[Update: Greenlit] Stuck In Greenlight Limbo: ‘Shiny Gauntlet’

shiny gauntlet

This time the spotlight will be shining on Shiny Gauntlet, a shiny (obviously), action-packed… adventure! Let’s help it escape the cold emptiness of Greenlight limbo, eh?

Select your champion and explore the Gauntlet. Collect weapons, enchanted rings, bottle and/or consume the mysterious remains of defeated foes, all the while chasing the wily cultist who has stolen your Shiny Shard!

Shiny… precious… my shiny precious. What? No? Really? Aw. Bet ya it is really shiny though, that shard. REALLY shiny. Anyway, on a slightly more serious note – bottling the remains of defeated foes? Creepy much? Heck no! Anything to get an advantage in a quest like this, I’d say! Anything. Developer does describe the world as a “randomly generated death labyrinth”, after all, mixing elements of bullet hell, roguelite and classic hack ‘n slash stuff. Not bad. Also, explosions and food. Lots of food. And a wealth of playable classes, because you’ll probably want to try something else after getting stomped by a massive enemy. Yup. Good luck catching that… wily cultist!

So riddle me this, dear reader: why is Shiny Gauntlet still struggling to shine through Greenlight? It’s out already and without a shiny demo to boot, so… how about visiting its super shiny Greenlight page and handing over a ‘yes’ if you like what you see? Remember: your shiny vote could gauntlet all the difference!
