For those of us lucky enough to have a significant other who plays video games, Faith and a .45 seemed like the perfect sort of co-op experience to share with a lover. This Bonnie and Clyde-esque cover based shooter was pitched as a romantic, prohibition era version of Gears of War.

While the setting was immediately attractive, it was the notion of playing a pair of lovers was incredibly original. Sometimes though, love ain’t enough; Faith and a .45 entered development hell when no publisher was willing to take a chance on romance.
