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.

It was pretty popular when it first came out, but they had a few problems with servers shut this game down for about 2 years. Now in 2016 this game gets about a 19 player average a day and this game relies on mulitplyer. This company has not announced anything about refunds for there blow out game but they should because this game is basically unplayable.

Honestly they should just shut down the servers because they are probably losing money at this point.

Now I'm deleted my review and placing a new one. Come little closer and listen up:
-This game is a good game with a good idea but devs are too lazy to do some uptades
-Market is dead for this game
-They said we are making mini beta with every week update but there is nothing to see, funny huh?
-moba+tps=Minimum
-nobody is playing this game now...
-This is an Atari game and I wanted to see what can Atari make... and I found lot of fun for several hours with lot of people in 2015
-I'm going to give + because still you can fix your game (and why mini beta is not mini? (what a joke))

Thanks for reading my review for Minimum. Dont forget to comment what you are thinking.

Note:This game is totally dead for a while but if you have a friend group you can make a lobby and you can fight (there is a pve mod too)

I guess this game deserves a review that explains a few things:

Tl;Dr: The devs had problem funding it and most bad reviews is because the game shut down for a while and most people say it died, the game is good and simply needs more people playing it.

So back then this game had a few players, not much but it had them, basically a small decent community. The game used to be owned by Atari, if I am not mistaken, and Atari decided to stop funding it. Suddenly a few people start giving it a thumbs down saying that the game is dead and it wont come back. Yet the developers found another company willing to help fund it, and now the game is back up and running, the problem being that when most of it's previous players found out that the game "shut down" they didn't bother checking if it came back.

i'll be honest giving a game thumbs down or saying it is bad because it has a low player base is wrong, the devs didn't implement that into their game, it should simply be a warning sing. Now the question is, is it good?
♥♥♥♥ YEAH IT'S GOOD
The game allows the player to literally play their way, by allowing them to customize their loadouts with multiple guns and swords to choose, and armor sets with different stats and models. It has a quake feeling to it because of the crazy gun play, but third person. The concept for the game is creative and pretty original for one game mode, that being Titan Mode which is the most played, you have to kill these creeps and collect titan power up to make your titan more powerful, players will fight for the creeps, specially the golden creep which gives the titan a power up. the other 2 game modes are survival (Horde) and Team Deathmatch. The game does have a lot a space for skill gameplay, it may seem sometimes very casual, but when you play the game you realize it requires more skill than it seems.

The only bad thing about this game is that it feels oddly optimized, when I'm in the menu it drops to 10 Fps but in game I have 30 Fps, thing is that I have ran heavier games and they run at 40-60 fps. Crashed very little time and the game has never gotten stuck on me. Other than that the game is fine.

ie played it for a short while, but its still amazing, and yes, there are some hindsights tho.

TL;DR: very fun. not many players, if you think you're gonna like it, you most likely will.

Pros-
very fun
multiplayer
lan multiplayer
CUSTIMIZAAAATION!!!!
very nice people
no jerks or weirdos
very clean UI and menues

Cons-
very small player base
2 out of the 3 game modes are almost never used (deathmatch and horde)

all in all, its pretty great theres just so few people playing it, its hard to get something new everytime you play it, you're probably going to meet the same people playing the game alot, so you can make friends!
but please, if you think your interested, buy the game, your most likely going to love it. And if you do, theres one more person to play the game with :3

If you are interested in buying this game, don't be deterred by the mixed review label, as the developers made some massive updates a couple of months ago, and in that time a lot of people got angry and wrote a bad review of the game.
Also, I think the game is pretty gr8

There are TWO servers.
Game is glitched.

You will crash frequently.
Wait until the game is actually finished.

I was looking for a game to play in my retirement from Quake Live. Something more casual, but competitive and fun. Although I never retired from Quake (who was I kidding?), Minimum delivers on this front. It's both simple (can only have two weapons in a given spawn), yet has a high ceiling for skill level. The swords (katanas) and range of weapons make for interesting near, mid, and distance range battles. And the graphics and game atmosphere have an appealing simple clean aesthetic. I hope the player-base increases.

TL;DR A Voxel Unreal Tornament.

Minimum has had a huge downtime recently only coming back online in the last month or so, despite that the game feels great and the small player base(In Australia) is always active, Titan mode is great for the more teamwork based players, whereas your typical deathmatch is perfect for Solo and Teamplay, Maps are beautiful and quite well designed, some armor upgrades are debatingly Over Powered same with certain Weapons.

Even after its previous mishap i believe 10USD isn't a high price to pay for this game, its fun, nuts, quick to jump into and theres nothing binding you in a quick game.

Pro:
+Low Spec Graphics which still look beautiful.
+Great Gameplay.
+Cosmetic Item Skins.
+Co-Op Mode

Con:
-Still Buggy
-Server Desync(Not a Game problem, whoever is hosting on a potato)
-Weapons feel like they become OP at level 5

Solid 7/10 Solo, 10/10 with Mates.
This Review is written as of 28/04/16 and maybe be changed when problems have been patched.

Suggestions:
Linking Armor to Loadouts
Auto-Sync Armor
(For Hosters) Don't host servers on potatos
More Cosmetics
Bring Back Steam Market
Nerf the Bullet Hell and Melee Damage

Awesome game, ill make an honest review displaying both what i like and what i dislike. I'd like to say that this is THE most fun pvp combat game ive ever played, even with the cons.

Pros:
-An awesome skill-based pvp combat game which good customisability.
-Not toxic playerbase.
-Nice art design.
-Nice game functionality.

Cons:
-Some things like auto turrets making the game less skill based, as the turrets are sure to hit you, it is boring fighting against things that WILL hit you, should frankly just be removed without replacement, making small deal out of it.
-Some glitches at this point, expect the game to crash sometimes, the crashes seem to be linked with gameplay recording, im using OBS.
-Small playerbase, but dont worry, to this day, i have never played and not been able to join a game match, so it is a MINIMUM of one game available, got it?

Overall, i recommend this game to any pvp combat enthusiast, as it is a must for its stunning pvp combat.

IF the constant crashes does not stop, i will change this review to negative, i find it gamebreaking that the crashes occur so often. They all happen while im slashing with melee.

At first, I was deterred by the "Mixed" rating on the game, and its server "breakdown" about 6-7 months ago, but when I got it, I was amazed. The graphics are amazing for the type of game that it is, and the gameplay is extremely diverse, keeping you running.
