I don't care **** for sci-fi shooters... and I'm probably never gonna play yours.

But I think you guys are doing something awesome and I want to support you for your own love of your own game.

And you've got a very cool and professional website too!

Well... here goes nothing.

I've read up on the project a little bit and decided to go ahead and throw my support out. An indie-ish FPS that features persistent characters and their abilities, co-op, and open levels? Good luck and may this game turn out as awesome as I'm hoping it will. Land-sharks and all.

I have to say, I've been keeping an eye on this game since I saw the first trailer back in 2005. When I didn't see any activity I started to worry but I'm just glad this game is still alive. I really hope it comes out for the Xbox 360 but even if it doesn't I'll still buy it. Keep up the good work and show us a trailer now and again to reassure us.

I just heard about this game about 20 minutes ago, and as you see, already upgraded to spearhead.

I was just thinking about how games set in the future just get everything wrong and look totally unbelievable. Thank you for not putting random lights or tactically unacceptable colors on the armor. The weapons, honestly, almost look TOO conservative but this is much better than the alternative (pew pew lasers).

Love the game idea, love the devs' attitudes, looking forward to this.

I agree with TacticalSpoon, too many dev's create gear for their worlds, Mass effect im looking at you. Simple and clean thats what looks mostly relatable, but i do agree that the weapons do look alittle conservative, but okay we have only had guns for 200 years and if you look at it, weapon design hasn't really changed during the last 50 or so years its just new and improved models!

@ A_Shepard: 200 years? Oh no my friend, you are mistaken. After doing a quick internet search, the earliest date I see for a recorded firearm is 1364. Granted, at that time traditional bows and crossbows were much more practical than guns were, but the lineage goes back far longer than 200 years. As for firearm innovation in the last 50 years, I can really only say I half agree with your viewpoint. But I digress, my wall of text on that subject will have to wait for the actual forums.

Just give me a gun, a good story, some memorable enemies and environments, friendly AI that can actually shoot back, hit something and actually help out in a firefight and you guys should have a game that's done everything other games can't.

Did I mention communication? Unscripted communication (i.e. calling for help, calling out positions of hostiles, reloading call and some useful dialogue and verbal help) in this game would be a key that holds it together. Nothing destroys immersion more than a gunfight without shouts of helpful information.

Big agree for communication. Soldiers are trained to shout communication during firefight as much as possible. Always calling out contacts, ammo count, moving position, covering. A quiet squad is a DEAD squad. The NPC teammates should always be talking to Player character with voice and radio chatter. Really help immerse the player.

Hey guys, love what you're doing here, I think that it's great to have you guys making this game, it looks amazing and sounds like you're working diligently on giving us something that we'll remember for a very long time. I especially like having the open ended levels, I've always hated feeling boxed in by some stupid two-foot tall wall of awesome invisible power! Haha, well, good luck to ya, can't wait for the game!

No, but beeing indie, it will certainly not be expensive for an AAA title. In fact, you can already "upgrade" your account to support the development and receive a great bunch of advantages - among them, the first game or the entire trilogy, for Frontliner and Spearhead accounts respectively. We don't know if the pricing will change after the release.

so whats the difference between spearhead and frontliner?

Badge
Avatar

4 years, 5 months ago

Basically, Frontliners invest in the development of the first game, while Spearheads do for the development of the whole planned trilogy. Naturally, you "only" get the first game "for free" if you upgrade to a Frontliner account. Spearheads slots are also limited. Besides that, however, Frontliners have access to the same extra contents.

The whole independent concept is a win-win situation, with so much garbage in games today I am looking forward badly for this game !

This looks really great man. You made me really curious. The only thing I'm still wondering (as an anarchist) about the intentions and organisation are: are your motives anti-capitalist? and is your organisational level collective and non-hierarchical? or is it just another 'free'-market project with bosses in regular clothes?

The material all looks very nice I must say by the way. You people are doing a great job on that so far. I'm just wondering if you are truely as revolutionary ;)

Can u please put deadlock on mac app store, because i don't like opening my web browser every time i wan't to play these games. I just wan't to be able to click on the app and open it. I will happily pay $5 to be able to play it as a standalone game rather that in my browser. Because i can't be bothered typing in your website, logging in, clicking on deadlock, waiting for it to load on my slowish internet, i know it caches (however you spell it) the game so it doesn't take so long to load but it still loads a bit. It also runs slower than a standalone game. Then for Interstellar Marines: First Contact i will pay $30 if you put it on the mac app store, and if you think apple taking 30% is not good, then just make it 30% more expensive. Because i don't have a credit card or pay pal so i can't buy it from steam or whatever, i only can buy gift cards that i redeem for itunes credit. I will happily pay to support the creation of this game, but i just can't buy support medals and things. So by doing this u may also attract the attention of some mac users that have not heard of this game, then you may get some more money. So please read this and not ignore this comment, and think about if u think it's a good idea putting it on the mac app store. You could have links and things in the app, and you could make it so you need to have an account to play it, so then people would come to your website to make an account and see lots more about the game and who you are and what is your vision.
