7 Games From E3 2016 You Probably Haven’t Heard Of

Gonner (Alex Newhouse)
Think Spelunky meets The Binding of Isaac--Gonner is a procedurally generated roguelike that has extremely difficult platforming, always close to too many enemies on screen, and a cartoonish art style reminiscent of Team Meat's games. Messing around with different combinations of hats and guns is particularly entertaining. Hats give you different movement abilities, and pairing each with different types of weapons make Gonner's brutal difficulty more entertaining than frustrating. During my demo, I relied just as much on the character's ability to pull off acrobatic maneuvers as I did on shooting during combat encounters, especially because I could only shoot left and right. Gonner a fascinating game with a great aesthetic and I'm excited to see more of it. It doesn't have an official release date yet, but it's coming to PC and Mac.
