Feedback Shotgun Evolved (2-4 players /top-down shooter)

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am Blue Apple a novice developer in the group Cute Software, and I'm here to share with you our new game: "Shotgun Evolved", it's a top-down-shooter where you fight your friends (in the same computer) in a 2 to 4 players arena through different maps and game-modes

-Controls: Every player got 6 keys (on the keyboard or on the controller), 2 to turn right or left, 2 to walk forward or backward, 1 to shoot and 1 to interact with objects, they are a bit hard to get used to, but this gives you an excuse for losing every time :P

-Game-play: The goal is simple, "fight until the other players lose all their lives", you can lose a life in different ways depending on the game-mode (being killed, an opponent capturing an outpost...)

-Items : There are 3 items, the 'up' item that is thrown by the players when they die which upgrades your shotgun, the 'heal' item that is dropped by bots(pirates,skeletons...) which heals you, and the 'life' item that spawns somewhere on the map every 10 s which gives you an extra life

-Extra : You can change some settings before starting, like the number of lives, the speed of capture, deactivate players'names/objects/bots and activate "hyper speed" which makes everything two times faster

      Hi all! Long time no post. We've been on extended hiatus from game development for several years, but came out of hiding to develop a fun little browser game. It's called surviv.io, and you can find it (appropriately) at http://surviv.io. It's strongly influenced by way too many hours spent playing PUBG. Spawn in, grab some loot, and be the last person standing. Please check it out and let us know what you think!
