“I didn't expect giant robots or MOBA elements to play a front-and-center role. But Minimum incorporates them in a way that feels new and authentic”

“From the first moment I got to sit down with Minimum...I knew I was going to be in for a treat”

“Minimum's solid mechanics make it a fun shooter”

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.

Tags : MTD - Multiplayer Team Deathmatch

At the time of review the game said there were 42 players /10 on the only one server left, which was team deathmatch.
Game seemed fun but this computer cant run it too good even on low. I got kicked for idling while I was circling around the base trying to find ennemies to shoot

I dont think this game will still be around by the time I upgrade my rig... it has LAN and player hosted servers so I guess in theory its not as permanently useless as other titles of the genre, but barely at all... without a single player those games really lose all their appeal when they reach that stage.

Will keep on eye on that one and will remove file contents and hide from library soon enough I'd wager

EDIT : For a NON-DEAD alternative to this game you can get Murder Miner for dirt cheap, its like a halo/minecraft hybrid and because its also on xbox live it has a ♥♥♥♥ ton of players and isnt dead at all... minimum had potential to be better. but potential isnt worth squat if you cant make anything of it

Early Access Review
Posted: May 9, 2014
Not much has changed about the core game since May 2014, a whole bunch of bugs have been fixed, new maps and weapons have been added, and the netcode was slightly improved :P


Minimum is a twitch shooter with titans and creep farming.
So there's Quake III in here, there's UT3 in here, feels a lot like Warframe too, and the concept of momentum from MOBAs is in here too.
Run around, kill enemies and go on killstreaks to upgrade your weapons, watch two titans march down the middle (by themselves) and meet to engage in hand to hand combat in the middle, shoot titans in the legs, cry when both titans die, go farm slaughter creeps to make your titan even more powerful next time, and kill more enemies because you just got killed that god damn sniper is back again and you need to power your weapons up again.

Rinse and repeat, until your titan breaks smashes through the enemy walls like an angry baby and heroically punches (where applicable, existence of arm-like limbs not guaranteed) the enemy power core (or whatever the hell that thing is) and cause MASSIVE EXPLOSIONS, indicating your sweet sweet victory against the enemy team.

A total of over 20 weapons and over 15 craftable armour pieces makes your fighting style as confused as your grandmother with a Shake Weight TM customisable as can be.
Oh, didn't I mention it before?
When you kill enemies and creeps, you get crafting materials to craft armour to enhance your combat capabilities by boosting things like damage resistance, movement speed, and jumps, while at the same time (sometimes) lowering other stats like total health and movement speed.
So uh, we can throw Minecraft in there, right?
...Kinda. The crafting is more like how Terraria does it, you collect materials and choose something to craft, you won't be forced to lay out your resources on a 3x3 crafting grid during combat :P

The graphics are awesome too, what is lost in texture quality is more than made up for in particle effects with explosive plasma grenades, explosive sniper rounds, explosive explosives, and glowing swords.
You read this right, swords.
Glowing, particle trail active, slashy swords.
Which give you superpowers.
Then again, so do most of the weapons.
Jumping, dashing, vision enhancement, telekinesis, (you can redirect projectiles) the list goes on!

Words cannot do this game justice, and just by signing up you can get cool exclusive armour, too :P
Shameless referral link, please click me
Aaaand if you purcahse and play while the game is in Early Access, you get an exclusive reskin of the Inferno Katanas to play with :D

Quake + Unreal Tournament + Warframe + Dota + Terraria + Michael Bay
Lots of weapons, lots of armour
Buy now get extra swords
Go play it now.

There are a lot of poor, bad reviews out there from people who didn't put very much time into the game to actually try it out, so i wanted to make this review for those who don't want to miss out on a great game for it's price now and a potentially even better game down the road.

I played this game for 7 hours yesterday 9/12/2014 after purchasing it for 5 dollars.
I have 20 years of gaming experience, playing from the OG Hexxen and Doom up to the new Unreals and Far crys and everything in between. So take some of my comments on tactics or ways to play, coming from bringing old game knowledge into a new game with old gameplay style.

