Gunpoint designer and artist team up for Heat Signature


The space game about infiltrating ships

Gunpoint designer Tom Francis' next title, Heat Signature, has art!

Well, new art, I should say. The stuff we saw previously for this spaceship heist game was just placeholder. John Roberts, who did the art on Gunpoint, has joined the project. The two presumably made it through the last game without hating each other, which is always nice.

Francis says he'll have a new trailer out next week. But if you're curious right this second, I recommend watching the outdated video. There's a funny part at around 6:50 where he docks into a ship and hijacks it, then uses the vessel to fire missiles at an even larger ship. He undocks and escapes just in time before the enraged, heavily-armed ship blows the other one to pieces.

Yep, this is a neat game.
