We are pumped to reveal that Huntdown, the critically-acclaimed, 80s inspired, bounty hunting shooter will be coming to the Apple App Store and Google Play Store this year. The game features integration with Apple TV, allowing players to seamlessly link their mobile devices, and play and save progress across both platforms.
Following its initial release on PC and consoles in May 2020, the game has received huge critical acclaim in its first year, recently shortlisted in both the Excellence in Multiplayer and Indie Game of the Year categories at the SXSW Awards. With an aggregate Metacritic score of 86, and inclusion in multiple game of the year roundups, Huntdown has established itself as a cult classic.
Back in 2016 we cruised around the exhibit halls at lovely SXSW in sunny Austin, struggling to get folks to play our very first demo of Huntdown. Now five years later, we’re hitting the SXSW Awards with the double tap! Huntdown has just been named in both the Excellence in Multiplayer and Indie Game of the Year categories at the SXSW Awards. Little did we know back then that Huntdown would climb and compete against the best games in the world. After all the work, toil, effort, frustration and sleepless nights to make Huntdown come true, we’re now feeling encouraged, deeply honored and very grateful for these nominations.
Long time no see! We just wanna say hello and tell ya that Huntdown’s coming along. We’re now working with polish, tweaks and overall gameplay balance. Some weeks ago we also had a local gameplay test session in single mode and co-op. Some few selected participants were filling the hall with grunts of agony over mean boss fights followed by joyous victory yells. Big thanks to all of you who attended. We also want to thank Innovatum Startup, N3 and House of Gamers.
About social medias
We get a lot of questions concerning our silence in social medias: … aaaaaaand nope! Game’s not canned.
We’re a small indie team working hard and we simply have to allocate our precious time for game development instead of managing social medias for the moment. No worries, we will give you news about the release date soon enough. Stay tuned for updates folks!

Trollhättan is a medium-sized city that is constantly growing with a rich university life, new innovative companies and expanding residential areas. Imagine your progress of approx. 2 hours gameplay in Simcity 3.
Trollhättan is small enough for folk’s to have a pleasing dialect, but big enough to hold many restaurants, bars and clubs with interesting artists/bands, cafes, cinemas and shops with everything you can think of. As well as a travel center with good connections, eg; 30 minutes train to Gothenburg and its own city airport with 45 minutes to Stockholm.
Easy Trigger Games is located in the heart of Innovatum, a growing development center for a Space incubator, research projects arena and a cluster of startups and creative companies in areas of gaming, tech, music, film studios and design bureaus. It never gets boring here.
