Totally forgot posting about this one!



It's a very short (5 mins) game I made for the 7dfps jam ("make an FPS in 7 days"). It has everything a decent FPS should have nowadays, but... Well, just see it for yourself.

Play it here

Made with libgdx, runs as an applet (sorry Smiley).

Wait, so how is this modern?

It has a nice graphics style, but some parts look a little off.

Can't try it right now, so I don't know what gameplay is like.

It will be better in other format, like desktop jar* or android since it is libgdx.

*) better again with libraries out from the jar Roll Eyes

There is a downloadable jar at the bottom of the page: http://thotep-7dfps.s3.amazonaws.com/modern_shooter.zip
And no, it totally wouldn't work on Android imo. You need a physical keyboard to play this. Smiley

Why not using Java Web Start?

Edit.: Ok it is a text-based first person shooter.

Reminds me of those adventure games on the C64, great memories -- except for the parts where they would stop out to ask you for some random word out of the manual Wink

That was quite cool.

Still don't see how it's modern though. Emo

Pretty sure it's sarcasm, HeroesGraveDev.

Busy between school, work, life, games, programming and general screwing around.
If you'd like some pixel art for your game, send me a PM, i'll see what I can do.

This is nothing like a modern shooter. You know why ? Because this is actually challenging D:

Quite enjoyed the game Thotep! Perhaps because it took me back to the days of Sierra's Police Quest II. Good job.  Cool

It is not only the hiding and shooting thing. The way just goes straight north. You don't really seem to have a choice.

I like this message, because it shows how much the most succesful games today resemble themselves and how they are not really difficult or challenging.

I've tried this game and all I got was two trojan warning by Windows Defender. Is it a Java security problem ? Anyone else has the same issue ?

I love it! But why would you not have the colt selected when you get it? I got stuck, but overall great game, and even better graphics!
