Switchblade Monkeys began as a group of friends who worked in the industry on a variety of games with different studios. Our goal was to make a game that would go toe to toe with the quality of any studio game while simultaneously addressing our burning need to be able to take risks and create something unique and fresh. Secret Ponchos takes place in a dramatic Spaghetti Western setting full of the tension, stylization and attitude reflective of a graphic-novel.
Secret Ponchos is slated to launch on the PS4 April 1, and potentially on the PC (we are currently in talks with Valve) around the same time. It’s the cartoon spaghetti-western third-person shooter you never knew you needed, until now.
You have control of your outlaw from an overhead view and can rotate 360 degrees as you traverse the map. Secret Ponchos is out now on PS4 and delivers a fun yet competitive experience just in time for the holidays, and it’s free for PlayStation Plus users. You’ll need to wait a little longer for your first taste of Western action on the PlayStation 4, as developer Switchblade Monkeys has confirmed that its next-gen shooter Secret Ponchos is taking a siesta for the time being.
For those out of the rootin’-tootin’ loop, the isometric shooter will see you pick a cowboy and battle in snazzy Spaghetti Western-inspired deathmatches.
A true PlayStation veteran, Sammy's covered the world of PS gaming for years, with an enormous Trophy count to prove it. Secret Ponchos is kind of a cool name, but why didn't this developer make a game named after their studio?
I miss read the article but then watched the video & it is free for PS Plus members glad I have PS Plus!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Each of us realized we had all this unfulfilled creative energy that needed to be resolved. Most importantly, our goal was to make a creative, unique game that we felt had raw appeal and that we would want to play.
In a town crawling with bandits, murderers and bounty hunters you are an outlaw with a bounty on your head and everyone is gunning to claim the prize.
Create and customize your outlaw to hunt down other players and collect the bounties on their heads.
In a town crawling with bandits, murderers and bounty hunters you are an outlaw with a bounty on your head and everyone is gunning for you. Put shortly it’s awesome, and Switchblade Monkeys have definitely got this right as it fits the setting and makes Secret Ponchos very nice to look at.
Gameplay is hectic, fast paced and requires quick reactions if you’re going to win gun fights. Originally expected to be part of April’s recently announced PlayStation Plus lineup, the studio confirmed on Twitter that the gunslinger isn’t quite ready for a showdown with the PlayStation Store just yet.


Filling your opponents full of lead will reward you with reputation points, which can then be invested into customising your character’s looks and abilities. If your comment doesn't appear right away, please be patient as it may take a few minutes to publish or may require moderation.
I don't really need another twin stick shooter but with Playstation Plus I will definitely be checking it out. Especially like that it's gonna be free, although, I think it is really going to make me want to play an open world western game. To do so, we knew we had to make something outside of the studio and corporate development environment. In order to survive you must be the best, defeating those who stand in your way–claiming their achievements as your own.
By combining this with range and timing mechanics, Secret Ponchos unites the strategic elements of overhead camera games, the team dynamics of 1st person shooters and the responsiveness of a fighting game. In order to survive you must be the best and to gain notoriety you must defeat your opponents–claiming their achievements as your own. It’s being powered by Sony’s proprietary PhyreEngine, but sadly there’s no word on a new date. As far as top-down, multiplayer PS4 shooters go, it's gonna be hard to top Assault Android Cactus imo.
So we gathered the horses, circled the wagons, and got to making our passion project: Secret Ponchos. The result is a new type of multiplayer combat game that feels exciting, intuitive, and strangely familiar.
Players can compete in 1vs1 duels, engage in western style gang fights, or enter the fray with the Free-For-All mode. You start the game with the elegant and dark outlaw selection menu, which highlights the most fun part of the game: the outlaws themselves. There are five outlaw characters to choose from, each carefully balanced and designed to stand apart from each other. Balance between all characters is something many games strive for, and I believe Secret Ponchos accomplishes that. This lets you test your skills and focus on tactical elements of gameplay, which is what Secret Ponchos is really about. It’s not just a twin-stick shooter, it’s also a fighting game, meaning you need to be able to deal with close combat, stealth, and traversing the level to become the top outlaw.Not only does the character design instantly translate the personality of each bandit, but the sound design is plucky and immersive as well.
It reminds you of the best soundtracks of old spaghetti Western movies and provides the perfect courageous spurring for kicking other outlaws’ butts. And every menu movement plays a sound that fits with the song, so you can provide instrumental backup if you want.


This provides entertainment while waiting for matchmaking, which, if you’ve played the game before the recent patch, you know that matchmaking was taking quite a while. No surprise, considering it’s an indie game with less than 10 developers trying to handle its recent skyrocketing server load due to being a free PS Plus game this month.
Matchmaking now gets you to your next match quickly.Varied Outlaws Test Your Skill in the Dusty WestAll of the different game modes provide enough variation and challenge to dispel any initial misconceptions about the game not being able to hold your attention. Games that are simply online matches can seem that way, but this one is finely tuned to offer much entertainment.
From my experience, free-for-all best represents the experience Secret Ponchos should be known for. Wild, fast-paced skirmishes where everyone is your enemy seems to embody the spirit the devs were trying to go for.
You have to be quick on the draw and have confidence in your outlaw’s abilities.One unique tactic I came to love was hiding. However, my favorite outlaw, Phantom Poncho, blends in to the environment with a swift flourish of his poncho and a sleepy tip of his sombrero. Waiting silently against a wall while the battle comes closer and blasting an unsuspecting victim repeatedly with my shotgun was great fun, and helped me tip the outcome of the match in my favor on more occasion than one.You might be thrown off by the lack of a tutorial, but there is a practice mode. So before you go fumbling into a real match, change your game choice to a local practice match and test each character out few times. This mode is not made obvious, perhaps in the same spirit as being thrown into the water in the beginning to learn how to swim.
Ranked mode provides more of a gamble with your bounty in order to get more experience, which you can use to increase your outlaw’s stats. If you never gain enough money to reach the next skill point reward, you are stuck with the same old stats, giving you no new helpful advantage in battle.
Yet another way Secret Ponchos adds to the down and dirty, rough-going feel of being an outlaw. While there are currently limited characters, levels, and modes, the game still scratches that itch and keeps you coming back for more. What is currently there is very polished and refined.The setting, art style, sound design, and balanced characters in a unique gameplay style make this game a really great game to own. I love when games seem to walk into my life and satisfy some gaming desire I didn’t know I had. Secret Ponchos is a refined, intricate twin-stick shooter rooted in the Old West that, for those who enjoy simple, yet tactical, online battles, will stand on its own for a time to come.Secret Ponchos review copy downloaded for free with PlayStation Plus membership (December 2014 only).
