Coffee Stain Enters Publishing, First Game is 80’s-Inspired Dystopian Cop-Action Game Huntdown

Coffee Stain, known primarily for developing the YouTube-fodder sandbox game Goat Simulator, has entered the games publishing business.

“After years of developing games and working with different publishers that did or didn’t walk the talk, Coffee Stain figured out how to self-publish with great results,” the company said in a statement. “Now, with chests bulging of goat coin, Coffee Stain opens an initiative towards what the company considers “good publishing’.”

Their first game to be published is by independent Swedish developer Easy Trigger, and it’s called simply Huntdown. Featured above, you can view a new trailer for the game.

The game is described as an 80’s-inspired, hard-boiled co-op arcade shooter. You’ll have to run, jump, and take cover in the chaotic streets of the future. You’ll be enabled to kill henchmen, take their guns and weapons, and eventually hunt down the various gang leaders. You can collect their bounty, level by level.

Huntdown will be released for PC and consoles sometime later this year.

    Looks alright I guess. Gameplay looks pretty fucking slow compared to something like metal slug.

    They nailed the look and the sound.

    It looks more of a mix between Contra and Blackthorne to be honest. What with the cover mechanics and general movement speed.

    And this looks cool, but the trailer would have been a heck of a lot better if they emphasized the music rather than the horrible voiceovers.

    I read “Coffee Stain” and hoped that they’re at last doing something unrelated to Goat Sim.

    While it’s not a new game of their own making, it still is a welcome news.

    Oh look, a real game from these guys instead of memes.

    It looks nice, I guess. Tight controls will make or break the title.
