New Game Chippy from Rust developer - PC Link

Chippy, a twin-stick bullet-hell shooter, which is available on Steam. This elegant arcade game, brought to you by the developers behind cult favourites Rust and Garry’s Mod, presents players with competitive challenges, with the aim to dodge, shoot and ultimately destroy 14 multi-form bosses, fighting their way to the top of the leaderboard.

Chippy’s huge retro-style bosses rain down ridiculous amounts of firepower. Players will need to destroy them by slicing off bigger and bigger sections, piece by piece, pixel-by-pixel, until their core is annihilated. It’s fast. It’s difficult. You’ll die a lot (Facepunch want you to).
