Sombrero Closed Alpha Released

Developer PixelMetal recently reached out with information on their upcoming title Sombrero, self-described: “Spaghetti Western Mayhem, think Super Smash Brothers meets Capture the Flag…with a little bit of Dark Souls ‘bonfire kindling’ thrown in.”


This arena battler pits players against player for victory depending on the selected game mode. “Loot!” has players roaming the map attempting to loot more cash than their opponents. Bonfires scattered across the map multiply the amount of cash players loot per bag, so players will be scrambling around the map for loot bags while dodging enemy gunfire and jockeying for control of bonfires to improve loot output. Classic Deathmatch and Capture the Flag modes are also available for some good old-fashioned fun. Check out some alpha footage of the loot game mode below.

PixelMetal was kind enough to send us a download of the current alpha version. It initially reminded me of The Showdown Effect, one of my personal favorites. Keep an eye out for a First Impression article in the future after I get some friends together to take the local multiplayer for a spin! Also keep an eye out for our interview with the developer!

Greetings Nation! The name's Nick Bayer, I'm 25 and have identified as a gamer since my father brought home Commander Keen when I was 5. I currently work as a Medical Social Worker and spend all of my free time either gaming, spending time with my beautiful fiance, or gaming with my beautiful fiance. I gradated in 2013 from Grand Valley State University with a degree in Psychology, I currently am in my final semester at Grand Valley State University for a Masters in Social Work. I mainly use PC as my gaming platform of choice, primarily enjoying the genres of RPG, action-adventure, FPS, and strategy games (Including Grand Strategy!). I also play an unhealthy amount of Dota 2. My favorites include Max Payne 2, Bioshock 1, Crusader Kings 2, The Ace Combat series (4-6), and Spec Ops: The Line. My favorite games are the ones that excel at telling wonderful stories!
