Bite the Bullet Released

Developer Mega Cat Studios and publisher Graffiti Games bite the bullet and announce the release of Bite the Bullet, a roguelite RPG shooter they describe as "the world’s first Run & Gun & Eat title." The Windows, macOS, and Linux edition can be found on Steam and the Switch version is also now available, to be followed by tomorrow's release for Xbox One. Here is a Launch Trailer (not to be confused with a lunch trailer), and here are a bellyful of details:
In this roguelite RPG shooter players must eat enemies, bullets and more to powerup their character, weapons, and abilities. Gun down zombies, robots and giant mutant bosses with a barrage of bullets before chowing down on their corpses to craft new weapons, unlock new abilities and special attacks, and transform into a powerful Zombro form to smash foes. Explore four character classes and a skill tree based on specific diets – and remember, you are what you eat!

In the future players can enjoy a new Synthwave Mode that allows the game to be played in synthwave colors while listening to music from amazing artists, including Waveshaper, Night Runner, Retröxx and Magic Sword.

“In Bite the Bullet how much and what you eat controls everything from your waistline to branching skill trees and weapon crafting," says Nick Mann, Game Designer at Mega Cat Studios. "Shoot fast, eat big, and workout your abdominal muscles to satisfy your appetite for destruction."
