Progress Report


Greetings Minimum Fans!

We’d like to give an update on the progress we’re making towards getting Minimum back up and running. As we previously announced , we have been working diligently to replace the gameplay and account server architecture after an unforeseen closure of the third party service powering these systems.

We have enlisted a development partner with significant experience working the MBER platform to help, and they have made significant progress in getting the key systems rebuilt. Atari and Human Head have jointly agreed to move the game to this new team going forward.

The development team has made steady and significant progress toward getting the game back up and running, but there are still a few pieces left to iron out. We are currently able to spin up an internal server, manually join in players, and run matches. We are now focusing on the various progression/customization components (blueprints, unlocks, loadouts, etc.). Based on current progress, the game should be back up and running in early 2016. We will update this timing as we learn more detail.

Again, we truly appreciate your patience as we work through the process of rebuilding the Account and Server structure for Minimum. We understand this is an inconvenience, and we are working as quickly as possible to get everything resolved.

Thanks, and Happy Holidays,

The Minimum Team

Minimum Update and Next Steps

Minimum Fans,

Following our announcement last week, we regret to inform you that the server downtime on Minimum will extend a bit longer. With that said, we have established a strategy to get the game back up and running, and are pushing to get this work done ASAP.

As mentioned in the previous post, Minimum's account and gameplay servers have experienced some issues. A key middleware behind these systems has been discontinued by the service provider, effectively disabling the game for the time being. Unfortunately, this is more complex than a simple change in server provider, so some additional dev work is required. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience. You will see that we have paused the sale of the game until the issue is resolved.

Again, we have a plan in place to fix this issue. We will need a few weeks to get this implemented, but the result is a Minimum game experience that is more flexible, more stable, and just as much fun. We are aware there is lots of concern and discussion in the community. We are hearing these voices and we are doing everything we can to get the game back up as quickly as we can.

Thanks again for your patience, and stay tuned as we get more visibility into details, timing, and feature tweaks.

The Minimum Team

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!

Going to ask Steam Support for a refund, they shut the servers down so you cant even log in to the game itself, whether or not this is a permanent downtime, it leaves the developers unreliable, therefore not worth anything atm.

I have now been informed by multiple sources, that the game is coming back. They need to rewrite a lot of code and are suppousdly working on the game still. I in the state the game was when i played it broken, swords were OP and nothing mattered as long as you had a guy with a upgraded sword. Game play was stale and nothing very new, much more enjoyable games on the market. The idea was very intresting and i'de love to see what they'll do when/if they get servers back up but until then still a no for buying it.
