The Gunstringer is a Shooting game available on the 360.
The Gunstringer is a Shooting game. Shooting games present a world in which the character must shoot their way out of dangerous situations. They provide the player with an array of weapons tailored to specific tasks. This unavoidably involves a combination of fisticuffs and gun based fighting that dictates the violent nature of these experiences. Beneath this harsh exterior though is often an intricate tactile game - and this is usually what drives the player.
The Gunstringer is an upcoming XBLA Wild West revenge story featuring a Kinect-controlled undead sheriff marionette. With some of the most ambitious Kinect controls I've seen there is enough complexity here to challenge core gamers, and enough novelty to keep the kids enthralled.
One of the more unique offerings announced so far for Kinect, along side the Sesame Street (Kinect) game, The Gunstringer is a fully controller-free game to test your puppeteering and quick draw shooting skills. The puppet cast will act out a tale of revenge, action and romance on a theatre-style stage.
