New Server Tools are Live!

Greetings Minimum Players!

We are excited to announce that after some great feedback during beta, a new build is up on the main branch, and Minimum is back up in the store (with a "welcome back" sale price!). If you didn't get a chance to check out the beta, here are some highlights:

  1. Player Hosted Servers: All servers are now hosted by other Minimum
    players. This should add some flexibility, and give players more options on how to play.

  2. All New Server Browser: A new visual interface allows players to see what servers are available, who’s on them, and what rules are in play.

  3. Updated Server Launcher: Quickly access key server options from a visually intuitive launcher. The Launcher.exe gives you the tools to host a server, along with options like max players, target score, time limit, and more, and should make it easier for server hosts to create more customized game types.

  4. New Admin Interface: Server have access to a new visual interface that allows them to access key admin options, participate in chat, manage the map cycle and more. (By pressing the left ALT button or typing in "ToggleAdmin " in the console.
We're continuing to work on the game, and we expect regular updates in the coming weeks and months. Please keep the great feedback coming, we couldn't do it without the amazing Minimum community!

New Build, New Browsers!

Greetings Minimum Users!

After a few weeks of beta, we’ve taken some great feedback from the community and made some significant updates to the game. Our big focus has been on visualization and transparency for the new server system (Please note, this is still on the BETA BRANCH). Among other fixes:

  1. All New Server Browser! A new visual interface allows players to see what servers are available, who’s on them, and what rules are in play (standard “automatch” is still available).

  2. Updated Server Launcher interface Quickly access key server parameters from a visually intuitive launcher. The Launcher.exe will include options like max players, target score, time limit, and more, and should make it easier for server hosts to create more customized game types.

  3. New Server Admin Interface Server have access to a new visual interface that allows them to access key admin options, participate in chat, manage the map cycle and more. (By pressing the left ALT button or typing in ToggleAdmin in the console.
We are aware of the concerns some players have expressed regarding the inventory reset. Unfortunately, the majority of this data was tied in with the server system that was shut down by the third party partner, and is no longer available. We are able to view some of this via Steam, and are investigating, but we don't have a fix for this at present. It is a top priority and we will keep players posted.

Again, we want to thank all of our core players for supporting the ongoing growth of Minimum. Let us know what you think of the new build, and thanks again!

About This Game

Are you a fan of old-school twitch shooters like Unreal Tournament and Tribes? What about team focused MOBAs like DotA and League of Legends? Would you like to play a game that combines elements of both genres while adding crafting, customization, giant robots and a bold new art style to the mix?

Of course you would, and Minimum is just the game you've been searching for!

Minimum focuses on fast-paced shooting fun and a robust system of in-match crafting, team objectives and customizable roles to create a rich and rewarding PvP experience. You'll find a bunch of interesting weapons to collect and customize, armor sets to mix and match, a solid core game mode known at TITAN MODE and more all wrapped up in a unique, minimalist artistic style that's more than the sum of its parts. Some of our coolest features include:

Customizable Weapons


Craft dozens of lethal weapons with unique abilities and roles to best fit your personal playstyles. Each weapon has 5 power levels that are activate during kill streaks, increasing your power making you a force to be feared. Be careful though: weapon power levels are lost upon death, so with great power comes great risk!

Blueprint Crafting System


Gather materials from fallen foes and defeated objectives to craft and upgrade armor sets over the course of a match. Each set of armor has different benefits and weaknesses that can emphasize your favorite playstyle or counter what your enemies are trying to do.

Titan Mode


Battle in epic matches centered on the your team's Titan, a giant, destructive robot that confronts the enemy's Titan. Players can power up their Titan by performing tasks in-game, can defend their mammoth ally by killing enemy players, and can attack enemy Titans directly. The teams compete until one side's Titan reaches the enemy base and destroys it!

5v5 Competitive Gameplay


Create cunning strategies with your teammates and define your unique role on the team by combining different weapons, armor and devices. Support your teammates weapons that increase drop rates for materials and powerups, defend your Titan with armor that grants additional health and survivability, scout enemy positions with weapon and armor that increase speed and allow for double or triple jumps, or simply go glass cannon and dish out as much damage as you can!

A Player-Focused Development Team


We want Minimum to be the most player-focused game on Steam! Join us on our Steam community discussion forums to talk shop, weigh in on new features, report bugs and balance problems or just chat. Minimum is a game that will evolve with its community, both while in Early Access and beyond.

I have played the game since the earliest stages and it was great fun until the servers were shut down. However, the developers have been taking steps to bring back the servers. Althought the game is simplistic in some areas and could be greatly improved, the progress made on it since early access cannot be neglected. I recommend this game to anyone who seems a bit interested (as soon as functionality is restored) because it truly is a great game to play with friends.

Many thanks and best wishes to the developers.

Do NOT listen to any of the "The Game Is Dead!" reviews. While the servers have been down for a while, they will return shortly (as of making this post).

Minimum lives up to it's name of being a fast-paced shooter. It includes some MOBA elements in non-intrusive and unique ways. The combat is great and sometimes rage inducing, but once you get the hang of things it can be hard to put down.

The game's developers have a great hand when it comes to design. You can play as a dinosaur with armor, or a sneaky ninja assasain. You can even mix and match them to be a dinosaur wearing a Shinobi mask, or a Shinobi mask wearing a dinosaur... wait... that's not right....

The game has unlockable/craftable weapons that you earn by leveling up and participating in matches. You get resources such as shards and cubes to build these weapons, and for every level up you get a red cube that can be used to buy a new weapon blueprint. There is no crafting time, however if you don't want to level up you could also buy a skin from the market for around a dollar or hit up the Steam Marketplace for sometimes lower prices.

This game is great for LAN Parties as well, and offers 3 different game modes - Team Deathmatch, Titan, and Horde.

Overall I would rate this game 8/10 mainly because of the small community and preformance on lower end machines for it being such a simple looking game. Balance was in a near-perfect state the last I played this game other than the Plasma Launchers wrecking everything, but that might be just me.

It's not abandoned anymore! They're gonna bring back the servers in a few weeks. If you're reading this when the update happened well then I gotta change this review into a real review and not news.

For those of you who have given this great game horrible ratings, yes it has been down for quite some time, but it is also about to come back up within the next few weeks. I personally reccomend this game it's a great game and is easy to play. Unless you don't want to wait three weeks until you can play don't buy.

The servers are back up, but they are player hosted :(. It is really fun and you can usually find a game, but don't expect too many players.
