    Man, I wish they’d make the comic already. Guess I’ll go play Gunfire Reborn while I wait.

    I hope the people who made Gunfire Reborn aren't too busy playing Gunfire Reborn to investigate why all of a sudden everyone's playing Gunfire Reborn.

    I was really into Gunfire Reborn for a week or so last year. Did they add new content? Or come out of EA?

    Another reminder that even though I'm an avid gamer, I am completely out of touch for what kids these days are playing. I've never even heard of Gunfire Reborn. Sounds like a shmup.

    Honestly, I'm surprised they don't make more strips in this vein.

    It's not a shmup. Shmups are usually top down shooters like 1942 in arcades of old, Raptor on DOS, or more recently Ikaruga and Touhou.

    GR and similar games are usually FPS games, but with roguelite elements.

    Gabe probably has a right to complain. I assume it takes longer to draw a strip than it does to write one. Has anyone watched him draw one on a livestream who could give us a rough idea of how fast he churns one out? (I know not all strips are equal, but it could still be some interesting trivia.)

    To be fair, Mike and Jerry are 40-year-old dads.

    Given their history, Gabe has always been the straight man.

    Yeah, I know what a shmup is. And when I read the words "Gunfire Reborn" that's the first image that pops into mind. A topdown bullet hell game with some sort of aircraft or mech. That's the image that is conjured in my head just based on the name alone.

    I have not looked it up online to see gameplay.

    To be fair, they work at a company they created that centers around them playing video games.

    Is Gunfire Reborn a big thing now, or is it just some odd little game that got its hooks in the guys?

    What is this I don't even.

    i hadn't heard of gunfire reborn until the last comic mentioning; promptly bought it on steam as it looked right up my alley and dear god it has consumed my life.

    Deffo an odd little game. I picked it up a while back because I love roguelites and it’s certainly fun but nothing revolutionary.

    I dunno, what's straighter than the towering, lengthy, girthsome, supple neck of a barely-legal giraffe?

    That's not straight or gay. That's orthogonal.

    That face Tycho is making in panel 2 is just too perfect.
