This is exactly three years to the day since Enter the Gungeon’s initial release, and just under five years since our studio, Dodge Roll, formed and began working on the game. Five years. Wow. The success of Gungeon has been nothing short of mystifying, and for our small team, certainly life-changing as well. I’ve told this anecdote before, but I remember having discussions during Gungeon’s development amongst the team where the thought of selling 100,000 copies was something that we didn’t even want to talk about because it seemed too lofty of a dream. It is... Read more: A Farewell to Arms, Enter the Gungeon’s Grand Finale, Available Now on Xbox One
