About this project
***Free shipping to U.S. Add $10 for international shipping on $40, $50 and $65 rewards, Add $20 for international shipping on everything higher***
EDIT (3/5/12): Just to be clear, these four weapons are not better than any of the main game's weapons. They are mostly aesthetic (I say mostly because a revolver can't have more than 6 bullets and an AK is inaccurate by design, for instance) and will be in complete balance with the rest of the game. If you have any of these 4 weapons, you will have no advantage over another player, just some more options for what guns to choose from =).
UPDATE #2: We have FOUR brand new weapons that only Kickstarter backers will be able to obtain. These weapons will bring forth devastation upon your enemies and really expand upon the plethora of weapons available to you already.
(See a picture of them in the "Updates" section)
$25+ Rewards get the REVOLVER: Dirty Harry approved, this bad boy, as a secondary weapon, will tear through blocks and players alike.
$65+ Rewards get theAK-1337: Classic in design, deadly in implementation. This assault rifle may be less accurate, but it is also much more powerful.
$90+ Rewards get the RCP-9000: The favored SMG of a certain spy in a 64 bit adventure, this gun rivals that of any assault rifle. High accuracy, large clip size, and a blazing fast firing rate are all key ingredients to the destruction of your enemies.
$150+ Rewards get the BEAM SABER: This is the only futuristic weapon that will ever see the light of day in Guncraft. Burn holes in your opponents and dice them into tiny blocks with this new melee weapon.
Update #3: The Guncraft model for the $150+ category finished, and it's awesome!! Check it out in the rewards section below or in the updates section!
Update #4: Gameplay trailer is ready! See the updates section for more info or just watch the trailer below!
Update #6: Gameplay trailer with MMGN.com is up and ready. Had a 90 minute playtest session with them and it was a blast. Check out the highlights.
Guncraft is a PC/XBLIG first person shooter utilizing voxel (cube-based) based levels and graphics as well as construction elements. We strive for this game to be a mainstream first person shooter experience utilizing all the best features of a voxel engine.
Other games have touted having fully destructible environments, but you could never create craters in the ground, blow giant holes in the side of buildings, or kill someone by destroying the ground underneath them and dropping them to their untimely doom. We have that. Voxel engines allow us complete and total environmental destruction. But wait, that's not all! We also have complete and total environmental CONSTRUCTION.
Not only can you build anything and everything using a variety of blocks, but you can also construct, what we call, Prefabs. These are full structures, custom-made by you, that can be placed in game if you have the resources for them. We also have rewards packages that allow you to build turrets, SAM sites, tanks, helicopters, drones, and much, much more.
When you've custom created your own level, share and destroy it with others through competitive online play! Don't be afraid of destroying your creations, because all destruction and on-the-fly construction is reset after every round. There will be many modes, varying from traditional deathmatch, king of the hill, and capture the flag, as well as a few unique game modes, not seen in any other FPS games, that we have yet to announce. There will also be leaderboards, and if we raise enough, full clan support, out of game chat rooms, and other features that will extend your experience beyond just playing the game.
We already have many features fully implemented and are well on our way to creating many more. We expect a beta to begin in March, with our full release by June at the latest (on PC). The XBLIG version of the game is still up in the air as far as a release date.
Well besides donating to our cause and getting cool prizes, there are also a plethora of unique in-game contributions you can help make for the game. Do you want YOUR FACE immortalized in one of the maps? We have a reward for that.Do you want an actual model done of yourself, that can be used in game? We have a reward for that too. You can even get your super awesome map put in the game or implement a gameplay feature of your own! We are offering a TON of ways to contribute to the game, besides monetarily.
Keep in mind though. Kickstarter is ALL OR NOTHING. If we don't make our goal, we get nothing and you guys don't get your awesome rewards. So be sure to spread the news!
We are currently around 60-70% done. The remaining time will go into finishing the remaining gameplay features we have (which will vary depending on how much this Kickstarter raises) and putting the finishing polish on the user interface graphics. These Kickstarter funds will go into the final development of the game and will allow us to afford our expenses to take it to that stage.
