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.

Overall...Minimum has to one of the games I've played that shows so much potential. Although, ever since it was released, the developers, in my perspective, struggle strongly on performance for others who do not meet all the requirements than is what originally stated on Minimum's Steam page. I strongly recommend the developers to focus on overall framerate, and performance to allow as many users as humanly possible. So, I can finally see the overall reviews go from Mixed, to Mostly Positive.

I see Minimum still as an Early Access game that needs tons of work and developers that can read the disliked reviews and create a solution. I hate to see the users pay for a game that can't run properly and stays offline for who ever knows how long. I don't recommend this game to anyone that has a home desktop or any PC unless that PC or desktop is made specially for gaming. I'm curious to see how many users find this review helpful or not.

Very fun game, so simple yet so fun to play. Ended up playing this at the airport for awhile and almost lost track of time because this game is so good. Game optimizations would be nice though, a lot of FPS flux.

I have no idea about the problems that other users had with it being shut down and all. But iots back up and fun as hell! I bought this gem back in 2014 and havent played it since. Im so glad i played it again because this game is great. The only problem i had was that the play now button didnt work. I had to manually join a server from the browser. But when i got into a game i had a blast! Please!! Pick this game up now while on sale and maybe we can get some more populated servers. For a price of (Currently durring steam sale) 2.49, this game is worth it twice over.

Really, really fun game. I enjoyed it so much that I played it over 2,5h streight at first try. Only Negative is that there isnt really any servers BUT u can host your own and when I hosted a server for that session players joined very fast. U can find the server tool at "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Minimum\Binaries\MinimumLauncher" remember to open ports 8015 and 27015 (maybe also 7777 im not sure).

Gameplay:
Basically its 3rd person shooter whit little twist in it. When u kill enemies the drop "fragments" which u use to upgrade your armor. U also need to find some "crystal sharps" to upgrade your armor and those can be found some places of the map. U can upgrade your helmet, chestplate and leg armor max lvl for each of those is 3. U also can upgrade your weapon to lvl 5 by collectin "power ups" and u get those by killing enemies. When u die your gun lvl restarts but armor lvl will stay for the whole match. Everyone knows what team deathmatch is like so ill skip that. In Titan game mode there is 2 teams and both of them have 1 Titan. U basically need to get your Titan to enemy bace and let it destroy their core. On the way are walls and turrets. Also u need to destroy enemy Titan for your Titan to be able to reach enemy bace where the core is located. When Titans die Creeps will start spawning. Creeps will drop "Titan crystals" when killed. By collecting "Titan crystals" you titan will gain more hp. When timer is up both Titans will respawn and the more u collected "Titan crystals" the more your Titan will have hp.

I havent played Horde gamemode yet so I cant say anything about it.

Minimum Wiki had article about Ranked game mode but I dont know how to find match it or if its available anymore.

Pros:
Many different weapons
Many different armors
Good maps
Good gamemodes (atleast titan and team deathmatch I havent tried that horde game mode yet)
Easy to host server (u need to open 2 or 3 porst: 8105, 27015 and maybe 7777)
People join fast to your server if u decide to host one
Nice graphics (very personal opinion)

Cons:
Badly optimized
Not many servers online
Could have more players

I havent made this long review before and I tryed my best. Let me know how good/bad my review was. I also apologize my bad english.

This game is actually awesome, it's been shut down for aproximately 6 months for some reason but now it's back and I can honestly say that this game is beautiful at each and every mode and it's the kind of game where people can be saltier than the Dead Sea.

Its fun to play but it doesnt seem to be a finished product.
Most of the upgrades and content are still missing.

And we need more people playing on the servers. Most of the players seems to be bots. Well they play like normal humans so you wont be able to recognise if they are or not, but the standart chat phrases gives them away.

For now with this price its buyable on sale.

I hope more people will come and devs will finish adding up more content for armors and device upgrades.

Great game. Was down for a couple months but it came back. I like playing this game when i wanna kill time. Great time killer for sure. Titan mode is the best and is the game mode i prefer. You should pick it up and give it a try.

When this game came out I really liked playing it and I still do! But I think most people forgot this game and never played it again after it was shut down for a while, it only needs players to play it and it will work again.
So, if some of you got a Youtube channel or something you only have to tell people about Minimum.
I hope the game will come back as fast as possible!

Thank you for listening!

I think it is really sad that this game only gets medium review, which is probably because it had a long time, where the servers did't work. But now that the game is fixed it needs to be played again.
It is a lot of fun. The wepaons are unique and fun to use and the game overal is easy to learn, but hard to master.
I live this game and recommend it to anyone who is even remotely interrested.

This game is wonderful, it just needs a player base. Steam/producers need to put this on sale to get players. Once the players come it will be enjoyable. Or... add a single player mode. As of now you can't get a match.

I love this game, don't get me wrong. When I first started playing there were many servers full of players, which made the game more exciting. But after the game went down for about half a year, the whole community died. There are only about 2 servers per gamemode most of the time, and most of the time the servers are half empty. The gameplay itself is extremely fun (who doesn't like fighting with giant flaming swords?). Every weapon, sword, and set of armor has a unique ability, and are all balanced for the most part. This game should have a larger community, and that's why I recommend it. It would be great to see new players on the game, and to see the community grow.
