Guncraft Now on Steam Greenlight, Pre-Order For $10

By - Source: Exatogames | B 14 comments

Guncraft returns from PAX and lands on Steam Greenlight.

Earlier this year, Exatogames pitched an idea on Kickstarter for a Minecraft-like FPS game. Combining the imaginative construction elements of Minecraft with the fast-paced action of a modern FPS, Guncraft began its free open beta testing in July. Last month, the team made its way over to PAX and strategically obtained a booth right next to Minecraft.

Guncraft Beta Launch Trailer

In an interview with Joystiq, Guncraft creator John Getty said:

"Our main purpose of getting a booth next to Mojang is to provide an open forum for comparison. We want to show the people exactly how different we are from Minecraft. We've always wanted an avenue to voice our opinions about 'rip-offs' and how we aren't one. Just as Notch borrowed from Infiniminer, we borrowed some of the construction and aesthetic elements of Minecraft and put our own unique spin on them."

"We do also want to talk with Mojang, so that's another reason we are neighbors. I really hope nobody thinks our primary purpose is to mooch off Minecraft, but I'm sure there will be some that do."

Now, the game is on Steam Greenlight, where it has achieved 1% of the necessary positive ratings required to make its way onto the platform. It still has a long way to go for a release on Steam, but you can pre-order the game directly from Exatogames for a limited discount price of $10.

    what's the thing with the block and construction theme?
    there was minecraft, it sold good, many played it(i didn't), that's the end.
    why some would thing they could turn it into a shooter and it would sell?
    and they say it's not a rip-off? is it a rape-off?
    and the trailer! what are you thinking, that this is funny? not even for a ten year old.

    if this game allowed world building like minecraft, and wasn't locked down, i would get it just based on i love fps games that don't rely on graphics to be great.

    Ace of Spades is good, out and free. Also if they wanted to be all unique and not be labelled a ripoff why did you name the title Guncraft... seriously. They are just riding the coattails of Mojang's trademarking.

    "Linux, no (sorry guys). " Quoted from their faq on their website.
    Shame. I was about to fork out 10$ to buy the game, then read that. Ah well, their loss I guess.

    well, first off, getting the top score in a match
    being a part of a team and doing crap that requires a team effort
    the sense of accomplishment from being in the right place at the right time.

    now if they also had minecraft quality world editor

    -making a map and seeing people enjoy playing on it
    -adding guns and scenarios to the game that are interesting for everyone to use

    hell, you could even give us a 5 mile wide area
    and either above ground or below ground we have to run and build our new spawn points
    and the only way that you really loose is if your team has no more spawn rooms.
    a spawn room is a 10x10x5 room, that has to be built in an exact way, and 5 people need to place at least 1 block each to make it.
    and you can make as many spawn points as you want, and they only stop working when they have 50% total damage, at which point they violently explode in a 40x40x40 block radious, give and take but minimum they take out 32000 blocks

    there you go, i gave you a game mode where building a base and complex as fast as you can to help shield your spawn is important, and that you cant just make a i dont care at all base.

    a new way to play team death match.

    wow, and i pulled that out of my (dont want sanction) in less than 10 minutes, and i would guarentee that it would be the most played mode in the game.

    i would also make a mechanic that if the start base got destroyed all other spawns would take 25% damage.
