The Cronus Update – Available Now!


The Cronus Update is now live (v1.6.1), with perhaps the most exciting content addition so far: a brand new hero! With the new Bomber ability, you can deploy a moving target and lock it in to call in a lethal airstrike. Cronus is all about area denial, flushing out opponents, and flanking while they are preoccupied. Grab the free update on Steam & itch.io.

Addicted to military science, Cronus was a protégé of the great Tactical General Lunarra. “Keep your eyes on the skies, boys.”

In addition to a new hero, enjoy the new planet Cerebrus with 7 new maps (and a few more to come)! This planet contains maps created by Kickstarter backers who donated at the Cartographer tier, and they were allowed to freely mix and match pieces from different worlds. Expect a little zaniness.

Last but not least, the game is 100% localized for Latin American Spanish (ES-419). I’m looking forward to new cadets. :)

Big news! Free Guest Edition, 1.3 update, 5 new maps, 4-pack discount, and soundtrack release


I’ve been working hard since the last release on a ton of updates, including some exciting community-focused features. Thanks to everyone who offered suggestions and helped with the ongoing alpha tests!

FREE Guest Edition

I’m happy to announce that a FREE Guest Edition download of Invisigun Heroes is now available for a limited time. GE players can host and join matches, including playing with friends who own the full version. Some features and content are limited to the full version, but there has never been an easier way to try the game and join your buddies. There’s a “Download Demo” button on the main store page if you don’t own the full version.

4-pack discount

Invisigun Heroes is now available on the Humble Store in both standalone and a discounted 4-pack, which is essentially buy-3-get-1-free. Combined with the free Guest Edition, it’s a great time to try everything out with a group of friends.

Official soundtrack released

The official soundtrack by Paper Sound is finally released! If you are a Kickstarter backer at the reward tiers that included the OST, your download codes have already been sent out. If you are new to the game, enjoy the pulsing ambient soundtrack that you’ve come to love in the game with high quality, 24-bit masters.

Version 1.3 update

Along with all of this goodness, version 1.3.0 is now live. Featuring 5 all new maps, this is a big update that also includes a huge list of balance updates and bug fixes. Many online and networking edge-cases have been fixed for a much more polished experience. Thanks everyone, and have fun!

Catch Invisigun at SXSW


Just a reminder that Danny, Ali, and I will be exhibiting Invisigun Heroes at the SXSW Gaming festival from March 16 – 18. We’ll be at booth #1832 in the Indie Corner section. I’m super-proud to have it as a nominee for the 2017 Gamer’s Voice Multiplayer category. Wish us luck, and hope to see some of you there!
