Gunman Clive Developer Working On Zelda Inspired Game For Nintendo 3DS

Bertil Hörberg, developer of Gunman Clive, is hard at work on his next game, which he tells us is heavily inspired by older games in the Legend of Zelda series, and is in development for the Nintendo 3DS. In an interview with Siliconera, Bertil shared:


It’s still very early in development and a lot of the design isn’t finalized, but it’s very heavily inspired by the early Zelda games; it uses a topdown perspective with 3D graphics and it’s for the 3DS. The artstyle is fairly different from the new Zelda but has some influences from [A Link to the Past] as well, so yes I think comparisons will certainly be made [to A Link to the Past 2].


I think most players realize that my resources are rather more limited though and I wouldn’t presume to be in direct competition with Nintendo. I just hope people will be up for a bit more old-school action adventure gameplay regardless.


We’ll have our full interview with Bertil up later this week, where we discuss the success of Gunman Clive on Android and Nintendo eShop, PlayStation Vita development, and Gunman Clive’s release in Japan, which is being handled by Circle Entertainment.

    I was watching a guy stream Gunman Clive’s PC version a little while ago, and it’s a really fun little game.

  • Space_Ghost

    Gunman Clive is really fantastic for a smartphone game, especially once they added it to the eShop and gave it the more traditional button control methods. One of the best $1.99 games I’ve ever played, hands down. I’ll be looking forward to his next game, and I’m glad it’s specifically for the 3DS.

      I would have even paid 5 for it. My only beef was that it was short in amount of levels, but with its difficulty and trial and error, it was decently lengthy.

      I’ve never been big on platformers or side scrollers but I had a lot of fun with Gunman Clive especially given the cheap price, the artstyle and music were awesome and I trust that Bertil can deliver again.

  • Kavyn

  • yup Bertil my money is yours. looking forward to the interview.

    Gunman Clive is one of my fav games for my Iphone, despite me being very bad at the Iphones touch-controls so you bet I’m keeping my eyes peeled open for this one.

  • dragoon_slayer12

    I can’t wait for this. I loved gunman Clive on my phone, and even more on the 3ds.i hope they stick around for a long time, from Gunman Clive, they are excellent at what they do

  • Enjoyed Gunman Clive a lot on 3DS. Hope this new game uses the same art style, or at least a similar one.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World
