PlaySide Publishing has shared a new gameplay teaser for MOUSE, providing a short look at some of the brand-new and improved gameplay mechanics that are in development for the 1930s noir-fueled, cartoon-inspired “grandboomer” FPS from Fumi Games ahead of its release on Steam in 2025. Prospective players can discuss MOUSE at its official Discord, which launched today alongside the new footage.

Gameplay features include:

  • Grappling Hook – Enables attachment to designated points for rapid movement and traversal.
  • Helicopter – Reduces descent speed and facilitates extended aerial traversal.
  • PowerUp Spinach – Used to augment and enhance melee gameplay.

The gameplay teaser showing these in action:

Mateusz Michalak, CEO of Fumi Games, said:

  • “MOUSE is incredibly important to all of us here at Fumi Games, and we’re committed to making sure that it lives up to expectations.”
  • “Our goal has always been to create a game that combines our passion for animation with our passion for first-person shooters.”
  • “Our partner PlaySide and our dedicated and talented team is working hard to bring you the finest grandboomer cartoon shooter ever created!”

Fumi on its new FPS:

…MOUSE boasts a unique visual style inspired by the charm of 1930s rubber hose animation, transporting players to a nostalgic era of early cartoons. Players assume the role of a private detective navigating a noir city teeming with violent mobsters and a host of characters from the criminal underbelly.

Unravel a quest for justice in a city mired in corruption and chaos. Utilize a diverse arsenal of weapons, power-ups, and explosives to thwart the takeover ambitions of corrupt politicians. The game’s playful weaponry, uniquely animated UI, and cartoon-inspired enemy behavior add a lighthearted twist to the FPS genre.
