BALTIMORE,MD – October 16th, 2018 – Independent video game publisher Versus Evil, in partnership with independent developer Mild Beast Games, today announced that the BAFTA winning top down shoot ‘em up, “At Sundown“, is available today on PC and Mac through Discord’s new game store in a 90 day exclusivity deal on PC.
Discord, which now has over 150 million registered users, today launched the global beta of their new curated store and Nitro subscription service. The “First on Discord” program in the store will offer access to select high-quality indie games launching exclusively for PC on Discord for a limited time.

At Sundown is a top down stealth-based arena shooter in which up to 4 players compete in online and local deathmatch games. Players are under the cover of complete darkness and can only see themselves and be seen by their opponents when they shoot, dash or walk into or trigger a light source.
