Shotgun Farmers, a first-person shooter where your bullets dig into the ground to grow new guns has a super fun Easter event going on where you all have a great big 'Carrocket Launcher'.

This is a limit-time event, that will be available until April 24. Not only that, there's a new outfit to unlock too with the 'BUN BUN' which is only unlockable during this Easter event. So if collecting is your thing, you might want to get playing. My own FOMO is rising right now I will admit. What's wonderful about Shotgun Farmers though, is that all cosmetics are entirely free to earn when you play (there's no micro-transactions here).

So you too can join in and get an awesome shot like this I did earlier today, which is also a Steam Achievement due to it being a sort of rocket-jump like manoeuvre:

Amongst other fixes, there's also a few more improvements. There's a randomize button available in the customization menu, to give you a really wild look. Sadly, cheaters hit their leadboard system so it's currently offline until they bring in a better solution. They also improved hats to fit on the Werewolf skin, Outfit icons were improved, disconnection issues should now give an error code to provide the developer with to track down issues easier and improve it further and the Profile menu will now show how many other farmers you sent to the grave with your shovel.

Shotgun Farmers is easily one of the most unique first-person shooters around. It supports Linux, it's cheap and it's fun. Pick up a copy on Humble Store or Steam.

This is like a game I used to fantasize about while working for a grocery store: all your weapons would be things you pulled off the shelves, so you could for instance grab a 12-pack of soda cans and launch them like grenades which would make the floor sticky over time, but which you could clean up by launching paper towel rolls at them, etc. :)

Would also be open to some kind of ad-hoc crafting system.
Condoms + Cola + Mentos = timed bomb.
