If you know and like Rust, the survival video game by Facepunch Studios, then you should know that its developer have just revealed a new game prototype by the name of Deuce, which is stated to have a tennis crossed with Street Fighter gameplay.

“Deuce is an arcade style tennis game with a focus on unique characters and courts,” stated programmer Ian James.

Facepunch Studios is said to be working on several projects similar to Deuce, such as the arcade space shooter game by the name of Riftlight.

“So far I’ve got four special moves working to some degree. These are: Ice (freezes opponent on returning the ball), Tornado (sends the ball flying in a random direction), Teleport (switches the ball position mid flight) and Fireball.”

A sneak peek at Deuce’s design shows a Mexican character in a sombrero or luchador mask and a hillbilly American with a shotgun. The developer states that each character is planned to have their own matching location, having only a tennis court surrounded by rusting trailers showed off so far.

Facepunch has also assured that Deuce’s announcement will have no negative impact on Rust’s development. Garry Newman, Facepunch’s boss, stated that only 5 out of Facepunch’s 25 staff members had been taken off Rust to work on ‘other things’.

A commenter has also asked if Garry’s Mod, Rust and Riftlight have been cancelled prior to Deuce’s announcement, where Newman reply the following: “And Half-Life 3 sorry”.
