Enter the Gungeon is a roguelike bullet-hell video game developed by Dodge Roll and published by Devolver Digital. It was first released for Microsoft and Playstation 4 in 2016 and received Xbox One and Nintendo Switch releases the following year.

An Xbox One port was released a year later on April 5th, 2017, and a port for the Nintendo Switch was released on December 14th, 2017. The game received post-release content in the form of the January 2017 "Supply Drop" update and the July 2018 "Advanced Gungeons and Dragons" update.
