I tweet news, shots of things I'm working on, and despair at the complexity of coding.

Sounds OK

Gunpoint Is Out! It's Cheap! It Has A Launch Trailer!


After three years, Gunpoint is out! It's cheap! Try the demo here or on Steam to check it works and that you like it! Then buy it from there or from the widgets below!

Note: it's Windows only for now. I hope to make Mac and Linux versions, but I'm new at this and it takes time.

Don't know what it is yet? Here are the basics!

What are these fancy editions?

They're fancy! You can get all three from Steam or from here, and some point you'll be able to upgrade to a different edition. Here are the details!

Gunpoint - Buy it!
  • Gunpoint: a 2D stealth game about rewiring things and punching people.
  • The Level Editor: reasonably simple to use, saves as tiny text files you can share however you like.

Gunpoint: Special Edition - Buy it!
  • Gunpoint: a 2D stealth game about rewiring things and punching people.
  • The Level Editor: reasonably simple to use, saves as tiny text files you can share however you like.
  • The Soundtrack: includes all of the game’s noir-inspired spy music in high quality MP3 format.
  • Developer Commentary: when enabled, you’ll find little sprites of Gunpoint’s developers on every mission. Talk to us to hear a little about our thinking behind the design (Tom), the art (John), and the music (Ryan). Caution: shooting a developer while he’s talking ends his current commentary track. This kills the developer.

Gunpoint: Exclusive Edition - Buy it!
  • Gunpoint: a 2D stealth game about rewiring things and punching people.
  • The Level Editor: reasonably simple to use, saves as tiny text files you can share however you like.
  • The Soundtrack: includes all of the game’s noir-inspired spy music in high quality MP3 format.
  • Developer Commentary: when enabled, you’ll find little sprites of Gunpoint’s developers on every mission. Talk to us to hear a little about our thinking behind the design (Tom), the art (John), and the music (Ryan). Caution: shooting a developer while he’s talking ends his current commentary track. This kills the developer.
  • The Making Of Gunpoint: a 40-minute video feature taking you through how Gunpoint developed from a one-room test game to what you play today. Featuring Gunpoint’s designer playing his earliest prototypes for the first time since they were made, to great personal embarrassment and shame.
  • The Prototype Pack: play snapshots of Gunpoint’s development at 9 different stages, including cartoony programmer art, the first conception of the hacking system, many scrapped levels, and overpowered gadgets we later cut. For hopefully obvious reasons, we can’t give technical support for these.
  • 4 Exclusive Tracks: bonus pieces produced specially by Gunpoint’s composers for this edition, mixing the game’s noir style with electronic influences. Since they’re not used as background music in the game, our composers took the chance to be more adventurous with these tracks.
  • The Secret Beta Access List: adds an option in the game menu to sign up to our Secret Beta Access List. If and when future Suspicious Developments games are developed, we’ll sometimes give secret beta versions only to the members of this list.



Have some facts!

  • There's a demo! You can get it on Steam or download it standalone.
  • The main story takes most people about 3 hours to play through once.
  • You can replay any mission you’ve already completed with whatever gadgets you currently have, to try to earn different ratings for avoiding violence, kills, noise, witnesses, etc.
  • All editions come with the level editor. The levels it makes are saved as simple text files so they’re easy to share.

Thanks so much to everyone who's already bought it. I have been hurled across the room by your generosity, crushed against the wall by your enthusiasm, and stamped into a broken heap by your support. It's the good kind of heap.
