Squirrel With a Gun is an upcoming Steam game built in Unreal Engine 5 about a squirrel with…well…a gun

Squirrel With a Gun is an upcoming Steam game built in Unreal Engine 5 that has taken the internet by storm because it features a squirrel with…well…a gun.

Squirrel with a Gun is developed by Dan De Entremont, and the first footage from the game shows the titular squirrel running through a town with full-sized weapons chasing down unsuspecting people and taking out agents using various weapons.

The game will also let you parry attacks to disarm enemies and use gun recoil to fly through the air and cross wide gaps that you couldn’t get past with your squirrel skills alone. If you’re feeling extra mischievous, you can even steal people in your neighborhood their phones, cake, etc.

The first trailer for Squirrel With a Gun also shows what appear to be adorable hats and accessories you can put on your furry friend and puzzles in a secret lab that reward you with a delicious digital-looking treat.

The animal video game genre causing chaos in the world seems to have a new competitor and one that will one day join the likes of Untitled Goose Game, Goat Simulator, and more. As for when that day will be? DeEntremont currently says about the game steam page that Squirrel With a Gun’s planned release date is “good question!” This means that it may take some time before we can become this legendary rodent.
