Gunpoint snuck in a sale this week and is half off now through Thursday at 7PM ET, making each version just $5, $10 or $15 via Steam or directly from Suspicious Developments. During the sale, $5 is for the base game with the level editor, $10 gets the Special Edition with the soundtrack and in-game developer commentary, and $15 is for the Exclusive Edition, which adds a 40-minute making-of video, playable prototype levels, four exclusive songs and early access to future Suspicious Developments games.
Players who previously bought a lower-tier version of the game and wish to upgrade now have the option to pay the difference and get that next edition. The content is now, essentially, DLC. Gunpoint also added Steam Trading Cards.
"I still have basically no idea how these really work, but I was surprised by how much I ended up wanting all the little reward things our artist John Roberts created," Designer Tom Francis tells Joystiq. "The ability to emote Conway face-palming somewhere on my Steam profile just seems really important somehow."
Mac and Linux versions of Gunpoint and incoming, Francis says. Get the declassified details of Gunpoint's sale in Francis' video, or head straight to Suspicious Developments.
Gunpoint is a stealth puzzle game that lets you rewire its levels to trick people. You play a freelance spy who takes jobs from his clients to break into high security buildings and steal sensitive data.
To get past security, you'll need to make creative use of your main gadget: the Crosslink. It lets you see how all the security devices in a level are wired up, and then you can just click and drag with the mouse to wire them differently. So you can connect a lightswitch to a trapdoor, then flick it when a guard walks across to make him fall through.
