As you can see in the prototype video after the break, Gunpoint casts the player as a secret agent breaking into high-security facilities. Though he's good with his fists and has one hell of a vertical, the agent's most notable tool is the Crosslink, which lets him rewire buildings. So, for instance, a guard attempting to use a light switch inadvertently opens a crucial door for our hero, or maybe even electrifies a buddy.
We're not making it sound particularly thrilling, we know. But check out the demo video and the game's brand new look in the gallery below. We're sure you'll get a ... charge out of them.
