So back in August a cool-looking game caught our eye that goes by the tentative title of Project Joan. It's something of a hybrid between a run 'n gun shooter like Contra and a side-scrolling endless runner, though one where you can move up and down between floors. Anyway, at that time Project Joan was still super early in development, but the team at Happymagenta has been plugging away at the game ever since and have made some pretty cool progress on the game. Recently they decided to share some of the insane weapons you'll be able to use in Joan in our forums, and they were so freaking cool I had to share some of them with you here as well.
Imp Gun - This weapon creates an evil black hole which will suck the souls and literally suck the blood out of your enemies.
Acid Gun - This gun shoots out acid that will melt your enemies, and when upgraded, can even shoot out headcrabs that spray acid all over the level themselves.
Odin's Shot - An electricity gun that will chain from enemy to enemy, and when upgraded can shoot out a ball of electricity ahead of Joan to dispatch enemies and clear a path.
Mono-molecular Lash - A huge whip-like laser weapon that lashes out and slices up your enemies, and when upgraded can even cast a huge laser net to catch them in.
This is really just a taste, as Happymagenta details several more unique types of weapons in our forums, specifically in this post and this post. Be sure to check them out, including the Lightsaber weapon which I'm sure is violating some sort of copyright somewhere and the Circular Saw weapon which looks just plain brutal. Project Joan is still at least a couple of months away, but as long as you've got it plugged into your TouchArcade [Free] Watch List we'll send you alerts when more news on the game hits.
