Gunman Blue has embarked on a journey to find the ultimate outhouse.


Project Spaghetti is a top-down 2D cowboy-shooter where the bullets fired bounce around the screen with a pinball mechanic.

Use the bullet’s rebound to your advantage to rack up points, defeat enemies, and loot the coins they drop for even more points. Fight your way through black-hatted cowboys, disembodied ghosts, hard-shelled scorpions, shield-projecting aliens, and regenerating snowmen. Take down giant bosses and complete secret challenges to find keys to other outhouses leading to other areas, including an unlimited mode that can respond to Twitch messages for a more interactive experience with your viewers.

Background

Inspired by our undying love of the classic Commodore 64, Project Spaghetti was our first foray into live game development. For the last year, every week, we came on to Twitch.tv to show what we were making and how we were making it in the hopes of providing a little entertainment value and of getting our viewers to go out and try it themselves.

If you want to see Project Spaghetti being made, you still can over at the video archive on YouTube.
