I really like the feel and look of this game. I also really like how the wide variety of weapons with different strengths, and the upgrade/ability things allow you to sort of make your own class to fit your playstyle. I think this game would also be great if it had online co-op, or maybe LAN so you can play with your friends. Also maybe a bit of a story, like a background on the character, maybe about the enemies and who/what they are. Such a great game though. :)

Thanks for the comment and the feedback! The game was actually built with online co-op in mind but we didn't have enough time to get it working properly during the 7 days. Hoping to get back to it soon enough!


Just a great game. Loved the atmosphere and the music. The random level generation is really interesting. Overall a fun experience.

Thanks for playing and thanks for the video! Now I know that the snow/fog effect doesn't work properly on ultrawide monitors :p


Great game - the random level generation is amazing and the mix of weapons adds huge variation to each play-through :)

Thanks a lot!


this was a cool game! love the many choices of guns and the rpg element, shoot was pretty cool. i'd would suggest to spice it up by having some sound....action type sound (royalty free of course), create a story in the game and learn about the character. Great Job!!!

Thank you for the comment and the video! always love receiving more feedback


I spent a good 40 minutes playing this game it was really fun

I really enjoy this game. The Difficulty is just right. Guns are fun to use and pretty balanced.The furthest I've gotten so far is level six. One thing though, when you're in the game and you pause, there's a button to start the game. I clicked that the first time because I thought that'd resume the game.You might wanna change that so it resumes the game instead of restarting it. You also might wanna add a save feature.


Thanks! Yes there's some UX mistakes with the menus, we'll probably address them with updates :)


SO much fun! This game feels so great to play, and is a pretty genuine challenge. Only got to level 8 so far, gonna try and get further >:)
