Kickstarter funded game company Exato Game Studios announced today that they will releasing an open beta of their 8-bit shooter Guncraft. The game, which looks eerily similar to Minecraft but with guns, differs from the norm in the way that it allows players to edit battlegrounds.
“With the availability of this open beta we welcome the feedback and participation of a much wider audience”, said John Getty, Executive Producer. “For fans of both Minecraft and modern warfare games we offer a unique experience not found anywhere else.”
Despite the Minecraft esque graphics, the game play and mechanics appear to be similar to most fps games these days, so it’ll be interesting to see if the style alone can differentiate the game from other shooters.
