Receiver experimental FPS now on Steam!

Posted by , / 4163 views
Receiver was created for the 7-day FPS challenge to explore gun handling mechanics, randomized levels, and unordered storytelling. Armed only with a handgun and an audio cassette player, you must uncover the secrets of the Mindkill in a building complex infested with automated turrets and hovering shock drones.

Key Features

  • Detailed simulations of a Colt 1911 pistol, S&W Model 10 "Victory" revolver, and Glock 17 with full-auto mod

  • Taser robots and machine gun turrets with physically-based damage models

  • Ballistic modeling of ricochets and bullet drop

  • 11 audio tapes to prepare you to defend yourself against the inevitable Mindkill event

  • Become literate in how guns actually operate




So you can now get the game on Steam directly, if you purchase via their websites Humble Store widget you get access to a Steam key too!

not sure if its instant death or not, so from 1st shot that hits you, if thats the case I think I would be frustrated really fast.

Bumadarnot sure if its instant death or not, so from 1st shot that hits you, if thats the case I think I would be frustrated really fast.

From what I remember, you do have some kind of threshold, so you can sometimes take a couple of hits before dying.

Really though, this is just a tech demo of how you can implement real gun play mechanics into a game.
