PC GAMERS JOIN THE FRAY AS COMPETITIVE STRATEGY BATTLER ‘MINI GUNS ’LAUNCHES ON STEAM EARLY ACCESS TODAY

Toy soldiers advance as charming PVP strategy game Mini Guns gets a much anticipated PC launch

p>FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

November 2nd 2017, Montreal, Canada: Riposte Games & Co is thrilled to announce that Mini Guns, the enchanting multiplayer strategy game set in a vibrant cartoonish battlefield comes to Steam Early Access today. In Mini Guns, players can choose their allegiances and have their gutsy toy soldiers storm the battlefield in explosive, real-time warfare. The brand new IP landed on iOS and Android in August and hit 1 million downloads in less than a month after launch.

Mini Guns is true cross-platform allowing Mini commanders to compete on a global scale across mobile, tablet, web and from today, PC. Mini Guns game profiles are seamlessly synced between platforms, meaning players can take the fight to the enemy faction on all of their devices, at any time. The much anticipated PC version will provide blazing performance and comes at the request of the Mini Guns community, who will be able to take full advantage of the power of PC for unlimited hours of play.

In Mini Guns, players deploy their factions - the freedom fighters known as ‘The Republic’, and powerful corporation ‘The Dominion’. Build up ‘Action Points’ as the round progresses to unleash your Minis on the battlefield and deploy sonic tanks, warplanes, and drones as you advance on the enemy base.

Mini Guns offers over a hundred charming miniature army men and women to collect and upgrade. The Minis are split into three categories: infantry? are practical and effective, vehicles? are hardy ground units that control the battlefield and siege the enemy base, and air units? are devastating machines that can be be used anywhere on the battlefield.

Create an ‘Alliance’ and team up with your friends to destroy the enemy base in cooperative multiplayer, and earn ‘honor’ for your Alliance to reach the top of the leaderboards. Collect and upgrade over 100 figurines - from the Rifleman and RPG to the HA-42 Tank and Bomber. Collect new Minis through exciting gameplay or purchase packs in the store. Move up the ranks through fierce combat and use your loot to level up your figurines.

Work together by trading and requesting Minis within your Alliance to build the ultimate arsenal of collectible mini action figures. As well as the endless hours of fun to be had playing competitively, Mini Guns offers exciting single player campaigns, fueled by challenging maps and innovative terrains.

“Mini Guns really hits the perfect balance between tactical, strategic gameplay and chaotic, immediate fun that we know PC gamers will love. We’ve got an exciting dynamic road map of updates ahead and were thrilled to have an extended playerbase to share the Mini Guns evolution with,” said Johan Eile, CEO at Riposte Games & Co.

“Given the success Mini Guns has had, we knew we had to bring it to PC. We’re in constant conversation with our community and they’ve been very vocal about that we get the PC version running as fast as possible. Mini Guns is an incredibly addictive and challenging game and our players really love playing it with the fidelity of a PC on a big screen” said Mathieu Rouleau, Chief Creative Officer at Riposte Games & Co.