TL:DR If you don't like fast paced, twitch based combat, with no bullet drop, no lead time, and point and click weapons ALA unreal, or OG CS. you'll hate this game, because it will punish you for being a bad player. if you like those things and have always been good at them, enjoy your 23/0 score (hint: BH+SSG+Grenade = gg). The game is not completely finished! but has really tight controls and movement, feels like a solid game, and has lots of potential! Support these guys, they have created a really great hybrid. Thanks alot devs :)

First off this game is SOOOO much fun! IF! you like twitch based shooters and MOBA esque gameplay smooshed together with a fun simplistic blocky style to it that keeps your attention focused on the action. <---- If that turns you off, DON'T BUY IT!

You don't need to aim ahead, there is no bullet drop, quick scoping is a thing, and if your a high speed mofo, who used to love playing insta gib on unreal, playing snipers in this game will be cake, and will net you ALOT of profit.

MAJOR DISCLAIMER: This game is JUST barely out of early access, it's basically a beta right now. Meaning, there are alot of coming soon, and not implemented yet, for different upgrades and such on weapons and armors and what not. It literally says the build is like 0.5#### right now.

that being said IMHO it is totally worth 5 dollars, hell i would pay ten (provided i have the information i have now after playing it).

Gameplay and Asethetics: The graphics are simple, yet convey quite well what's going on, with the glow of weapons giving off an idea of your opponents weapon levels, and armor being able to usually distinguish what someone is wearing, if your willing to get that close. The ability to mix and match armor sets, as well as choose your own loadouts is very satisfying, as you get to compliment your weapon build with your armor build, getting things like +20% or +15% damage. You get to earn resources and craft your gear from blue prints. The progression is very satisfying.

Titan Mode: It starts, you have enough resource to craft one piece of armor, of three that you can wear. Helmet, Chestpiece, Leggings. You have your two weapons, and a extra item, grenade or mini gun turret.
So you immiedieatly go out to find your opponents and shoot/stab them to death. Did i mention their is melee!? So much fun.
Your titans have also spawned and are marching to meet in the middle of the map, you want to go put as much damage on your opponents titan as possible as an early pressure can really hurt them if they are not paying attention. Usually though, if both teams are somewhat competent or decent, or just paying attention. Both titans die quite quickly, then it goes into creep farming phase. In this phase, you want to kill the wee little creeps for crystals (which add +1 to your titans strength) and give you resources to upgrade your armors! (+20% health? yes pelase! 15% MOAR damage?! yes please!). Keep an eye out for the GOLDEN CREEP! when it dies and drops it's ONE golden resource the team to secure this immiedieatly gets +10 strength to their titan. When the timer ends for this phase, then it's back to tians smashing eachother and your (or hopefully the enemy teams) walls and eventually base. That is the game currently.

Current Game Balance IMHO: The overall balance is solid, with only a few weapons seeming kind of meh, and everything else feeling strong to use. The two main starter weapons are easily the strongest in the game sans snipers. but that depends on your skill level. Melee is strong, but low skill entry low ceiling, easy to kite.

It's interesting. Nice combat mechanics and weapon balance, although it quite often feels like melee weapons can absolutely destroy anyone, even with a ranked-up shotgun (which seems much weaker than I think it should be) or AR. But my main issue is the laggy graphics when I try to run it on a laptop with 8GB RAM. But it's lots of fun and has a pretty good matchmaking and balancing system. I look forward to seeing some updates on weaopns and armor.

Ok sure the game was down for a while, but everything is back up and running. It isnt as well optimized as it was before the servers closed but all the gamemodes are back and it is actually a playable games with unique cool weapons and fun team battling mechanics. Many people rated this badly because of the long server shutdown so those are old reviews andshould be ignored. Overall this game is great, even if it doesnt run TOO well it is fun. I recommend this on all levels because the devs are doing all they can and I highly respect that. Get this game its awesome!!!!

This is the worst game I've ever played. Don't hate on me, but here's my point.

1. The lag breaks the game.

2. Half the players hack.

3. There is no report button.

4. The balancing is horrid.

5. Noobs get turned away due to no tutorial.

6. Did I mention the P2W aspect yet?

7. You have to turn off your computer to exit this garbage game.
