SEATTLE— Gamers around the world have reacted to the upcoming Devolver Digital and Galvanic Games cooperative survival sandbox Wizard with a gun with concern that no gameplay could live up to such a title.
“If you call your game Wizard with a gun, looking for trouble. Because this title is so appealing as a concept, there’s no way the game can reach that potential. It’s like calling your game Really Cool Action Sequences or calling your game This Video Game Will Have Sex With You,” gamer Ed Lester said. “And then I go to Steam and see that Wizard with a gun is an online cooperative sandbox survival game? And it’s published by Devolver? Come on man. You think I’m stupid? It’s 2022 and I know better than to get excited about something. I’ll buy it and play it, don’t get me wrong, but I’ve been hurt too many times to hope for anything.
According to the developers of Wizard with a gunthe title was a big part of the decision-making process.
“Everyone always talks about how hard it is to come up with a good idea for a video game. No it’s not. Give a wizard a gun,” said a Galvanic Games developer. so hard with these crazy locals? ‘Uhhh what if there was a ring of Elden?’ Bro just takes one already cool thing and adds a second already cool thing. Wizard with a gun. Don’t think about it too much. He’s a wizard with a gun. Pan Pan. But also Pan Pan. If people think our game Wizard with a gun can’t live up to the premise of this title, I hope they reconsider the simple pleasure of playing a wizard who somehow got a gun.
As of press time, Galvanic Games are reportedly working on a follow-up game to their upcoming release titled Wizard with two pistols.
