on is the weapon wheel. As the game gives players the freedom to unleash hot lead in 360 degrees, it’s nice to instantly have an idea what weapons you have at your disposal. With the weapon wheel, switching between different weapons becomes a breeze and players will be able to go for a more strategic approach.  

Last but not least we have great news for all fans that begged us to let you shoot zombie freaks on the go. Your prayers have been heard: Guns, Gore & Cannoli will be making its way to Nintendo Switch. We received our Switch devkit last week and will be porting Vinnie’s first adventure to the new console. Nintendo was very keen to add the game to their indie line-up and we’re thrilled we’re going to make this happen. Stay tuned for more information.


If all this news has you shaking on your feet and you can’t resist the urge to blast undead in the face: the first Guns, Gore & Cannoli is currently 53% off on Steam. You can now get the game for less than an actual cannoli*

If you’d rather take a shot at the sequel, you’ll get plenty of opportunities. We will be showcasing Guns, Gore & Cannoli 2 at the following events all around Europe:

We hope to see you at one of these events. In the meantime, stay tuned to this blog and our social media channels for the latest updates on the game.

*might actually be more than an actual cannoli. Please refer to your regional cannoli dealers for current pricing

Guns, Gore & Cannoli ready to conquer PlayStation 4 on 08/12

November 23rd, 2015

Hello gangsters!

Today, we can finally announce the much anticipated release of Guns, Gore & Cannoli for Playstation 4. After earlier releases on Steam and Xbox One, many have requested a PS4-version and soon everyone will be able to enjoy it. Starting Tuesday the 8th of December, we are ready to conquer the PlayStation Store!

You are Vinnie Cannoli, who is sent on a mission to find a Goodfella who has gone missing. However, as soon as you set foot ashore, it becomes clear that Thugtown is overrun with zombies and other evil. You need to put on your best wiseguy-face and help Vinnie deal with the scum that is invading the city. In the campaign mode you’re trying to find the truth behind the mysterious events occurring during the prohibition era, while giving everyone who stands in your way an extra breathing hole, capiche?


We wanted to make sure that every experience is different, which is why we’ve added a bunch of skins for you to choose from. Pick an outfit and start a war with the local crooks. Of course, a nice outfit alone won’t cut it. So we took it a step further, only a true Godfather knows how to handle the wide variety of weapons you can use to clean every corner of ruthless foes and turn them into pulp. In order to make sure that things go as planned, you need to arm yourself with pistols, tommy guns, flamethrowers,… and shoot, blast and vaporize every danger we have sent your way.


Of course a mobster is stronger as a gang so why not make your friends an offer they can’t refuse by inviting them over for local co-op fun. Up to 3 players can join you on your mission in destroying every lowlife that turned into a flesh-eating maniac. But it doesn’t stop there. Show your friends which mafia clan rules the streets by crushing them as a true Don in our Versus mode. After humiliating your friends, you can add AI to get some target practice. But be prepared, they will be expecting you and they can’t wait to pop you…

Save the date: Xbox One release scheduled for Friday 25/09

September 21st, 2015

Hello gangsters, we have huge news for you!
Following up on our release for PC & Mac, we have prepared Guns, Gore & Cannoli for the console market. A true milestone, because it will be the first Belgian game ever to be released on Xbox One!

Clear your schedule because on September 25th, Guns, Gore & Cannoli is coming to Xbox One and with it comes a shiny new trailer:

On top of the 2D, fast-paced, humorous campaign mode you will get 13 additional free skins you can use to shoot, blast, kick and vaporize your enemies. These skins can of course be used for the campaign mode, but why stop there: we’ve added a new game mode to put your skills to the test.


That’s right! Guns, Gore & Cannoli will now be available with local Versus mode to turn friends into foes and foes into pulp! With even faster action, new areas and AI.

Don’t have anyone around? … Neither did we! As we locked ourselves into our basements and build a new battle AI ready to take over the world. And no better way to test it out then to put it in our new Versus mode.


This AI can calculate all your moves and tricks 1 million times faster than you do and on top of that, they can predict the future. It’s prediction: You will die a horrible death.

Do you think your reflexes and years of experience can outsmart 21kb of seemingly random gibberish code? Find out soon and see if you’re up to the task. All of the previously mentioned changes will also soon be implemented in the Steam version of the game.

Concerning the PS4-players: we haven’t forgotten about you either. The PS4-version is still in the verification process but will be announced soon.

Good luck out there in Thugtown, you’re going to need it!

PS: On Saturday the 26th & Sunday the 27th we will attend FACTS in Flanders Expo, Gent (Belgium). Make sure to pay a visit to the FLEGA Belgian Games Pavilion, as we will present our newest version of the game.

Meet us at the Belgian Pavilion at Gamescom 2015

July 30th, 2015

Next week we will attend the largest gathering of gamers in Europe, GAMESCOM! Like last year our team will be there whole week.
This year we are part of the Belgian Pavilion in Hall 3.2 (booth D 0.10). That means we will have a shared stand together with other Belgian games industry experts.
So feel free to stop by and say hi. Several developers/artist will be there to meet and greet our fans and of-course show you what we have been up to lately.

We see this as an excellent opportunity to show visitors our latest progress of our current game Guns, Gore & Cannoli.



May 8th, 2015

As you can see in the trailer above, there are obviously many enemies and weapons in Guns, Gore & Cannoli (Steam). Everybody who has ever played an action game knows that most of the games feature the same weapons all the time. We all know the pistols, shotguns, magnums, heavy machine guns and stuff. We tried to add a few extras like the Teslacoilgun to spice things up, but most guns are kind of ‘the classics’. The way we wanted to bring variation to the killing of enemies was by the way they die.
