More On: Secret Ponchos

Switchblade Monkey's new PvP twin-stick shooter Secret Ponchos needs as big of a test group as they can get while they continue polish the game and add more features into the mix. What does this mean for you, the prospective buyer? Only that right now is probably the best possible time to buy into their Early Access game.

Everyone who buys Secret Ponchos before August 5, 2014 will get an additional Steam Key to give to a friend- and both copies will unlock the full version of the game once it's released. Since the main game mode right now is 2v2, it's good to have a reliable partner by your side. The Early Access version of Secret Ponchos is $14.99 right now via Steam, so you can buy it and gift it to a friend, or both of you can go halvsies on it. That's $7.50 for this game, and it's not even the Summer Sale. One caveat to keep in mind- in it's current stage of development, you need either an Xbox 360, Xbox One, or PS4 controller to play.

If you want to see some live gameplay before you buy it, you should check out Switchblade Monkey's Twitch channel every Saturday for the Devs vs. Challenger stream. Every week they do live tournaments, Q&A, and reveal new content.
