This is one of many horror adaptations we have seen of beloved Disney characters that have hit the public domain.

This is a horror game that you will get addicted to quickly. The indie game titled Buckshot Roulette has recently blown up among the gamer community and it’s easy to see why.

The game states “Buckshot Roulette is a tabletop horror game that attempts to re-design the infamous game of Russian Roulette, replacing the traditional revolver with a proper 12-gauge pump-action shotgun. This extra firepower, and more importantly the different mechanics in handling a shotgun compared to a revolver, offers a fresh take on the classic and deadly game of chance. The game takes place at the top of an underground nightclub, where the metal railings tremble to the pulse of long-lost drum machines. A crooked AI dealer is waiting for you. Will you meet them?”

The game was created and developed by Mike Klubnika for Windows and Linux on itch.io. He is known for the horror games Unsorted VHS and The Other Side. First released on December 28th of last year, the game became a major hit in the gaming community and is streamed by several big-time gamers. The game’s ability to keep changing up on items you get dealt with and the randomness of the dealer AI is what keeps the game fresh with gamers.

One of the most interesting things about the game is the mysterious dealer. Not much is known about the dealer’s origins, but one thing in the game raises interest. One of these is the liability waiver that randomly pops up with God’s name at the bottom. It is covered in blood and raises the question of whether the dealer won against God or if the dealer lost and is forever trapped playing the roulette game.

The game is currently available to purchase on itch.io for only $1.20 for both Windows and Linux. Have you played this game yet and if so, did you enjoy it? Let us know in the comments below. Also, check out the trailer for the game below.
