“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”

Just Updated



Block worlds are composed of delicate ecosystems that must be nurtured and maintained. However, the web of block life has started to groan under the weight crafted weaponry and discarded map geometry! What is to be done about this? How can the blocks be saved?


Our theme for update 1.4 is recycling! We’ve brought you a new feature that embodies each of the core principles of conservation that so many of us learned as wee block folks. Reduce: clear out your inventories of weapons and devices you don’t need via the long awaited Salvaging system! Reuse: trade away or sell weapons you don’t want or that you have multiple copies of via Steam Trading and the Steam Marketplace! Recycle: we’ve taken the original Titan Factory map and given it a major overhaul to turn it into the new Recylotron TDM/Horde mode map!

Update 1.3 brings our our newest Titan mode map - as with all our new releases, we think this is the best one yet! It's set on the rim of a meteor crater in the midst of an ancient jungle and features our first animal-themed Titans. We've also included our long-promised female character model, made deployable structures available in Titan mode, added some new skins and rolled up a bunch of smaller fixes.

For more details, check out the rest of our update notes on our blog here: https://playminimum.com/reduce-reuse-recycle-update-1-4-is-here

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!

Basically everyone who says what they say is:

This game is fun, a lot of fun, but its simply too broken. It requires a really good computer. Its incomplete, the servers are bad, and yet it says its fully done.
No one seems to have said this yet, but the servers currently, are actually pretty stupid. I cant play a single game mode without being kicked, the game just thinks im inactive, every time, and my cousin gets the same problem. So unless you plan on buying an incomplete game, dont get this.


EDIT: Alright people who dont see what im talking about, My internet is fine, my computer is fine, but the fact that everytime I play the game It says I'm inactive is a problem, whether or not other people have it I get this issue, meaning I cant play and my money was worthless, now do you understand why its a horrible flaw?

Here's two things I don't understand.
1.You put it on sale when the SSS 2015 begins, and then you put on the 3rd Flash Sale.
2. Why'd you go from a good sale to making tha game practically free?

Now the actual review.
So Minimum is a minimalistic fighting game, everything is polygonic except for the visual effects. They pull off putting both of them together and upping the anti with easy to learn gameplay that is fun to play and has some unique mechanics. Although it's a little buggy and keys sticking is the most major part of the problem, this game is definately worth more than even the base price. The fact that it's on sale (Steam Summer Sale 2015) is insane. This game is amazing and deserves more credit.

This game is SOOOOO much fun. From giant robots to little creeps Minimum brings the aesthetics in amazing forms. There are also different gamemodes from Titan Battles to Team Deathmatch and the hilarious Horde Mode where camping is key. This game should be more noticed on Stteam and should be rated 10/10.

Fun game, with some interesting mechanics and fast paced, gripping gameplay. But its been altogether abandoned by its developers, updates either being entirely underwhelming or non-existant. Its a shame, this game had a lot of potential, but I wouldnt reccommend it to anyone until its much more fleshed out, which probably isnt going to happen. The devs just dont care about this game any more.
