The Besties: Gunbrella is a gun that’s an umbrella [Resties]

An illustration of a white trophy with four black figures. One is lifting the bottom of the trophy, another is waving from the top, another is climbing the handle, and the last figure is standing next to it with its arms outstretched. The background is gold. There is a light yellow light shining out from the trophy. Above it says, “The Besties” in black serif font with an orange laurel on either side.

The goal of Gunbrella is to find those responsible for your wife’s death by wielding the murder weapon: a gun that turns into an umbrella. Of course this isn’t any umbrella. It can block bullets, zip you into the sky, and grind rails like a pro skater. We really enjoyed the developer’s previous game, Gato Roboto; can Gunbrella take their talents another step forward? In the second half, we make sense of this month’s big video game industry controversy: Unity’s baffling decision to change its payment structure, infuriating tons of developers and potentially causing a glut of delays as designers move their games to new engines.
