A new game on Steam has driven the internet into a frenzy with its unique mechanics and apt title.

Squirrel With a Gun is a new title being developed in Unreal Engine 5 by Daniel DeEntremont and as the title would suggest, it’s a rodent-based third-person shooter that sees players control a squirrel on a crime spree.

Footage of the game’s development was posted back as early as May this year, with a quick tech demo showcasing the Unreal Engine 5’s fur lighting physics and gun physics, that can be used to send the squirrel into the air.

While the game is still being made, its creator is working on new features for it, such as hand-to-paw combat and disarmament.
