A downloadable game for Windows

The official "Showdown Bandit" Demo!

Something unnatural is stirring on the abandoned sets of the once popular kids puppet show, Showdown Bandit. Play as the awakened Bandit in this stealth-action-horror where your only hope of survival is entangled within the 3 rules of the show: Play your part. Guard your strings. And don’t look up!

Best played with a two-button mouse.
(The "E" key can be used in place of a right mouse click.)


About this Game:

Beware! For years kids tuned in to watch the televised puppet world of Showdown Bandit, whose colorful cast performed in front of a live audience of ecstatic children. Then without warning the show was unceremoniously canceled and the studio, props and puppets were left to rot. Yet somehow the show lives again and you're in the spotlight. Take control of the Bandit himself and explore the dilapidated sets of what was once glorious Showdown Valley in this top-down, stealth-action-horror game from the makers of Bendy.

Try not to lose your wits or your strings as you sneak through the shadowy sets past a menagerie of eerie enemies and helpful inhabitants. Fight ONLY when you must! Don't be afraid to explore the creepiest, darkest corners as even the smallest clues could help you answer the biggest question of all ... who is really pulling the strings?

Cool game I would've played more of it but my finger was getting sore from clicking so much and was confused a little bit towards the end lol. I enjoyed it keep up the great work! Maybe add keyboard controls in the future maybe? :D

This game is very surreal & also very unique in that there is hardly anything like it out there. I hope you enjoy the video & do take the time to download & try for yourself!

I have seen other people play it even though I haven't played yet, but I know it will be fun!

Pretty cool game. A lil too slow paced for my taste but dope game overall.

This was a very unique experience! I'm used to most horror games here on itchio being kind of exactly alike, this one definitely stands out. It's clear that a lot of time, effort, and care went into making this as solid of an experience as one can get. Here's my playthrough:

Played the Demo as part of a 3 Free Indie Horrors. It's really cool and very well made. I do however have some point of concern which I express at the end of my video below. if you're looking for honest and in-depth feedback, I give just that!

With All Thanks to the Creator of the Game!!

The game is great voice acting , graphics , mechanics and atmosphere it's so well done had fun playing it rated 5/5 i hope you enjoy my gameplay :D

noice....BUT!!!!!!! can you make showdown bandit more cheaper so i can afford your game? thank you. THE SHOWDOWN BANDIT IS SO FRICKEN CUTE!!!!!!!!:3

Really Really Really good! The atmosphere is great, the creativity put into here is fantastic! I really admire the use of the strings of your puppet as the health bar and actively making them disappear! 

That guy with the scythe has also cared me on MANY occasions!

Just want to give you a little heads up too, when you're on one of the balconies above a door you can actually still select to go through the door even though you are currently not in front of it.
