NICOSIA, Cyprus Feb. 20, 2024 – CRITICAL REFLEX has announced its partnership with indie developer Mike Klubnika to bring the viral horror game hit Buckshot Roulette to Steam and consoles. The popular “Russian roulette with shotguns” will release on Steam with new updates featuring gamepad support, Steam achievements, additional language support, a downloadable original soundtrack, and new items for the endless “Double or Nothing” mode. The Steam version will launch March 15, with the console version coming later this year.

Two enter. One leaves. Roll the dice with your life. Good luck.

Buckshot Roulette is Russian roulette with a 12-gauge shotgun. Dive into a gritty underworld nightclub. Face off against The Dealer. Brace yourself as you pull the trigger. Load the chamber, press your luck, double down. There’s no prize for second place.

Key Features:

  • Shotgun Showdown: Experience the thrill of Russian roulette reimagined with the raw power of a 12-gauge shotgun. Challenge your opponent across three intense rounds and either claim your victory or face the ultimate consequence.
  • Meet Your Match: Go head-to-head with The Dealer, playing the odds same as you. No tricks. Can you beat him at his own game?
  • Underground Vibes: Step into a shadowy underground nightclub, where the ambiance is charged with the vibrations of drum machines against cold metal railings.
  • Risk It All: Test your nerves in the Double or Nothing mode. How long can you last?
  • New Items: Discover unique items introduced with the Steam version, a special treat to those already familiar with the game.

Buckshot Roulette originally launched on itch.io in 2023 and quickly became a smash-hit experience with players, particularly on streaming platforms and YouTube. In addition to English, Buckshot Roulette’s Steam release will support French, Italian, German, Spanish, Estonian, Ukrainian, Russian, Korean, Japanese, Turkish, Polish, Brazilian Portuguese and both Simplified and Traditional Chinese.
