Squirrel with a Gun is a funny game. The title explains the gameplay: you play as one of the furry nut-loving creatures, but this one can carry and operate rifles. This is a full-size pistol, which is what makes it so funny.
The trailer shows our gun-toting hero running around with a variety of firearms. At one point, it's wielding an Uzi in a somewhat dangerous manner, demonstrating how the recoil of the guns can be used to elevate the squirrel into the air.

A squirrel is also seen removing several Matrix-style agents, one of whom is seen engaging in melee combat with the creature in another scene.
In the teaser, there are also puzzles, and it looks like the main character will be able to disguise himself. One section shows it wearing a headband with tiny, cute ears that cover his actual tiny, cute ears.
Daniel DeEntremont, an indie developer who describes Squirrel with a Gun as a sandbox game that focuses on exploration and shooting combat.
Squirrel with a Gun's success could be attributed to its inclusion on Xbox Game Pass and PlayStation Plus, as well as a sequel, which will be released later this year.
The Squirrel with a Gun Steam page states its release date as "Good Question!" so don't expect the game to arrive until the game is released.
