- One of the playable characters from Ronimo Games’ upcoming multiplayer online battle arena, Awesomenauts.
Inspired by ’80s animated series, the game features the most awesome mercenaries in the galaxy in their fight for territorial supremacy. Awesomenauts brings Russian monkeys with jetpacks, giant robots, and lots of other mighty aliens to the two-dimensional console battlefields of XBLA and PSN. Combining classic platforming-action with modern online multiplayer functionality, the action-packed gameplay offers everything the 16-bit generation and modern gamers love.
At the heart of the milky way lies the Bovinion system, ruled by a semi intelligent cow-like species. Although technologically advanced to an acceptable level, these Bovinions have maintained a tribal form of society for several thousands of years. Until recent years, an age-old custom in this society was to scare young Bovinion calves with bogeyman stories about a scary cowboy. Naughty Bovinion calves would, as the story went, be caught by this cowboy’s unrelenting lasso.
Recently, a wealthy Bovinion visionary opened up a park where visitors would come to see a genetically re-engineered cowboy in action. But disaster struck and the cowboy escaped his cage. Before the Bovinions could react the cowboy had wrangled the entire park staff. Terror shook the Bovinion civilization as the cowboy started to wrangle every single Bovinion on the planet! Suddenly the Bovinions found themselves out of their cities and wrangled into herds on green meadows by the whisky drinking, bucket spitting, yeeehaawing horror.
Once the entire Bovinion civilization had been wrangled, the cowboy, naming himself Sherriff Lonestar, rode a rocket ship into the sunset, his job complete. Now Sherriff Lonestar fights as a mercenary in the robot wars, combining his awesome cowboy-powers with high tech weaponry to earn some solar to spend on whisky and cigars.
Lonestar is a great fan of shooting things, but sometimes bullets just won’t cut it. So to make sure it stays down, Lonestar will chuck cigar-lit sticks of dynamite at his foes!
To keep himself sharp, Lonestar trains with powerful holo-Bulls that knock anyone away. New fangled portable holo-tech allows him to turn his training program on his enemies!
Even though it’s a but modern for his tastes, Lonestar has shot his way out of many a tight situation using his deadly and accurate space blaster!
Using the simple thrusters he integrated into his classic cowboy boots, Lonestar can do an extra jump in mid-air. Handy for traversing mountains of wrangled Bovinions!
Some of Lonestar’s purchasable items:
Increases the explosion size of dynamite.
“Free black van included.”
Techno Viking Helmet
Makes hyper bull deal damage.
“This helmet is property of chief Red Beard.”
Increase rate of fire of blaster.
“No Zurians were harmed during the testing other than the ones that were.”
