The fine folks at Ronimo have dropped Awesomenauts PC players a cute, murderous gift in the form of a new playable character, Gnaw. Apparently, his gameplay will be centered around poisoning and ensnaring enemy players, all while staying relatively mobile and, for the most part, just plain annoying. Gnaw looks perfect for antagonizing enemy players and keeping their entire team busy so that your allies can push forward and destroy the ever obtrusive turrets found throughout all of Awesomenauts’ maps.
Also accompanying Gnaw’s gnarly addition is the inclusion of a minor patch to be made available later today. The patch will contain “various minor fixes” with a larger update planned for release very soon according to Ronimo. Awesomenauts and Gnaw will both be playable at this year’s Gamescon in Valve’s booth for anyone still on the fence about purchasing the 2D MOBA styled mashup. As of now, there’s no word on if console players will get to spew poison ooze with the doglike little critter anytime soon, but one would assume that he’d be made available as some paid DLC some time in the near future.
