Gonner is a roguelike video game developed by Art in Heart and published by Raw Fury Games. It was released on October 12, 2016 for Microsoft Windows, macOS and SteamPLAY. A Nintendo Switch version of the game has been announced without specifying a release date. The game has been described as a "shooter" version of Spelunky.
The rogue-like features of the game introduce different heads and limbs that can be unlocked over multiple playthroughs and in game that act as a passive item, causing bullets to be larger, for faster shooting and many other abilities. There are four worlds in Gonner and players move on to the next one by killing the current world's end boss.
GoNNER was shown at PAX East 2016. It was released on October 12, 2016 on Steam and GOG.com, and was released on the Humble Store on October 13.
GoNNER received positive reviews from reviewers. Adam Smith of Rock, Paper, Shotgun thought the game always felt good, and said that playing the game was "an absolute delight". Preston Dozsa of Hooked Gamers awarded the game a rating of 8.5/10 and believed GoNNER was not a game for everyone due to the frequency of deaths. He continued on to say that "for those who persevere, GoNNER is a rewarding, challenging experience that is a blast to play".
