In Luckslinger, luck is measurable, collectable and usable whenever you please. On one half it’s inspired by the unrealistically fast gunslingers, the dark gritty humor and the greed driven anti-heroes of the spaghetti western classics.
On the other half it’s inspired by vinyl digging, graffiti spraying, rhyming and the slow drums and jazzy samples of hip hop culture and sound.
Kill bandits, steal their luck and use it for your own good. The more luck you have the more chance you have that, enemy bullets might miss, you get saved from a bad jump or better loot is dropped in front of your feet. However, when you don’t have much luck in your lucky bracelet, bridges might collapse, rocks might come loose and outlaws might find a way to get a jump on you.
The town of Clovercreek has been robbed blind. Six infamous criminals stole the town’s precious luck charms and it’s up to you to bring them back. Get paid the golden price while doing so, because bounty hunters don’t do charity work.
Best Core Entertainment Game
Luckslinger deserves the 'Best Core Entertainment Game' award because Luckslinger offers a solid platforming experience, it has a distinct theme (hiphop mixed with spaghetti westerns), because of its humor and because of its luck mechanic. Luckslinger's luck mechanic is hardly seen/explored in other games and the way we apply it in Luckslinger perfectly fits the platforming gameplay and allows us to spice up the traditional platforming formula. Besides the platforming action and the luck mechanic you are accompanied by a lovely duck companion and the game also features a lot of minigames such as gambling, russian roulette, poker, quick draw duels and more.
