Independent video game publisher Versus Evil, in partnership with independent developer Tuatara Games, has announced that pixel-style survival shooter, Let Them Come, is now available on PC and Mac.

Players take on the role of Rock Gunar, an interstellar, cigar-chewing mercenary gun for hire with alien blood on his hands.

Twitchy trigger fingers and focused battle tactics are the order of the day as players take on the ultimate survival mode challenge to wipe out the alien hordes, one wave at a time.

Steve Escalante, Versus Evil general manager says, “Let Them Come honours retro 16-bit pixel art and gives a nod to key action movie themes from the late 80's.

“The visuals that Klemen delivers with clever use of lighting, in this kind of art style, is simply wonderful to view.

“Between the music, the macho hero and crazy boss fights, Tuatara Games have delivered a solid shooter at a great value.

Employed by Infini Corp to destroy the alien hordes that threaten to wipe out human existence Rock Gunar is humanity's only hope as he faces wave upon wave of aliens, of all different kinds.

Quick target acquisition, a solid arsenal of weapons, ammo upgrades, bonus boosts and sheer brute tactics are essential to making it to the next wave of alien attackers.

The action is fast, chaotic and relentless and all presented in a gloriously over the top palette of 16bit gore.

Twitch integrated features also allow viewer participation in the onslaught against streamers. 

Participants can choose which alien creatures to spawn, name them and get rewards if their alien is the one that takes the streamer down.
